New Hair

with 13 comments

Well, actually it is old hair newly styled. Charity and I played hairdressers again on Monday and this was the result. It was an attempt to deal with the 2 weeks of being a ginger that had preceded. The original plan was to do more colouring and to add a red layer to the hair do. However, in order to remove the afore mentioned ‘ginger do’ we had to leave the peroxide on for a long time. Too long. My head was very sore. So, we decided it was probably best to not take the further step of going rock-star red. I myself am pleased with the result. Hope you like it too.

ps I am not gingerphobic it was just that it isn’t for me. Some of my best friends are ginger.

My lovely husband Mark has set up his website. Which, though still a work in progress, is well worth a look at. Some fantastic photos there. Lovely. xxx

Amnesty International – Greetings Cards

with 2 comments

Amnesty International launched their
greetings card campaign at the beginning of the month and it runs until 31 Jan 2006.

‘It brings people across the world in touch with each other in a simple way – sending a card with a friendly greeting or message of solidarity to someone who is in danger or unjustly imprisoned. These are prisoners of conscience, people under sentence of death, human rights defenders under threat because of their work, and others at risk.

The campaign offers hope and encouragement to the people who receive our cards. It can also help bring about change – the impression their international mail makes on police, prison staff or political authorities can help keep them safe.’
from the Amnesty International publicity for the campaign

Last week was prisions week and in chapel on wed in chapel I wrote some intercessions about prisioners of conscience. As part of this I put together 30 greetings cards for people at Trinity to send. Most seem to have been taken and sent on. My thanks go to Bob Dickinson for drawing my attention to the campaign last year.

Birthday Thanks

with one comment

I share these with you because we are a strange but lovely family and these illustrate this perfectly!

Anyway, I wanted to report on my birthday. It was a great day. I had 3 parties – one with Mark and Eva; one with my pastoral group; and one at our house with some ‘new’ friends. All of which were a great blessing. I really am very blessed. I have only lived in this city since August and already I have have some great people to hang out with. It was a special day. Thanks

ps I got an ipod full of excellent toons (from Mark), some lovely perfume (from my Mum), a pingu t-shirt from Claire, chochies, candles, cards and cash. Not that the material things are important to me (much!!!).
