I'm a hair pin hoarder.
I don't mean I have a gazillion hair pins.
I mean I horde them as though another bobby pin will never come my way again.
I'll go to use some bobby pins and I will be struggling to find ones that match.
Struggling to find pins that aren't all scratched up or missing their little nobby bits so they don't scratch your head.
I keep them all - you know - for just in case. For three and and a half bob I could replace the lot.
So why do I think they're really expensive?
Why did I even buy the el-cheapo nasty $2 shop ones that are so flimsy they're useless?
So why do I think I have to keep using the decade old ones that don't even match my current hair colour?
I decided this was silly thinking and I've purchased new ones.
