And the finish line is here…

Here we are at the final day of NaBloPoMo 2012.  I’ve made it through another year.

This month has reminded me that there is plenty to write about, even if there isn’t quite enough substance to write deep, thoughtful posts, for thirty days straight.  I feel that I should congratulate myself on not subjecting you to too many cross-posts or random photographs.  However I feel like the overall quality of the posts would have fetched me, at best, a C-.  More work required.

I would like to say that this month will lead me to posting more frequently, but I know myself too well now and am going to be fairly honest about it.  I may post more often.  It would be nice to get back on the writing bandwagon and it would be nice to get back to the writing style I had when I first started Oh Waily all those years ago.  I feel like I have lost something of my writing style mojo.  Things feel dumbed down and not quite so observant.  Life has fuzzied up my mental clarity.  Thanks Life !

Now, who had the recipe for the anti-fuzzies spray?  Hmm, must look it up and see how to scrub the moss and mildew off the old braincells.    Given a bit of spring cleaning and I may be vaguely back in the blogging frame of mind.  Wish me luck !

(Oh, and a trip somewhere interesting wouldn’t go amiss in stimulating creativity either!  Just saying Universe, just saying.)

An Unexpected Journey – Part 2

So the previous version of the Unexpected Journey was not quite what you would expect. Today I hope to make it up to you.

The airline of Middle Earth is rather well known (at least in this part of the world) for their humorous approach to the inflight briefing.  It should, therefore, come as no surprise to find that they are enjoying the arrival of The Hobbit.

Here’s the airplane…

Hobbit 777-300

And here is the latest briefing from the airline of Middle Earth.  Enjoy!

The Fix

After yesterday’s post about our Unexpected Journey, I figure that I should give you the opportunity to see the end result of the fix.

It is fair to say that Miss Oh would have survived the Roaring Twenties with her style in tact.  Louise Brooks eat your heart out !

The side fix

As you can see, her fringe did not miss out on the snipper treatment, it just wasn’t as obvious last night in light of the honking great chunk of hair that was missing.

The fix

Gingermen make everything all right. Don’t they?

An Unexpected Journey

No.  I am not talking about tomorrow’s premier of The Hobbit.

The Oh Waily family will be taking an unexpected journey to the hairdresser in the morning after Miss Oh Waily decided that she had had enough of hair that was full of tangles each morning.

Please tell me that all children do this, to one extent or another.  Personally I know I did this to my fringe when slightly younger than Miss Oh.  The night before I was due to have studio portraits taken as well.  I was not quite as gung ho as my darling daughter, but I still have the photographs to prove that hairdressing was never a future career option for me.

So here it is – the chop.


As you can see, a short cropped bob not unlike her mother’s own, will probably be the result of her decision to snip. Certainly less likely to be tangled in the mornings for a while now.  She was not wrong about that.
