Is your hair wild and flowing? Have you piled on the pounds through boredom and lack of excercise? 
I know a couple of people who dont even get dressed in the daytime now.....they see no point.
No hair or nail salons open, even if you do like to be pampered it's do it yourself time now for everyone.

I made the life changing decision to stop dying my hair at the beginning of lockdown, I now have almost white hair at the front, the rest is still dark, but before long i will chop a few inches off the length....I am embracing the grey, something i have been wanting to do for years. Cool

I've actually lost a significant amount of weight, but that happens every time I spend a while in England -- combination of walking, stair-climbing and the healthy meals eddie makes for me I love you

As far as hair, etc.; I don't have very much in the first place and I don't dye it. Also, I maintain the whole hair/beard thing with electric trimmers, so nothing much has changed for me except that I wish I hadn't forgotten to pack a belt Smile

I ate worse because I let a girl move in for about 3 months because she needed a place to crash for "two weeks". It was sort of a bad idea, which are usually some of my more fun ideas. Not in this case.

So, besides that, and maybe 5 extra pounds, nothing really changed. I was essential so I went to work every day, rode my bike 3-4 days a week and spent less money because there were no bars or breweries open for awhile.

That's okay -- more than okay; I love that about you.

And I get that certain clothing doesn't go with certain shoes, etc. I love you

As long as shoes are comfy that does me on holiday, I usually end up with loads of plasters all over my feet anyway. Crying or Very sad
Not that holidays are a concern at the moment....or shoes come to that.

Has she left now?
An awkward time to have a house guest who has overstayed their welcome.

I had let my hair grow for a while before all this started, I have visions of shiny flowing locks, which it was after I left the hairdressers or had the time or could be bothered with all the proper drying and styling, mainly though it was a lank mess so I decided to go back to short hair on the Thursday before lockdown, its ok but I tend to look like a cockatoo when I get up in the mornings.

Yeah, she moved out a few weeks ago. It's all good and were still friends. But it wasn't the most pleasant time in my life. I think the Corona stress didnt help.

My hair is long as it was when I was in school.
Has a good shine though. Laughing
