So, I saw on PP that Donna was selling a stock Disco Boogie. DB was on my list of dream girls. I had seen a few gorgeous ones on Flickr with hair cuts which made them look like me (even John said so). I talked to my Mum, and she and my Dad said they would buy her for me as a very early (like 6 months early!) birthday and Christmas present. And yesterday she arrived! This was her hair after a spa treatment :D
Beautiful, but just not me. So I decided to cut it myself. My sister had warned me that a graduated bob was a very difficult cut, but me being impatient decided to try it myself. Well that was one of the hardest and most stressful think I've ever done - I will NEVER be cutting Blythe hair again LOL. After hours and hours of cutting. drying, trying to straighten etc this was the result-
Yay, a mini-me! John said its funny how much she looks like me :)

We are going to my cousin's wedding on Saturday (I'm doing the reception photography), and may have to take her along.

I feel kinda guilty that she is my favourite when she only just arrived, but...... can't help it! I love the contemplative look of the EBL. Reminds me of me :)

The girls love their new pullcharms from EmbellishYourself. They're so cute!

Another new addition :)

Mei and Satski were a bit nervous about meeting the new girl - they had seen her photos, and knew she was a bit special. We were all stunned when she came out of the box - her hair is just beautiful. I think they were all a bit wary of each other until they all blinked, and realised they all had purple eyechips. They decided to be friends forever. I named the the Purple-Eye Gang (after Horrid Henry's Purple-Hand Gang!).
I think she'll be happy with us. We named her Sakura as she has cherry-blossom coloured hair.

Pilchard got jealous of all the attention the girls were getting, and jumped up on the bench to get in the photo!

First trip

On Thursday, the long awaited parcel arrived! And I jumped around the house like a crazy person shouting 'she came she came she came' with the cat giving me That Look he has of telling you he thinks you're totally insane :) Mei thought it might be a present for her (she's been getting a lot of them recently). And in a way it was - a sister for her!
This is Mei and Satski meeting for the first time. I had 2 assignments to finish and hand in for Friday, so was really good, and didn't get her out of the box until I got back from handing them in.

Once she was out and had her hair washed, the fun really began. The weather was beautiful today, and we needed to let off some steam after a long-running thing with utility suppliers (aka the b******s) came to a head, so we went for a walk on the Malvern Hills.

Satski and Mei got some beautiful hats in the post today from Sandy Byrne, so she just had to show her's off (and it saved her hair from the wind). We stopped for a few photo ops on the way up and down. This is Satski wondering if she can do a bit of prospectin'.

On top of the trig point on the top of the Worcestershire Beacon - highest point for a loooonnnngggg way!
This is probably my favourite photo from today - tweaked the levels a little, and her eyes are so vibrant.
Love my new girl (but will always love Mei of course - she gets jealous!).
