Happy Times

Good morning all you lovely crafters and a big hello to my new followers, you are soooo welcome.
Still loving the sunshine, when I don't have to work of course, though we did have a wee shower last night, see what today brings.
Whilst chatting to a couple of my customers yesterday we ended up in absolute fits of laughter recalling things that had happened when we were younger.
 One thing I remembered was when my mum decided to cut my sisters hair. She got a bowl out of the kitchen, it was white with two blue stripes around it, everyone seemed to have one, do you remember them?  She put it on her head and started to cut around the back, OK...... so far....... then she began cutting the sides, only the bowl must have moved cos one side was longer than the other, so the bowl went back on and she cut some off the longer side, mmmmm, the back looked a bit wonky, back the bowl went, snip snip, OMG, no hair later, it was sort of finished. I wanted to laugh my head off but daren't cos I was getting ready to run..... I sure as heck didn't want to be next!!!!!
Now I wouldn't have gone to school but off she went and the funniest thing was when she brought a friend home at tea time to ask mum if she'd cut her hair the same......hilarious.... don't know if she'd bribed her or what... but she must have been off her rocker.....
I wonder what happened to the bowl?
Happy days.
