A lucky escape ...

I had my hair done on Friday and had a very lucky escape ... I was sitting in the chair, chatting away to my lovely hairdresser, having my highlights done ( Yes ... I know its a shock, but I am not an entirely natural blonde ...)

Well, suddenly, from nowhere, the hairdresser's comb stabbed me in the eye lid. It was one of those long sharp spiky comb ends ...

One minute I was chatting, the next I was holding my eye .. well, not literally my eye ...  Luckily I have lightning reactions and managed to move out the way before it hit my actual eye ball. It glanced onto my eye bone socket thingy ...

I did feel a bit light headed for a second, but quickly recovered and was fine, apart from a tender eye socket, a small cut and the realisation that I had been very lucky.

My poor hairdresser was beside herself. She was so upset - pressing ice packs to my eye, glasses of water and cubes of fudge to my lips ... "30 years of hairdressing!!!" and she had never so much as cut anyone with her scissors, never mind stabbed somebody!!

Poor girl. It was just an accident and I am fine. In fact I am more than fine because she did my hair for no charge. Result! But I do shiver a bit when I think what might have happened ...

Lucky escape. Can imagine the fright you got! So glad it wasn't serious.

That sounds like a narrow escape, I think I may now have to add the hairdressers to my list of phobias (along with the swimming pool!). I always feel a bit funny after having my head tipped back into one of those sinks. It makes me quite dizzy. Your hairdresser sounds like a gem though, bless her for being so upset and giving you a free haircut! Love the blog by the way.
