RTL, hopefully I will get to see my sister this year, we spent a lot of time together in the year before lockdown, our dad passed away March 2019 and it was comforting to be with her.

Mowsehowse I did my first one in 2017 just a few weeks after I lost my husband.

By the way I love the diary thread!

  My first one was 2017 as well. That is probably the year we were told about it.

Perhaps 2017 was the first year RTL wrote about it here?

Yes, Bearnan, why not join in the diary thread?  It would be great to have you on there too I am sure.  I don't always manage to keep up but will keep popping in as I can.

Yes, it was 2017 when I saw an article about Mass Observation in a family history magazine and posted about this.  I remember that you were the first to respond Caroline to say you would do it too.  Little did we know then that several years later we would be contributing to another diary on here recording our lives during a pandemic!  :o I can hardly believe it will be the 5th year coming up in May we will be writing for Mass Observation.

Caroline, your Mother, looks like a very pretty and elegant lady with perfectly groomed hair and make up in your avatar. 
I am quite embarrassed by the state of my hair now and I am a bit nervous of cutting my own hair in case I make things worse.  I think so many of us are in the same boat.  A sister in law of mine recently wrote to me that she is looking like raggy Annie (whoever that is) and she adds that my brother now looks like Mozart. ;D
I hope you will like your new hair dresser .. I am hoping my old one will still be in business.

If you have a local college running a hair dresser's course I am sure they would be delighted to try and emulate the style for you Caroline. (I often used to go to the one in Risca, and you can negotiate if you will model for beginners or almost qualified.)
It is a lovely photo. :D

How time flies doesnít ... non more so than over the past year which is remarkable and scary at the same time!

Thank you for your comments regarding my mother she was beautiful in her youth... I always think it sad to look at her picture aged 90 not long before she died and compare the two youíd have never known it was the same person... suppose itís the same for us all! 😢

Donít think we have a hairdressing college nearby... as a WI we used to go to a catering college and have a meal there as a celebration... they were very good and much cheaper than a restaurant!
