Hurtling Towards Sixty

Growing older graciously... not a chance! After many years of being perfectly happy not dyeing my hair, enjoying the freedom of not spending hours at the hairdresser, of not constantly having the roots touched up, not spending a small fortune etc. etc. I decided to celebrate my approaching sixtieth birthday by having all remaining coulour bleached out and a lavender tint put in.

 
I always hated hairdresser visits until I met Tom, but not only does he do a great cut he's also great fun. So visits to the hairdresser are something I enjoy rather than dread. We've been plotting this colour change for several months and I finally took the plunge this week... and I love it! Another thing ticked off my sixty by sixty list.


I doubt it will be something I maintain for long but I'll enjoy it for now. And while I'm growing older disgracefully I might as well show you my outfit for my moonwalk next week. It's not often (if ever) that I wear so little in public but it is all for a good cause. Just keep your fingers crossed that it stays warm and dry overnight on Saturday!
And if any one fancies sponsoring me the link is here:


Meanwhile I have finished another birthday cake (layers of lemon drizzle) this weekend and have another two to make this week... keeps me out of mischief I guess.


I'll be back soon to tell you all about the walk if not before!

  10. Your cake looks amazing! It's my favourite flavour too, lucky birthday person! The shade of lavender is such a great idea, it suits you very well. I don't have a 'by sixty' list, maybe I should start one? I only have 2 years left! xx

  12. Not so much 'hurtling towards 60' as 'running at it headlong and taking it by the scruff of the neck'!!!! You rock girl and you still have the body to show off that outfit plus you're now one of those Ladies in Lavender. Brilliant!
