We love to visit our local parks, it's sad the trash people leave, my children and I gather what we see, it brings us joy to see nature without the junk!!

@peaceful-passer - Hi 😊 That’s a wonderful thing to do with your family, when I have kids I’d like to do the same. I want to invest in one of those grabber sticks so I can get to the things in the bushes without getting my hair all stuck 😂

TashTash: Hi all 👋🏻 Hope everyone is good, I have loads of daily photos to upload at some point (think I’ll dig out my laptop to do it on though!) I’m now at around 7 1/2 months, and things are getting a lot more knotty! I have one congo (not huge thankfully!) because I neglected to separate for a while, but I actually really like it! My sections like to spiral around each other and these two just fused in the middle, but like I said, the root section is not huge so I’m not too worried about it. I have quite a few bumps and loops popping up, loads of loose hair still, and very little change at the front of my head, but I know that’s the last to lock up anyway. It’s grown approximately 6 inches and has filled out a lot which I think is the trapped natural shed hair making everything more mane-like! I tried a few loose cross-cross hair wraps on the dreads that like to suck all surrounding hair in because I was worried they were going to become massive sections, and I liked the wraps, it kept everything somewhat separated when things got mad busy for me. I’m still having to wear my hair up a lot for work, for safety unfortunately so there’s no real getting around that, but I’m letting it all loose as soon as possible to give it as much ‘down-time’ as I can. As for other updates, Billy the orphaned kitten (now around 9 months old) had a run in with either another cat, a bird, or possibly a twig, but whatever it was damaged his eye quite badly and it had to be removed 😢 so he’s now affectionately known as ‘One-eyed Will’ not that I think he even notices that he only has one eye now, it hasn’t really changed him at all! I’m still practicing a mostly vegetarian diet (still eating fish and seafood around twice a week) and I’m working on cutting it out completely. I’m also looking at cutting down on rubbish (any tips are welcome and fully encouraged!) I’m trying and mostly failing to grow my own fruits and vegetables, I have limited space and no green thumb! So far the only promising plant I have is six pea sprouts, but that’s six more than I’ve ever had before, so it’s a win? 🤷🏻‍♀️ And I’m trying to make ‘Rubbish Walks’ an at least monthly thing in my local woods (picking up litter while walking, and disposing of it properly, recycling what I can) it’s actually quite fun! And I was on a short girls holiday recently, near the Welsh coast, where we found a stall that did ‘Rubbish Beach Walks’ and work to keep the oceans rubbish free, they made things out of the rubbish they collected and I brought a lovely bowl made out of discarded rope! My next green project (when I have the funds) is a composting dog waste bin, because our current solution to our GSD Luther’s ‘leavings’ is unfortunately the general waste bin (we’ve tried flushing it and it clogs the toilet, yes they are that big 🤮) and no, he will absolutely not ‘go’ during a walk, nowhere but our small garden! We took him camping with us for a week and he was distraught, he held it for two days and would then only do it right outside the tent! 🤦🏻‍♀️ Anyway, I’m rambling a bit now, oh! I’m also weight training again when I have the time, me and a friend are entering a competition in September I think, so that’s exciting! Ok, I’m done now, hope you’re all awesome, tell me what’s going on with you 😊

Hi dread Folks...been a bit distracted lately...  became a Grandad 2 weeks ago, lovely little fella called Jack... had to tie hair and beard back so could hold him without getting hair in his face.  He is usually to busy sleeping to notice anyway....

@tashtash  can relate that big congo too,  Ive got one right at the back (Derek) who was my first and most troublesome dread to form, he seems to suck in surrounding hairs trying to make the roots end too large, hence i have to thin/separate base hairs often...  

I've been trying "Grown your own/" too my peas survived slug and bird attack only to eventually succumb to blackbirds uprooting them just as they were big enough to pick - phooey!  aw well try again....   Apples seem to be ok though and have a few gallons of cider in the back of my homemade cider in my shed maturing nicely.    H

Love GSDs too (despite having been bitten by a few)  shared a house with two years ago and they were noisy, but lovely big softys with me and owners. Does your "Luther" bark a lot when people call around?  it seems to be a trait of most GSDs i've met.

Ooops,  realise this isn't posted in quite the right subject area...how about a self sufficency/grow your own section?

@gazzunger-the-grey congrats on the grandbabe!💕

I'd love any section that covers the topic of growing. All mine are houseplants, but I'm hoping next year to do some gardening too now that every plant i look at doesn't die.😂

Hi people 👋🏻 so it’s been a while! Hope everyone is still good, my hair has changed so much, but unfortunately I stopped taking photos last April, I think, because my depression hit kinda hard and I stopped doing most things! I’m 1 year and 4 ish months in to my freeform/natural (?) thing and things went from tangled loopy sections to something that resembles dreads, practically overnight at around the 13 month mark. I have no idea what I did differently but it seemed to just happen all of a sudden! Last time I counted I had 75 dreads and a few strands of loose hair here and there! It’s weird because people I’ve seen regularly since I started this whole thing have only now noticed that my hair is different, it’s gone from people being too polite to say my hair looks messy to people asking when I got dreads done 😂 it’s also all of a sudden too big for my bobbles so I’m looking at making a spiral thingy this weekend! I’ve just washed my hair with a soap bar for the first time and it was ... weird 🤔 and microfibre towels are a game changer, another first!

Anyway, let me know what’s going on with all of you, have great days/evenings/whatever 😊

You’re gorgeous!

Bobbles you mean hair ties?
My daughter crocheted me a hair tie! It works really well!! I love that my hair doesn’t have to be bound tightly for it to stay up anymore, I really like that I have something loose but not too loose to hold it all

Aww, thanks ☺️ Yes, hair ties, I was using those plastic-y spiral ones because I used to break the elastic ones on my loose hair before! A crochet one is a good idea, I love crochet 🧶 I know what you mean about it just staying put even when it’s only loosely tied up, it feels nicer! How long have you been dreading for now?

Just checked your page out, you’re gorgeous too lady and your hair is amazing! Seen that you’re nearly at the one year mark, congrats! it’s a lovely colour too, got some real depth and richness, mine looks a bit dull at times maybe a rinse of some sort, I think I read that rosemary is good for brunettes? ... I’m wandering again 😂 anyway, I love your hair, I’m looking forward to mine getting longer, I think my shrinkage has matched my growth!
