A few years ago one of my mates was telling me a story and she said that she was ‘scrampling‘ for something and I was like ‘What the hell does scrampling mean?‘. Turns out it was one of those weird made up words that only means something to her family. It means to pat around on shelves in the dark looking for something. It really is the perfect word. It’s practically onomatopoeia. I re Read the rest!

How Should I Get My Hair Cut This Afternoon?

by Carly Jacobs
So I’m braving a new hair salon this afternoon. I’ve had a massive struggle with finding a good curly hair cutter since my Regan left me. Regan was an artist. He’d hold my chin in his hands while his eyes glazed over and then he’d say ‘Darling… do you trust me?‘.
