Hair yesterday and none today!

So the day finally came….

No backing out!

I washed and groomed my hair to ensure it was in the best condition possible, then separated it into pigtails and plaited it up ready for the final count down šŸ™‚

I put ribbon bows on the top because well why not !

It will be the last time in a while I’ll be dressing my hair šŸ˜‰

Then set off too the festivities at Stealth black belt academy for the annual queens birthday party, during which we where treated to a fantastic display by the little dragons some even receiving their black belts !

With the most amazing buffet provided by all the families who go to the academy.

Followed by a mini tournament run by the junior black belts and featuring two of my kids.

It was brilliantly run and such a great effort by such a great bunch of role models for the club.

After a long afternoon it was my turn to have my head shaved.

I didn’t need to be stressed as the whole afternoon everyone especially the many stealth mums, had pretty much been on tender hooks on my behalf, I really did feel for them.

Weirdly enough I wasn’t nervous or stressed out just ready for it to happen.

So after a big hug from good friends
It was time to get started!

First up my pigtails were auctioned to five business owners who pledged fifty pounds each to cut them off !

So the fun began!

The sixth pigtail I promised my son could cut off as he needed to feel a little involved !

He seemed to take an awful lot of pleasure in it :/

Words have been had hopefully it’s a one time thing !

Not sure I fancy a phone call to say he massacred some poor girls hair at school !!!

Anyway on to the next part ….

Then it was the turn on the clippers

All was going well but boy did it take along time !

My youngest daughter was getting quite upset and didn’t like this part at all šŸ˜¦ (hair and appearance is a big thing for a 14yr old too) but she resolved to get through it and I was very proud of her for it.

When it was over I received a lot of support and praise but Craig stepped in and offered to have his own head shaved and that of his best mate if the crowd raised an extra four hundred pounds between them !

Guess what they did too !

A huge thank you goes out to Craig and Paul for being such fabulous good sports and helping to raise that much more!

So proud to be part of the stealth family and so grateful for all their support !

Many thanks to all of those that attended and a huge thank you to everyone who donated !
