Fun Monday # 14 Isn't every day a bad hair day!!!



Robin's our host for today:

What's her challenge? She thinks Bloggers are notorious exhibitionists...we bare our hearts...we bare our souls...and sometimes...SOMETIMES...we bare our faces. It's not our faces she's interested in, though...it's
OUR HAIR! She wants us to find our WORST "BAD HAIR DAY" EVAH! If you're the unfortunate soul who has more than one, well then, post as many as you're willing.


As far as I'm concerned everyday is a bad hair day and I get around this by being the person who takes the photos of the rest of the family. Most of my really awful photos have long since been cut up and thrown out never to be seen again. I managed to find a few like the teenage perm, middle age perm blowing in the wind, the time I asked for highlights and came out virtually blond. The day I didn't have a comb handy, a bun that looks as though it been stuck on top of my head (it's all my own hair I promise). I've also added a few extra to make up the number and thanks to darling daughter number 2 for preparing my collage (she's rather cross with me because I keep changing my mind about which photos to include sorry Beccy XX).

Have a good laugh but don't be too unkind to this poor OAP who has seen better days but not many if these photos are anything to go by!!!

PS I have just noticed that Beccy's own collage did not include one particular photo that I sent her. If I get enough requests I MIGHT just post it!! (well if she'll let me- mmm if she says 'no' will I listen to her!!

11:15pm By popular request I'm adding this one of BECCY (I assure you it's not me) and as she pointed out its a bad face day but I think you'll enjoy it !!

Hey, what happened to the 6x6 collage? We've been screwed, this one is only 4x4! Anyway, you know you've had some bad hair days when you need a collage ;)

POST IT! POST IT! Hell it can't be any worse than the Boy George picture! (Ha! and she thought I didnit notice!)

Oh, PS. There really is a strong family resemblance in some of the B&W pictures.

Gosh you are brave. I'd never let anyone see a photo of my eighties perm.

sabrina It has to be very warm to get me in the water.

willowtree I thought I was going a bit OTT with 36 so changed it (you got a sneak preview). I always thing both my daughters look like I used to when I was around their ages- not sure they want to acknowledge this!!

barbara ahh but I wouldn't be recognised now I'm a wrinkly.

I'm with Willow. I could have sworn a couple of those were beccy. I love the curly top ones!

Yes, post, post, post the picture of Beccy. Your pictures are fun to see Chris B over the years. Actually, I like the picture in the lower right-hand corner. You have that natural wind-blown look.

You look beautiful in every photo.I specially liked the black % white ones.On 4th photo,first row ,you look like Furgie,the Duchess!!(I like Furgie btw):))

Back to blogging Monday for me.I planted whole bunch of veggies yesterday,still need to plant some more,I will post the picture in 2 weeks:))

Here from your daughter's blog. I also noticed how much she resembles you! Like your daughter, you look like a completely different person in each pic. My favorite is the b/w with you holding your baby. Beautiful!

 
At 23/4/07 14:54, Blogger ChrisB said...

min and mjd oooh she may not be too pleased if I add it shall I ... can I be that cruel!! hehe :)

asha its funny you mention Fergie because years ago her photo was in the paper that bore a definite resemblence to one of my photos taken in my 20's. I cannot remember which one it was now.

I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your veg patch in use.

gina that is daughter Sam becks&posh

Great collage! The black and white pics are fantabulous!

Revenge may be sweet mummy dearest!

 
At 23/4/07 15:37, Blogger Sam said...

half of these are not bad hair days, they are beautiful mum days. Love the one in the bottom right especially and naked in the bath? You've got some cheek!

 
At 23/4/07 15:47, Blogger ChrisB said...

nikki you're supposed to pick up on the really bad ones!!

beccy will you really be upset- no I don't think so you're too much of a good sport or so you're always telling me and you can't get revenge on a poor old lady!!

Sam I had to add a few to make up the numbers for the collage. But you must agree some are hideous.

in the tub!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
.... who took that picture????


I'm not seeing bad hair.
enjoyable pictures.

enidd thinks it's jolly lucky she only made it back to blogistan after fun monday ended. whew! (oh, and can she put in a vote to see beccy's photo?)

 
At 23/4/07 17:24, Anonymous Robin said...

Don't let Beccy intimidate you! She's DYING for us to see "it"!

Pamela was wrong, I see one bad hair day...maybe two. I'm totally impressed with you, the surfer, and you, the literal bathing beauty! You go, girl!!

And yes, I wasn't sure if all of these pictures were you, or some were of your daughters!

Like the others alot of these are pretty good. I like the one on the lower right corner. I think windswept is pretty. I always like a picture of a mum and her new baby also. There are a couple of bad hair days though and you look a lot like your daughters! Its amazing. I don't look anything like my mother I look more like my dad.

HEY - some of these are NOT bad hair...some of these were slipped in to trick us, I think. The new mom pic is wonderful - as well as that B&W one on the lower right hand corner.

But - the curly frizz hair for sure was a Fun Monday pic!!!

 
At 23/4/07 20:31, Blogger ChrisB said...

pamela don't tell anyone it was a female flatmate to send to my then boyfriend, later husband and now EX. You must admit it was very respectable.

enidd you are a coward I think this was well planned- you can always post it late we won't mind. The votes are creeping up!!

robin I think the picture will have to be added.

my4kids I had to use a few less bad photos to make up the numbers

karmyn there were far too many curly frizz days when I looked awful in the 80's especially if you got wet lucky noone had a camera around when that happened to me!!

 
At 23/4/07 21:37, Blogger Beccy said...

OK, the photo you want to post of me is in fact a bad face day not a bad hair day so does that count?

And mother, posing naked to send photos to a boyfriend, as Joules says 'that was a bit fruity for those days'!

Lovely collage. The B&W ones are my favorites, and
the frizzy curly perm ones have FUN written all over them.
You mentioned that the water had to be warm to get you in it, Where was the surfing photo taken?
I see a strong resemblance to you and your daughters, they look like their Mum, beautiful!
Happy Monday!

beccy assumptions..how do you know I didn't have a bathing costume on!! Face hair who's worrying.

Christine it was a very hot summer at Harlyn Bay in Cornwall in the 70's.

haha to funny the Beccy pic!

Dear chrisb. Well, I'm like the 50th person to swing by, so I can only repeat what everyone else said - the photos are lovely! And i can't believe the family resemblance. The photo of beccy's bad face day is a little bit mean - totally what my mum would do to me hee hee (or what I'd do to her)!

 
At 24/4/07 10:18, Blogger ChrisB said...

little miss moi well it was the 'hairy' upper lip that did it for me!! her kids had fun doing this.

 
At 24/4/07 22:51, Blogger Tiger Lamb Girl said...

Nice pics! (note to self: go figure out how to do a collage like this).

 
At 24/4/07 22:58, Blogger ChrisB said...

TLG beccy does it with picasa

 
At 26/4/07 20:03, Blogger elena jane said...
