The Exception to the Rule Friday Treat

IMG_3166

For years now I have had a sneaky suspicion that the mailman working my neighbourhood has a four days working "week", since with very very few exceptions my mailbox is never blessed with content on Fridays. It doesn't matter if I do expect mail, it hardly ever is delivered on Fridays.

So when I haphazardly take a peek in mailbox on Fridays - because hope is the last thing that goes - and actually find something I tend to get all giddy excited. Today was such a day. I had a look and inside was a padded envelope without a return address. Since I'm easy to please when it comes to content in my mailbox I found it very intriguing.

Inside the envelope was something grey and woolly... And as it turned out it was a very-Pia looking cute wool/cashmere cap from Aussie - the hair care range I wrote about was finally coming to Sweden - perfect for hiding those bad hair days (which I of course never have, unless I have a close encounter of the toy car kind). Oh I must have been a good girl, at my best behaviour, getting a cute cap and mail on a Friday.

In general I'm so not a fan of very obvious placed and attached labels, but I think this one is rather fun, not to mention the message being easy to relate too. Well at least for all those, excluding undersigned of course, who know what a bad hair day means.

The cap is in a limited edition of 150, and if you're Swedish and doesn't belong to the in-cap-crowd you can apparently enter a competition at the Bad Hairday site if you're willing and brave enough to upload a photo of yourself having a bad hair day. You can win a cap and products from Aussie.

Very cute cap. I looked at the site for posting bad hair. Those weren't very bad, you Swedes must have wonderful hair, if this is an example of bad hair.

Yeah I know, Jan, with very few exceptions I thought the hairs looked quite good too, I hope there'll be a really worthy winner in the end...

In general they say that Swedish/Nordic hair consists of lots of thin hairs (no matter hair colour), not the thicker ones you tend to see the further south in Europe you go, making it wispy and flat, especially this time of the cold year. I *kind of* know all about that, sigh...

What a cute hat Pia and indeed a worthy piece of mail! Sometimes, I just think I get bills day after day and not much else :(

Oh I know, Holler, I used to be a very avid letter weriter once and oh how lovely it was to get mail back then, these days the majority of mail are bills yes...:/
