The Tale of Elephants and Tangled Hair
Karen, Emma and I went shopping in Glasgow yesterday.
We decided to catch the train - a much more relaxing way of getting there than driving. I find driving in Glasgow just a wee bitty stressful and I don't like feeling stressed :))
Nobody bought very much but we did a fair bit of window shopping.
I just had to put this picture up.
If you been reading my blog you will know that I just love elephants (for some strange reason unknown to me or anybody else!!)
This elephant was outside of Hamleys Top Shop in The Enoch Centre - isn't he just the cutest. :))
I did ask the girls to go and stand beside him but neither of them would do it, hmmmph!!!
We really enjoyed out girl's day out but came home feeling very tired - there was a reason for this though.
On Sunday night Emma's friend (who is training to be a hairdresser) came around and decided she wanted to do Emma's hair. Now Emma has very long, thick hair and it is her crowning glory - you just know where I am going with this don't you?
Well, they got a smallish round brush and decided to wind her hair right up to the top of her scalp onto this brush and blow dry it. As you can probably guess it got completely stuck. Her hair was totally tangled - what a mess!!!!
So between Karen, Danny and myself we spent 4 hours - yup I said FOUR hours untangling her hair.
I did think at one point we were going to have to cut it out but we eventually managed to untangle it.
We were up until 2am in the morning doing this!!!
Poor Emma had a very sore scalp and head and it was sore all day yesterday.
I think a good lesson was learned though - never use to small a brush on long hair.
Let me tell you there is never a dull moment in our house, there is always something exciting happening to keep us on our toes.
