Reportage From The Groves



I’ve had a fancy to try my hand at vlogging for some time. Ages in fact. With this in mind, and the fact that I’m going to be in front of the camera, I took a long, hard look at myself in the mirror. My roots need re-doing, my eyebrows need plucking but without doubt it was my moustache that required most urgent attention. On went the Jolen Creme Bleach and fifteen minutes later, job done. Except it wasn’t. In place of the dark hairs, there is now a bristling Glo-In-The-Dark Hairy caterpillar that appears to have firmly latched itself on to my top lip. To add insult to injury, every time I open my mouth the neon critter takes on a life of its own. Vanity dictates that I either murder the damn thing by waxing it off, or, wait until the Glow subsides to a less conspicuous shade.

I’ve chosen the latter (No way can I be upstaged by a hirsute caterpillar) so I’m afraid that it is going to be at least a week or so until I pluck up the courage for my first attempt (and possibly last) at vlogging. In the meantime there is plenty to be getting on with here and I can start planning little videos of things that you might like to see. Of course Colin and Wilma can’t wait to take you on a virtual walk and I’m looking forward to showing you how our new project is taking shape. If you have any questions that you’d like to ask me then please do send me an email. My address can be found in Contact Me on this page. Just one thing, whatever you do, Β don’t ask me about me about superfluous hair.
