Envious of Ingrid’s headbands, I went shopping for one for myself. My hair is getting long (because there is always something more important to do than to sit for an hour at the hairdresser’s) and it gets in my face when I’m outside, mowing the lawn or digging in the dirt.

To my disappointment, my choice was very limited. Black or white. Several variations of each, but still, not a single actual colour to be found.

Now I look like a pirate when I mow the lawn.
