My dad - Bill Bullivant - has an amazing hairdo and beard, he looks just like Father Christmas and regularly gets kids coming up to him or pointing him out to their parents saying things like 'it's Father Christmas'. Dad is a member of Waterbeach Community Players and has done shows/pantos/radio plays etc. for over 20 years now but his latest role as a gentleman, in a play set in the 1700's, meant his hair and beard have had to have the chop. So yesterday he popped round and I did the honors and cut his hair before he scooted off to Cambridge Corpus Christi Playroom for rehersals. Dad says he'll grow it all back ready for the Father Christmas season!

I had a brilliant time at Ramsey 1940's Weekend again this year. I went for the first time last year and can't wait until it's on again next year. It is such a great event with loads of people in costume and loads to see and do. I was there doing 1940's makeovers for the weekend. I took my dad along for the Saturday and we stayed there all day and for the big Hanger Dance in the evening. Russell's dad and his partner teach Lindy Hop so we nearly always bump into each other at these period events. Russ and I gave the Lambeth Walk a go on the Saturday night and when I told Charlotte (8yrs) about that she surprised me by signing the whole Lambeth Walk song to me - apparently they had learnt it at school when they studied World War II last term!
