With my arm healing so well and the mobility improving every day, I have been able to start wearing clothes I have not been able to get into since my surgery. No longer do I have to rely only on my selection of button up tops.
I have always loved the nautical looking stripey tops and have quite a selection in my cupboard. So the other day I decided I felt like it was time to be a bit more daring and wear my blue and white striped T-shirt. I was so excited that I was able to get it onto my body without much effort and discomfort! I went to the mirror, put on some make up, and tied a pretty blue scarf around my head to match the whole outfit.
Now I have to say that I have managed to accumulate a variety of scarves and assorted headgear, mostly due to generous local and overseas friends and family. I have become rather confident in tying scarves and headscarves around my little bald dome or as I like to call it my LBD (similar to the little black dress, but not!).
I had no need to be at all concerned about choosing and finding just the right headscarf to go with my stripes. UNTIL I had a closer look…..my lovely stripes and my head scarves do not make a great combination……unless you are Johnny Depp or playing a pirate in a panto!
I was devastated…no stripey tops until my hair has grown back, or until I am invited to a pirate party! ***SIGH***(or rather ARRR)….
