Wig Hunting

It is now Wednesday morning and the crows and ravens have been fed rather noisily with leftovers from last nights dinner.

On Monday, Leslie and I went to St Enoch’s Square to find a wig for when Leslies hair falls out. It was a somewhat sureal yet, interesting experience.

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a very enlightening experience. While we waited (we were early) we flicked through loads of magazines looking at styles and colours. We had a right laugh when some of the older styles attacked our eyes…….. Yes you probably remember them from Dallas or Dysentry……. all that was missing was a man in a ten gallon hat and some very dodgy shoulder pads.

The funny thing was the colour, when Leslie tried a blonde type colour on, it just worked. We had thought of reddy colours or even a darker brown, but this blonde  shade just worked. All that we needed was the length. The short ones just made Leslie look like a ball with a wig on, as they got longer it looked a bit better until TDAH!! a much longer one worked perfectly.

So, here it is, complete with mad pose from her ladyship.

Leslie in typical mad pose.......oh yes, and the wig.


So, come join us on our exploration of the world of chemotherapy.

Today we go to the Beatson for the pre-chemo blood test, if all is well, its needle time tomorrow.

If this strikes a chord with you or you just want help us raise as much as we can for Macmillan, please visit the donate page or go to my justgiving page at
