I was invited to a White Ball last September. At Ramside Hall near Durham.
I am an ‘all in’ kind of guy. If I am going to do something I like to do it as well as I can.
So when Sergio told Lisa and I that we and every other guest had to wear all white to this 6 hour event, we set about getting outfits together.
For Lisa it was a dress and jacket and she looked great.
For me it was slightly more tricky. But as I’d decide to go all in I ended up with white Doc Martens, white jeans, white jacket, shirt and tie.
And white hair.
I think my mid-life crisis started when I was about 20. And this is probably just another stage I am going through.
I’d never dyed my hair in 50 years. So I thought, why not? I don’t have as much hair as I used to so it saved a few quid on hair dye. And a couple of whiskeys spurred me on to actually do it.
So here I am. Aged 50. With dyed white/yellow(ish) hair.
So when you saw me wearing a flat cap or a beanie last September… that’s why!
