20 months

These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago. That's my boyfriend wearing a cuddly woodlouse on his head. Also look at the quantity of loose hair I have.

I'm a self confessed lazy cow when it comes to my dreads. I can't be bothered with most things that fit the category of maintenance but when I saw this picture it made me want to sort some of the mess out so tonight I spent a while with a tapestry needle and crochet hook swearing a lot and attacking the loose bits.

Once it was a bit tidier it made it clear how much they are still changing. I find it interesting to see how they evolve.

I am definitely up for some professional maintenance at some point because doing the back of my own head is infuriating and my ham-fisted attempts never last. Anyone in London that can help?

its been a while :)

I've not been on LJ for the past few months, so i thought i'd post some recent pics. My dreadies seem to be gaining some length, finally! i haven't hennaed for a few months because i wanted to grow the colour out, but i kind of miss it now, so i may do it again soon. Also, i'm feeling impatient and wanting to use extentions again, but i'm unsure.

I made a vegan pumpkin pie today. I suck at cooking, and I've yet to eat it but it looks pretty.
*edit, the boy and I have eaten it and it is tasty! Yay!

Pie and a few dreads!

Also, I wish all of you a postive experience with your family over this holiday season. I live 3,000 miles away from my nearest relative so I don't have to deal with anyone face to face, but I got a real nasty phone call from home last night that reminds me why family gatherings were hell for me. My grandmother told me I wasn't beautiful anymore, that I wore scummy clothes, hung out with homeless people and that dreadlocks are formed out of filth and full of cockroaches. Of course I tried to argue with her against these points but nobody in my family actually listens to what I have to say.

I hope everyone else has a more welcoming family and surround themselves with people who treat them nicely!
