On my work days I get up at 6am and out of the house for 0630. Gives me time to shower, feed the cats, a quick cup of coffee and maybe a slice of toast. I have it down to a fine art. I have a beard, generally kept relatively short and have had it for 3 years or so. I let it get longish then use my beard trimmer to take it back to a number 4 or so when it gets untidy, so every couple of weeks. I went to bed last night put my trimmer onto charge for a trim this morning. I decided this morning to put it on a number 3. I trimmed the right side of my face and as I was about to start my chin the trimmer snagged the hair and stopped. Tried again, same thing. Took the head off and could see that a plastic lug had broken inside and was not immediately fixable, if at all. So here I am with half of my head with an unkempt longish beard and part of one side short. I looked a bugger. Nothing else I could do other than shave it all off. Now that is no easy feat with a blade. It certainly took some hacking. It was more brushing it than cutting. Eventually finished. Face like a baby’s bum. It is now approaching 0630, go down, feed the cats, no time to drink a coffee so made one to go with my nespresso which has a milk frothing unit attached. Set that off whilst I gave kotaro more food. I had forgot to move the milk spout out so the hot milk is on the worktop and not in the cup. Bollocks. Now need to clean. Leave the house 20 mins late, head off down the M6 to Stafford. M6 is closed between 14 and 13. Luckily google found me a relatively quick alternate route. My colleague who I’m working with is not so lucky. She was further behind on the M6 and is expected to arrive, according to her Google Maps, at around 10 am. Looks like I’ll have a large class to myself initially. How is your day?
