From Grey to Orange

one-flat-grey-and-orange-stripe-with-from-grey-to-orange-text-on-top


I have been growing my hair, not to have long hair but to try to grow out the home hair dye and see what colour hair I really had.

When I was younger my hair was dark brown, then at twenty-one I spotted my first grey hairs. I hated not being a teenager anyway, this just proved I was getting old (oh the tribulations of youth!).

In my thirties I had acquired a grey streak in my hair, I tried to love it and go grey gracefully. Then at a Christmas party a colleague took lots of photos, there I was with my grey streak and looking so old. I did what anyone in that situation would do, I dyed it.

Thirty plus years later I am still dyeing my hair. I've gone from boring brown to gorgeous brunette, from ash brown (yuck) to medium caramel brown (still yuck) to glorious mahogany with red overtones, then as always, once I find a colour I love - the brand changes it

"NEW AND IMPROVED" no "WRONG! WRONG! WRONG!"

So I'm going to go grey.

Clapping For NHS - Why Bother?


It's 8pm on a Thursday, millions are under lockdown in the UK, but many leave their sofas, open their doors or windows and clap. Some hit saucepans with spoons, some play musical instruments, some just clap. But why? Why bother clapping for people who are just doing their job? Why bother?

The Reality Of Lockdown 2020





The reality of lock down in our house. I use the grandchildren as my excuse why the place is cluttered with toys and dirty fingerprints, while they are not here I would expect it to be clear of clutter and sparkling, when in fact it is messier than ever.

Lockdown fun - Painting Rocks


My first go at painting rocks

Lockdown is putting pressure on us all to find ways to entertain the kids while we work or cook or just have a few minutes to ourselves.

Painting rocks isn't just for children, adults can have fun too. This isn't a How To post more a Why Don't You Try This? If you do an internet search you will see so many gorgeous rocks, these are not easy to replicate, but it doesn't matter. Find a rock, give it a wash and dry, cover it in paint or nail varnish or stick things to it, then place them around your local area for others to find.

FREE Online resources - Coronavirus UK

FREE Online resources - Coronavirus UK


One thing you can say about us Brits - once we have our cupboards full of toilet rolls and pasta we are quite generous. Thousands have signed up to volunteer to help the NHS, and offer services to help the elderly, vulnerable and lonely.

DISCLAIMER - I have not been paid or rewarded in any way to include links

Here is a list of FREE online resources I have found as I have whiled my time away online, some are just for the duration of the coronavirus epidemic, some are regular free resources.

Please bookmark this page and keep coming back as I will add to it as I find new resources.

New additions will be highlighted in RED
