It's Axl Small

Firstly, hello to some lovely new followers and thank you for all the comments on yesterday's post about making the wood burner earn its keep.  Some great tips.

We've been having a bad hair day here for quite a while.  In fact it's probably been a bad hair quarter!  One of Small's problems is sensory, and he can't cope with hair washing or hair cutting.  It's actually true that hair that isn't washed will keep itself clean, but that doesn't stop it growing and at the moment his hair is at that horrible in-between stage where it isn't long enough to keep out of his eyes but not short enough that it doesn't flop into them.  I was getting fed up of him trying to blow it out of his eyes, so we have found a solution.

Meet Axl Small.

Housemate had a bandana sitting around doing nothing, so we've pinched it.  Problem solved.  HMS calls Small "rock star" anyway because of his long-ish hair.  Personally I think he's just jealous as his own hair gets shorn within a 16th of an inch of its life every 3 or 4 weeks!

In other news we've signed up to give geocaching a go once the weather gets warmer.  It sounds like a fun idea that will not only give walks an additional purpose, but will also encourage navigation, map reading, discussion, exercise and fun.

Hoping you're safe and warm, or alternatively safe and cool for those of you in the southern hemisphere.

Until next time. x


  1. I think that is a great look, he'll be playing air guitar in no time :) Hasn't the weather been vile here today? Managed to get caught in a hailstorm when I walked down to school this afternoon and a rainstorm when we went grocery shopping this evening. It's lovely to know we don't have to go out again, stay cosy.


Comments welcomed. Your words and encouragement make it all worthwhile.
