Churchill’s famous quote after the allied victory at the second battle of El Alamein is below:

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

Over the next few weeks, the Two Blondes will face a time of change; we freely admit that neither of us like change, and you can be assured that the change that is to come is not of our making. After seven years of being Blonde work colleagues, my redundancy has finally caught up with me and I will have to leave in a few weeks time.

This change has been a long and painful time coming; but I at last feel ready to face it head on. I have to confess that I have had moments when I thought that Two Blondes might be forced to fold. I am glad to report though, that there have been many more moments when I knew that it wouldn’t.

You see, I have realised something; Blondness is not a job, it isn’t a lifestyle and it isn’t a creed. I am not quite sure exactly what it is; but I know that it isn’t over. It can’t be over, because we have too much to do yet. We have books to write and Bimbles to invent, we have youngsters to train and lives to change, we have a business to grow and success to earn, we have a moor to explore and mountains to climb, we have tears to cry and giggles to convulse us.

If Churchill was right, and this is the Blonde end of the Blonde beginning; then I have to say that it has been a very, very good beginning, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of it is going to be like.

Thanks Blonde One!
