Big Smiles :)

I have had probably the best weekend that I've had for ages and ages.  Alton Towers was brilliant and they really looked after us and the Chocolate room was really cool. There was a really cute teddy waiting for me with a load of balloons! It had loads of chocolate hidden and every time you walked in, it had all these sound effect things, like been on a steam train.  We had a good meal in Flambo at night and Cristina looked after us with lots of smiles :)
They even gave us fastpass tickets so we didn't have to queue which was good. I really did try to do a big ride.  I nearly did 'Air', but I was a bit unsure so mum said she'd go on and wave at me and I could think about it.  Uncle Gary stayed with me and mum took Rhys and Sammi with her, but they were gone for ages and the ride had stopped but we didn't know why. When they arrived back, guess what?  They'd got on the ride and it had clamped their legs and then it had tilted them so they were hanging face down and then it broke down.  So they'd been stuck in it, hanging there for about 20 minutes.  Mum thought it was hilarious, but it put me off.  I loved the mine train and we all laughed cos it was quiet and they gave us extra goes and every time we went through, we shouted 'Choo choo' (cos that's what the man had to say but he was laughing with us).  So thank you Alton Towers, I had a really brilliant brilliant time x

On the way back from Alton Towers, we called in to see Leigh and Rachel at Emma Bridgewater and we met some new people too.  It was really good to see them and they were having a coffee morning downstairs, so we bought some cakes and I painted a new bowl for my cereal with Mabel on it (mum smashed my last one by accident). I got some bits in the shop for presents and I bought a chocolate labrador mug (we already have a yellow one and a black one). I've got another reason to try and get to my 16th birthday, because I decided that I'd like a pottery party there for me and my friends.  Mum said that we can book a hotel down there so it's not too much on one day.

And then, my weekend got better because I went to the Andrew Collinge Salon in Liverpool to get my wig. We were really late because the M6 had an accident on it and the traffic had stopped but we phoned and Amy was really nice and said not to worry.  I got to meet Andrew who was a really nice man and he introduced me to Olivia who was doing my hair.  It was really weird because you have to put it on so that it can be cut into a style on your head.  I was watching myself in the mirror and I just couldn't stop smiling. Gemma did mums hair and mum was so happy and it looks really nice.  So I'm going to put a photo on here of me with my new hair, because I love my new hair. Thank you to everyone at Andrew Collinge and the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Me and my new hair
We were staying in Liverpool for the whole weekend as my treat and I got to go to Pizza Express for my dinner and on Saturday I found a dress for next Friday.  I was really worried about finding something to wear but I'm quite happy and I think I look okay in it.  I haven't found any shoes yet but I'm looking.  I know I don't have to worry, but I'm a bit nervous about the awards night. We are going to London on Thursday night so that I don't have to travel on the day of the awards and we might get to stay an extra night and do a show on the Saturday night.

Yesterday, mum did a workshop thing at the Apple shop in Liverpool and she started to put her photos in order but she has got thousands of them so it was a bit of a mess. She's trying to do a video of me but she is finding it hard to work her new laptop. But they were really good and then today she had a proper lesson and she said it was really good and that she thinks she gets it now. So I'm in my bedroom doing this and Dad is doing work stuff (for a change NOT) and Mum is in the study doing her photo thing.  So I've got to say a special thank you to Chris and everyone in the Apple store who helped my mum.

So I've had a really nice weekend :) I better go now cos we're going to go and meet my sister from her school trip. I can't wait to see her and here about her adventures.

  6. Alice - So happy to hear about your amazing weekend at Alton Towers! I'm with you about being stuck upside down on a ride - no thank you.

    Love the new hair. You look especially posh. Rest up and let us all know about this upcoming weekend too. I will be thinking about you and Milly and hoping you have a great time being "celebrities" :)

    P.S. I love chocolate, too!

  8. So glad you had a wonderful time! You look so pretty. That hair color and length is so chic. And um..if I were stuck upside down for even five minutes I would be freaking out. I can't imagine. I have four children and I'd probably embarrass each one of them with my shrieking :)

  9. Your new hair is gorgeous!
    I don't think I would like to be hanging upside down for 20 minutes at all. I would've passed on that one too. It sounds like you've been very busy! I'm a bit tired just reading about it.

  12. Wow, that's so scary that they were stuck upside down on the ride! I think if that had happened to me I would have been put off going to amusement parks for the rest of my life! How did they rescue them? Did the fire brigade have to come?!

    I love your wig, it looks great. :)

  22. Sounds like a fantastic weekend, glad you all enjoyed it. Your new hair looks really good too. I remember my Mum getting a new wig, which looked really strange until my auntie cut it to suit Mum and then it was perfect! A few years ago my sister and I had our heads shaved for charity, we raised money for cancer research and donated our hair to a charity called Locks of Love to be made into wigs for children - my sisters hair was 25" long but mine was only 17". Hopefully, those wigs looked as pretty as yours does xxxxxx

  23. Alton Towers sounded fab, but like you I might have chose to leave the big rides form others!
    Give your Mum lots of encouragement, before you know it she will be a whizz, making all sorts of videos for you to share.

  36. Hi Alice,

    I'm so glad you had such a great weekend! I don't know what the "Alton Towers" are, so I will have to Google that. But anything named "the chocolate room" must be fantastic!
    Your hair looks beautiful too!

    Take care,

  37. Love the new look! Went on a coaster with my Mom and while we were waiting to unload they had us hanging upside down. Mom got sick and all I could think was, "Thanks goodness it didn't happen during the ride. We all would have worn it!"

    After hearing how happy you are with the new wig, I am even more excited about donating my hair. I've been taking the time to enjoy it long and loose since it will be gone on November 11th.

    Thanks for your inspiration! I don't care whether you win an award or not, YOU INSPIRED ME!!!

  44. Sounds as if you had a fantastic weekend!! You look lovely, such a pretty color and cut. Your pottery party sounds like it will be great fun!

    I sent my husband to Emma Bridgewater in London this past week as he was there for business. I asked him to buy me your mug. He was told it was only sold online. When I checked online it was currently sold out! So I guess I'll have to wait.

    Take care!

  48. Rock Star! You look gorgeous! I love that hair. You know this is the truth, good wigs look better than plain old hair. They just do. I love the color, the length, the cut, you look amazing.
    Alton Towers sounds like a blast and a half.
    Your mom is brave to have been amused by hanging upside down in the air in a broken ride. I would have been hysterical. Not the funny one either.
    Can't wait to see photo of you in your new dress.
    What an honor.
    What good you are spreading wherever you travel.
    You are the best.

    Your new hair is very cute! I also have red hair - well, in fact it becomes red because I go to the salon once and a while :)
