12 Inches

Every few years I get bored and crave a change...  with my hair...  In general I always grow it out and have long long hair.  But when I was 17 I cut the whole lot off into a very short hairstyle that was quite fun... then grew it out and again about 6 years ago I got the urge and chopped the lot off to just over 1" all round... Soooo not surprisingly the last few months I have been contemplating a change again... and then on Wednesday I saw this.  You can imagine what happened next...

I got on the phone, made an appointment with Emma at the hairdressers, spoke to a friend about babysitting my girls for a couple of hours, and 24 hours later...

Gone - the lot of it.  Not quite to an inch - I still wanted my children to have a shot at recognising me : )  But 12 inches gone and tomorrow winging it's way to the Pantene Beautiful Lenghts Donation Programme to be turned into a wig for cancer patients.  It feels great that what I no longer want or need is hopefully going to be used to make someone who is suffering feel a little bit brighter : )

I don't really do photo's of myself in general so finding a before was a bit tricky...  Cat was a little surprised as she suspected somehow, and my husband was too upon arriving home the next day after 3 weeks overseas!

I am enjoying the new "do" for now, and am really hopeful my 12 inches will make someone else feel gorgeous :)

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
