Wow its a scary prospect that in just 20 days we will be driving to the airfield and jumping out of a plane in memory of the beautiful Matilda Mae.
A normal Saturday then!
But its not a normal Saturday because its been a long journey getting there filled with wonderful ideas and brainwaves as well as general begging and pleading from the team who have currently raised a total of £3,934.50! How amazing is that! But we aren’t stopping there! Oh no! Our goal is £5000! Tomorrow Me and Rachel have arranged a ladies night and have invited lots of local businesses as well as begged every woman we know to attend! We are hoping it will be a great night!
Last weekend I was insane enough to suggest that if we reached £3555 by the start of July I would dye my hair for a month pink or purple. Well guess what, thanks to some wonderful donations and Britmums collections we reached that £3555 and more! So I set about dying my lovely blonde highlights that cost a bomb every few months and I have coloured it! On Friday I used a pre-lightener on it to make sure it brought the colour out well. I’d never used home bleach on my hair before and tbh I was terrified! But it worked well, heres the before and after:
On Saturday afternoon (having read the leaflet in the morning which said hair past chin length needed two boxes, so off I trotted) my mum set to work at smothering my hair in purple! Now I say purple but to me the colour is more pink/purple I think! Either way its come out really well I think! I can’t quite get used to it at the moment, I keep catching a glimpse of myself in the mirror and being like, who the hells that? I feel like a teenager again! But if it gives me a talking point and a reason to talk about the skydive with even more people who might want to donate then I’m game! Here was the end result:
Now in other big hair related news this week the lovely Vicx posted in our team facebook group to say that when she reaches her target of £395 on her page HERE she will allow us to chop of her WAIST LENGTH HAIR at the airfield on 20th July! I couldn’t believe my eyes when she posted that! And not only that but she will be donating the hair to a charity who use it to make wigs for children with cancer so she’s going to be helping TWO good causes! I really admire Vicx for doing that because if I’d grown my hair out that long I don’t know that I could do that! So why not go and give her a few quid or text ‘MMSD63 £2’ to 70070 (You can replace the £2 with a figure of your choosing)
