Glamorous octogenarian

This weekend sees my mam reaching her 80th birthday.
This morning I brought her up to the local hairdressers, where she gets her hair done every Saturday.
See it’s not off the ground I licked it!
When she was suitably coiffured the staff had a lovely surprise for her…….a birthday cake. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so excited. All the Blue Rinse Brigade sang a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday”.




At the risk of sounding like Pollyanna or Mother Theresa it really is small acts of kindness that make life worth living.

  2. The A8's standard adaptive air suspension system works well at absorbing bumps and potholes, but a demonstration of the A8's soon to be available AI active suspension system uses next level tech to smooth out the ride. Working in conjunction with road scanners and the car's 48 volt architecture, a small electric motor is capable of extending the suspension when a pothole is detected, enabling the car to lift slightly and then glide over the imperfection. The technology works up to around 37 mph, and manages to greatly minimize the body movement as the wheels negotiate the bump or dip. (Michael Kors Bag Brown And Black)

    Once you choose the time of year, you can focus on the day of the week. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are generally the cheapest days of the week to fly, and trips without a Saturday night at the destination can sometimes be more expensive. If you really want to cut costs, schedule a red eye flight. (Michael Kors Python Bag Black)
