We had to call in the fourth emer­gency ser­vice the other day– no, it wasn’t the coast­guard nor moun­tain res­cue, it wasn’t even the AA. It was Mrs T’s hair­dresser and the emer­gency was Tod­dler­na­tor the Ter­ri­ble’s hair.

Mrs T had put up with one too many “isn’t she lovely’’ com­ments and de­cided to take the scis­sors to his locks.

I say scis­sors but judg­ing by the state of his hair it was prob­a­bly pink­ing shears. She had rang me in a panic. “Send me pic­tures,’’ I said think­ing she was over-re­act­ing and it was no worse than a bit of an un­even fringe.’’

She wasn’t. The pic­tures were from four an­gles and it looked like the poor lit­tle sod had four dif­fer­ent hair­cuts (you can see the mul­let and the bob above).

She had al­ready got an “emer­gency’’ ap­point­ment with her hair­dresser, who thank­fully res­cued the sit­u­a­tion.

She did warn Mrs T: “If you go near his hair again I’ll charge you dou­ble!’’
