Eleanor's had long hair for a long time now. Whenever she went to the hairdressers she always asked for a minimal amount cutting off so imagine my surprise when she told me she was having it cut short.
It turns out that she'd heard about The Little Princess Trust, a charity who provide real hair wigs free of charge to children and young adults up to the age of 24, who have sadly lost their own hair due to cancer treatment and other illnesses. She decided that she'd like to donate her hair to this organisation who help others less fortunate than herself.
Hair has to be at least 7 inches in length so I think Eleanor's ponytail ticks that box.
She actually had more than 17 inches cut off as once the ponytail had been cut she wanted it shorter still. I think her new shorter style suits her very much and Eleanor's very happy with it.
The Easter holidays finish for Eleanor on Sunday. We're having a girly day out in Leeds together today where we'll do some shopping and have some lunch, tomorrow night she's working at her little bar job that she has when she's home and then on Sunday she goes back to university. The house will be very quiet again.
