Have got jam in my hair. Suprisingly inconvenient.

Pooch receives a text of the title of this post and calls me:

P - what do you mean you've got jam in your hair?
Me - (pause) I'm not sure what else I can add. I've got jam in my hair.
P - how did you get jam in your hair?
Me - I was eating a jam doughnut and the wind changed.


Getting jam in your hair is not something that they tend to deal with in those survival type books. Chewing gum, possibly, but jam tends to be given a miss. To be honest I don't expect there are many situations when a 30 year old, sophisticated lady about town would end up with jam in her hair but nonetheless it happened to me. And it is very difficult. What are your options? Wiping with a tissue, which really just rubs it in. Sucking might get it out. But sucking your hair to get jam out doesn't sit well with the 'sophisticated lady' bit of the description above. In the end I just had to do my best and wait until I got home. But ultimately it was very inconvenient.

Note to self - do not eat jam doughnuts outside when it is windy.

Things I'd like to do/make:

Glad you liked the blog!

The jam doughnuts are amazingly fun to make. The rainbow cake used every clean dish I had in my house though! As a word of advice, if you're making the rainbow cake add less liquid to the batter. I didn't, and when I added the food colouring it make the mixture much runnier and it didn't raise terribly well

Thank you so much for the Noro sock yarn! It arrived safely last week but Yahoo keeps on crashing on me so I couldn't email!

Babywipes. NOT these pathetic pocket pack adult ones but good industrial strength babywipes. Mothers still carry them around when their kids are in their teens. You should have accosted any woman with small kids and a large changing bag and scrounged one.

That has to be the best post title I've seen in ages!

I was going to say the same as SpinningFishwife. Babywipes!! Although contrey to her response, I think I am in the denial stage that I still need them with a 4 and 5yr old...we went to a firework display on Saturday and Lou got candyfloss in her hair and the babywipes were at home.
