Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly.

So what have we been up to this week? Mike is generally well, the regime has built up over the last few months and he finds himself a bit tired, without a sense of taste, and generally numb all over. He spoke to one of the haematology doctors and it was decided to continue as there is only one Velcade dose left.

Yesterday (a day late) we got out the next hair colour. Again people were given a chance to choose via FB, between green and lilac, lilac won. No one wanted green. 

After showing him the rainbow unicorn My Little Pony, Mike INSISTED on having stripes. Luckily there was plenty of pink in the bottle from last week. 

I just went for the lilac. I'm not sure if it is my hair, but the colour just doesn't seem to be as intense as it is on Mike's.

Next week we have a choice of two different blues:

Peacock Blue or Bubblegum Blue.

What do you think? You can tell us in the comments here or pop over to the JustGiving page.

Candy girl.

After a very brief poll on FB (we got 5 replies) it was decided, with 2 votes that our first hair dye colour should be........drum roll............PINK!

Cotton candy?

The first stage

Mike's eventual look!?!
The aim eventually is to look like rainbow unicorn My Little Ponies.

Thank you to everyone who has already donated, it is very much appreciated.

Remember the ultimate aim is: BARE63!

Blank canvas.

I forgot to upload photos of us both after the peroxide, so here they are.

Mike looking super white.

Me with some orange!

As you can see, Mike isn't as good as me when it comes to applying bleach........ Still, orange is the colour for Myeloma UK, so I fit in with the reason for bleaching in the first place. As I mentioned earlier, we are going to try and raise funds via JustGiving over the next few months. 8 weeks of crazy colours followed by the head shave just before Mike goes in for his SCT. What we would like people to do is go over to the JustGiving page, make a donation and leave a message to say what colour we should use next.

Here we go.

With nine weeks to go until Mike's SCT we have started the count down to BARE63. You all remember my fund raising post don't you? Just in case you don't you can find my original blog entry here

There has been a slight change in plan, instead of raising £2,500 then shaving my hair off, I am definitely shaving my head on January 10th 2017!!!! May be people will take pity on me once I am naked and cold :) 

Last Thursday we (I) initiated stage 1.

A pixie cut. The cut is dual purpose, it will allow my ears to acclimatise to the cold weather and at the same time make it much easier to dye. 

The second part of my fundraising is that we will be dying our hair a rainbow of shades. Yes I did say we. Either today or tomorrow Mike and I will be getting out the peroxide and bleaching our hair. Stay tuned for further updates!!!!!
