Laura has been the star of the show since she embarked on her hairdressing career in August. Super organised, she keeps us all in check because we can be a messy bunch when we are slicing our way through a hair cut.
Laura loves walking (on a dry day), catching up with her favourite TV series and posting her ubiquitous selfies in her spare time, thats when she is not in the shops or soaking in the bath with a fruity cider.
On holiday Laura can be found twirling her way round a wee dancefloor in a bar in Turkey like an exotic flamingo, flapping her wings and fending off the posse of waiters and market traders who have been added to her list of faceyb friends!
Well things are coming to a close and last minute assessments are being finalised and ticked off. Gifts are being exchanged and the employers are muttering about how many students they want to take on whilst the youngsters are looking forward to their end of course trip to Nicco Park. It’s an afternoon of thrills and spills and they deserve a wee treat after all the effort they have put in in the last 6 weeks. We were mighty relieved to find it was a fraction of the price of Alton Towers thank goodness. We decided this would be the perfect time to say goodbye rather than going back to the village with them and said our sad farewells at the exit before they piled onto the school bus. I had thought that I would be able to handle all the emotion knowing they have a few more life skills and have a path to follow but it was hard.
The dreary weather, back to work blues not forgetting the post christmas come down can take its toll so make a clean sweep for 2014
