I'm glad to hear she's ok.
A friend was asking what people with children will do about telling them these things and if they'd sugar-coat it or be honest about the terrible things that sometimes happen.
My biggest issue would be where would you stop? As a kid, I instinctively knew that it was wrong for the media to focus on British victims or atrocities in predominantly-white English speaking countries so I wouldn't want to give the impression that those were the important ones. But then, you can't reasonably tell them about all acts of terrorism, either...
"Gather around, kids, it's time for our daily update on global atrocities!"
I think the tragic attack in Manchester last night is going to swing the election the Conservative's way. I can already see the next fortnight unfurl... Theresa May hopes to bury any memory of the dementia tax by going full-force on anti-terrorism, Corbyn will be pressed and pressed and pressed to comment on it and will give a reasoned reply which will then be touted as "too pacifist" and weak. The section of the public who voted for Brexit with Muslims in mind will then be riled up and a great number of votes that would have been for Labour will now go the other way.
Terrible news from Manchester last night. Children, too.
I feel sorry for my parents, too, because I know they are now going to worry sick the 5 days I'm away at Download Festival in a couple of weeks. I kinda hope they miss the part that it happened at a gig, but that's unlikely.
Hope everyone's loved ones are safe and accounted for.

Have you guys seen these fidget spinner things? Apparently they're like the huge craze among kids at the moment. My nephew is making loads of vids about them on his YouTube channel and my teacher cousin says they're the number one thing her students are distracted with in class.
Kids today! What's wrong with a stick and a bit of mud eh??!

Haha that sounds great for pleasure but I think the point of doing something for charity is it's supposed to be a challenge ;p
Guysssss, I got a letter from 2000AD today saying they'll keep my details on file. It's the first time I've had a reply that hasn't been "we like your work but we don't feel you're the right fit for us". It doesn't mean any work is guaranteed but it's a great place to start.
Although, in a way, it's typical that they accepted it because my NEW portfolio that I've done in the couple of months since is much better and I ASSUMED I'd get a rejection and then send the better one in when they re-open submissions in September.... luckily I have a few friends who work for 2000AD so I might ask them if they think I should resubmit later in the year, if I don't hear back.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
