My beautiful friend decided to shave her hair off for charity. She has raised over £1500 (including gift aid) for Macmillan and for Mind, and she will send her hair off to Little Princess Trust. It was really amazing to see how many people contributed.
She made a day of it and had a bbq in the garden and drinks and nibbles and a bit of Formula 1, and then the big head shave was at 3pm. After that all the comedy wigs came out, everyone went to stroke her head and we all had a drink and a dance around the garden.
During the evening I got introduced to this wonder of a cocktail:
The Pink Panther
1 pt Gin
1 pt Lemonade
1 pt Cranberry juice
5 slices of fresh lime
- Mix together. Ice optional, as are mint leaves.
I'm not entirely sure that this is actually a Pink Panther, but whatever it was it was pretty scrummy, and it was bright pink. We got through a lot of them, it was glorious.
