I was enjoying the unseasonally warm weather this afternoon while walking to pick XY7 up from school.
The usual tracky dacks were ditched in favour of some 3/4 lengths ones and I was quite impressed with the pace I managed to whip up. Then I felt a strange sensation.
A delicate all-so-slight movement on my lower legs near my ankles. I laughed to myself when I realised it was the hair on my wintry unshaven legs being caught in the breeze.
Embarrasing I know, but admit it - we've all been guilty at one time or another of letting our depilatory routine go during winter. Strangely I let the legs go but not my underarms. And actually commonsense tells me women shouldn't be shaving (or removing hair any other way) from any bits of their body any time.
So, the question now is: do I shave or is there still more days of winter and covered-leg fashion ahead? It's not the sort of decision to rush. I think I'll wait and see what happens weather-wise between now and the weekend.
Maybe I have the wrong approach. Perhaps I'm too complacent after 10 years in coupledom?
Do you have a hirsute season of the year? Please share.
