Thanks to Grant (as usual) for this great link: Pepys' Diary, presented as a daily weblog, as Pepys would no doubt have intended. Visit daily!

From Monday, March 13:
"Up betimes, this being the first morning of my promise upon a forfeite not to lie in bed a quarter of an hour after my first waking . . . This day my wife begun to wear light-coloured locks, quite white almost, which, though it makes her look very pretty, yet not being natural, vexes me, that I will not have her wear them."
