What a week!
We have had the lurgy at The Glade HQ, so between that and world events this week, it has not been the most carefree of times to say the least!!!
But as usually happens in these situations, my children amaze me.
For example, on Wednesday evening during dinner, the youngest asked if she could have her hair cut into a ‘Pixie Cut’.
My immediate response was to say no, never, because I am paranoid about head lice and that mane needs to be tied up.
However, she went on to explain that she wanted to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust.
This is a charity that provides wigs for children suffering from hair loss.
She has decided that she will try to get sponsorships too.
I am so incredibly proud of her as are her friends, to be fair we are all a little bit amazed.
After all this is the tweenager who cried last time 2 inches was cut off her hair.
Therefore, if she is prepared to make this sacrifice for others, it gives me hope for the world in general!
So, to my five for this week;
This beautiful head of thick, lush hair will, on the 22nd December, be gifted to Little Princess Trust.
I would not be at all surprised if this is the hair style she comes away with, Audrey wears it so well but will a 12 year old?
But as the little Miss said herself, she knows her hair will grow back, others are not as fortunate.
In a complete change of tone, last Saturday we went on a tour of the Mersey Tunnel.
The Tunnel has featured heavily in my life and I, once more, drive through it twice a day.
I will write a post about it for next week, but I have had a reoccurring nightmare about being stuck in there since I was about 7.
It was a fascinating morning, I was amazed at times and have definitely come away reassured.
On Monday, I posted about having a lovely day!
This week, I printed off the instructions and framed them, they now adorn my newly painted kitchen wall.
Please feel free to print them off yourself if you would like, I don’t think LifeHack.org would mind for a moment.
I am delighted with the result.
Finally, I have been making some Christmas plans this week.
I have still not baked the cake, this will have to happen this weekend.
But when we popped to a local shop to buy a gift for a charity collection, the youngest picked this owl decoration for our tree.
We think he is really cute and very Glade appropriate because, we share our trees with a very noisy owl or two.
That is it for this week. We have been trying to recover our mojo and do our bit, some more than others – I am looking at you Miss Glade xxx
We have plans to take my 84 year old Mother in Law out to the Museum of Liverpool this weekend, if it isn’t too windy, she keeps us all entertained.
Have a lovely lovely day xx
