  • Blog Post: Regrowth

    There's enough hair there now that I can go out without a hat. Not that I was wearing the hat for anyone's benefit but my own; nevertheless.
  • Blog Post: God tempers all the winds to the new-shorn lamb/The Devil knows the Bible like the back of his hand

    - which is merely my way of saying that I got fed up of the stupid fluffy bits that were left on my scalp and I got Judy to razor them off, going for the full Magwitch. It looks a bit bizarre, but at least I am now in no danger of being pulled in by the fuzz. (A painful procedure, at best.) So. Anyway...
  • Blog Post: The small picture

    Sometimes, as the actress has no doubt said to the Bishop many times, it's the little things that matter. When it comes to the big stuff - oh, let us say, for the sake of argument, sitting down one day in a clinic and being told that there is a crab eating away at your insides - then it's easy...
  • Blog Post: Lucky, lucky, lucky

    Another blog post, I hear you ask. Why, Ambassador, you spoil us. But the good news, at least, the good news for me is, I don't actually have to do much writing on this one; most of it comes from a conversation I had with Little My. You see, I commented on someone's post that I felt like a fraud...
  • Blog Post: Blah blah blah KITTENS!!

    One thing nobody tells you when you get sick - or, at least, nobody told me - is that cancer smells. I mean literally in this case, although, obviously, figuratively too. It doesn't matter how often I bathe, I can't get the smell out of my skin. Judy says she doesn't notice, but I'm acutely...
  • Blog Post: Kicking against the pricks

    What I done on my Wednesday: got up far too early; drove, or rather was driven by Judy, to the Churchill - different route, similarly horrendous traffic, if I ever get really ill I think we shall have to take lodgings in Headington, maybe the man with the shark on his roof will take us in; waited around...
  • Blog Post: Hair: less

    This is going to be a quick, well, quickish, update, just for my own records really, and v boring. Sorry! But before I start - I don't have as much trouble with the Mac site as a lot of people, maybe because I wasn't using the old one for that long before it changed, but why in the name of...
  • Blog Post: It's not just my baby that's gone down the plughole

    EW EW EW THERE IS A DEAD RAT IN THE BATH - oh, no, wait. As you were. It's just ol' Burt again. Useful Suggestions for hair loss have now expanded to include tea cosies. "A cat-shaped tea cosy," was the helpful addendum. You know what, we actually used to have one of those, but it...
  • Blog Post: Hair today - ah, you know the rest

    Thus far my dear, loving friends' suggestions for dealing with hair loss have included "boot polish", "disguise yourself as Jean-Luc Picard", and "put a cat on your head". I'm thinking of firing the lot of them and renting a whole new set of friends. Judy's contribution...
  • Blog Post: Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen

    I think we - that's the royal 'we', and I don't know why I do that, being as how I am actually common as muck - have to prepare ourselves for hair loss. Quite a lot came out when I washed it this morning - not clumps, but a good plugholeful of loose strands, which reminds me, I must clean...
