After my last blog about wearing a bikini, I touched on the subject of waxing. Well due to unforeseen circumstances I have now been forced to address the subject a whole lot earlier than expected due to the fact that The Husband has arranged a nice weekend away.
Lucky Girl I hear you all say.....well yes I do feel lucky, however this hotel has the one thing I am not equipped for ......a swimming pool!!! And a swimming pool can mean only one thing ..... A Swimsuit which in turn needs a hair free zone.
I was hoping to have at least a few more months before having to tackle the Lady Garden but no, I have 2 days to get it tamed and looking nice.
My routine this evening will begin with the exfoliation process (not that it helps, but that's what it says on the packet to do).
My Kids will then be banished downstairs to avoid any lasting damage to their pure young minds. Once alone the waxing kit will be placed out on the bed like you see those doctors do on Casualty with all their equipment.
I will then strategically place the mirror at the end of the bed and the scene is set.
The main problem I now have is in 4 parts:-
1. I now have to move my stomach out of the way with one hand to see the above mentioned area.
2. Do I actually have the courage to lay the wax strip on in the first place.
3. Do I actually have the nerve to now pull the strip off.
4. The dog wont leave the room and is now watching with head tilted to one side looking at me very strangely.
Right I'm going to do it....I am going to do it now....ready......steady........1....2.....3.......
It is at this point the dog begins to howl in anticipation at something amazing happening, does he think I am going to throw a ball or does he actually understand whats about to happen.
This is pretty much how the whole experience goes, I count 1.2.3 the dog howls, I rip then scream obscenities. Now you can see why I send the kids downstairs.
On completion of the extermination of the Hairy Growler I will resemble a plucked chicken for several hours and may look slightly red. However it will all be worthwhile in the long run once I am on poolside in my one piece looking hairless.
Lets hope after all that the pools not shut !!!!
This blog has been written because of an hysterical conversation this morning on Twitter with 4 gorgeous Twitterettes, we covered waxing and tanning and then tanning and waxing. And not a mention of the petrol crisis in sight.
Thank you to them for being my inspiration today.
