Shopping, hair and weather...

We went to do our weekly shop this morning, it was pouring with rain. We were back home to a hot cup of tea and a biscuit. I sat to play on the PS4 as my side is still hurting after a pre- Christmas strain. For us, it is a 5 week shopping month so will be expensive. Warmed up some lamb and vegetable soup for lunch.

I need to oil my scalp as it is very dry. This is nothing new and I know it is not my new shampoo. Some members in our family suffer with a scalp condition, mine is mild but flared up before Christmas. It has taken a while to get rid of the 'cradle cap' element, but using the shampoo needed to clear it, has resulted in a snow storm!

Now is the relief from flakiness and itching phase and no, I don't use anti dandruff shampoo for it as it doesn't work for me. Warm oil, a few drops of essential oil, left on for a few hours, then washed off. A few sessions usually sort it out.

The rain has stopped for now but the wind is still gusting. We shall be lighting the wood burner for a few days with the cold evenings due.

Tomorrow I hope to bake using the baking fix.

  1. I find coconut oil is very good for dry skin and cheap as a little goes a long way. I also use it for my nails and a half teaspoon each night helps Rupert's furballs.

  2. I am intrigued by the purchase of the PS4 over Christmas. What games do you play on it. I have to admit that I am hopeless on games consoles, don' t think my thumbs have the necessary agility!

    1. Uncharted, The last of us, little big planet! I don't play many games, usually 3rd person adventure. I did play one horror game, Dead Space, gave me a bad dream first night:) I find bosses very difficult!

  3. You might have seborrhea - Denorex shampoo is very good for that. Warm olive oil is good. Dont use anti-dandruff shampoo.

  4. The rain is still pouring here and there is local flooding again. The Parkrun park was still flooded in parts last week so who knows what state it will be in by tomorrow:(

    1. Bad isn't it. We are lucky to live in the driest area of the UK and usually suffer in Summer.
