Getting a haircut is a simple task for many, but for children with special needs it can be traumatic.The sound of hair driers, laying back in a basin and the act of putting on a cape can be an ordeal for some children.Jolly Locks is a mobile hairdressing service that visits homes to offer haircuts in a familiar space for children with intellectual, physical and sensory disabilities. (ABC News: Norman Hermant)
Haircuts often take place in different areas of the house to help the child feel settled before having their trim.”Some children are active and move around the house so we move them around the house if need be,” Ms Bhana said.”We’ve set up little picnics before to also help the little one settle as we try and be flexible.”Being in their home makes it a lot easier for the family and the child as they’re in their safe environment.”Ms Bhana said one of the hairdressers in the team had a child with autism which had helped the team have a better understanding of how to work with the children.Parents need haircuts tooMany parents who have children with special needs find it difficult to have their own hair cut.”We offer parents the opportunity to have their hair cut at home too,” Ms Bhana said.”For the parents it becomes very stress-free as they can have the children on their lap if need be or even on the floor.”Despite only starting the service last month, Ms Bhana said the need for it was there.”We’re fielding calls from other states seeing if there is local hairdressers near them, the community is really embracing it.” (Supplied: Jolly Locks)
Manager Sameera Bhana said the idea came about after speaking to a few families who had spoken about the difficulty of getting both their hair and their child’s hair cut.”I wanted to make the whole process easier, especially for children on the autism spectrum,” she said.”Being a mum with little boys that are very active I even know how that can be really challenging at times.”Learning about each childEach family is spoken to before the appointment to learn more about the child having their hair cut.”We find out if the child likes to be communicated with or doesn’t like to communicate with them,” Ms Bhana told ABC Radio Brisbane’s Rebecca Levingston.”Each child is different and we work with the parents to fully understand the child’s needs.”

“You see lots of older people, even if they don’t have children with them, they come into that space and they just sit there,” she said. “There’s a feeling that once you get to a certain age you stop playing and you start working — this [playground] is challenging that notion.”It seems to be working — Ms Mansfield said the oldest known person to have used the new park’s monkey bars was 87.She said she had spent “a fair bit of time” at the park watching how people used it since it opened two weeks ago. (Yarra Ranges Council: Anna Chisholm)
“There’s a lot of equipment in [the park] that is multifunctional, so depending on your age and your ability you can use it in very different ways,” Ms Mansfield said. Nature more important than plastic and colour”It looks a little less exciting than other play spaces,” Robyn Mansfield, council manager of built and active spaces, told ABC Radio Melbourne’s Jacinta Parsons. “One of the themes that really came through with the children was they had this very strong connection with nature, so they wanted that to be the dominant theme.”They didn’t want the bright colours, they didn’t want the plastic, but they wanted challenging things — things that they could climb, things that they could jump off.”Designed for young and oldIt may also surprise some parents to hear that children said they wanted to share the playground. “You can see that there’s joy there because they’re surrounded by play and activity and it feels like a nice space to be in, it feels part of the park.” Photo:
The playground has been designed with a picnic area in the middle. What would a playground look like if you asked children what they wanted before you built it?When it came time to revamp the playground at Lilydale Lake Park in Melbourne’s outer north east, the local council decided to find out. Yarra Ranges Council consulted with local primary school children, asking them what they wanted out of the redevelopment. “They actually wanted a space where their parents will play with them,” Ms Mansfield said.”Where their older siblings will want to play with them, where their grandparents will want to play with them.”The playground is part of a trend towards intergenerational play spaces; parks that cater to all ages, including adults and teenagers.

Video: 'How did he survive?': Blue-tongue alive thanks to CPR.
A volunteer picked ‘Dusty’ up and took him to Australia Zoo Animal Hospital where Mr Hall says it is “doing well”.”I got a call this morning; it’s on a nebuliser.””So there’s a chance it’s going to find its way back to my house. “It was covered in ants, so I got them off and put it in my hat in a warm spot in the car.”He handed the joey over to a carer in Agnes Waters but, sadly, it had internal injuries and died several days later. There was water coming out of the lizard’s mouth so the boys held it upside down to drain the water out of the reptile’s lungs. It might be a goer still’.”

Dale Hall, about to hand over the ‘patient’ to Wildlife Rescue Sunshine Coast. They told him how to warm the blue-tongue, now christened ‘Dusty’ after Mr Hall’s one-year-old son, and within a few hours it was hissing at him. They’re going to release it back in the backyard.”Blue-tongue ‘should be dead’Claire Smith from Wildlife Rescue Sunshine Coast said Dale Hall’s story was the most extraordinary she had ever heard. “I went to put it in the hole and it winked at me!” Mr Hall said.”I thought, ‘Hang on here. The incident did not deter Mr Hall who recently required a tetanus shot after being bitten while trying to help a stunned possum that had fallen from a tree. Caloundra resident Dale Hall returned home from walking his dog on Anzac Day morning to find a lifeless blue-tongue lizard at the bottom of his pool. Photo:

He held the reptile upside down and stroked its stomach as water continued to drain out of its mouth.Twenty minutes later there was no sign of life, so Mr Hall went to bury the lizard a second time.”I laid it in the hole and there was another twitch,” he said.”I could not believe this thing.” From there the lizard slowly improved to the point where Mr Hall called volunteers at Wildlife Rescue Sunshine Coast — a 24-hour animal rescue organisation.

So what did he do? (Supplied: Dale Hall)
A helping habitIt turns out that Mr Hall has a habit of helping wildlife.While working near Miriam Vale several years ago, he found a dead kangaroo on the road and recovered a hairless joey from its pouch. Pulled it out and gave it CPR, of course. But, it remained lifeless and after 10 to 15 minutes the boys handed it over to Mr Hall who dug a hole to bury it. Goner. “Jayden started pumping its chest a bit,” Mr Hall said. “Really, that blue-tongue should be dead,” she said.When their volunteer picked up the reptile from Mr Hall, she said “it had a really rattly chest because it had obviously got water in its lungs”.”If Dale hadn’t turned him upside down and got a lot of water out [the lizard] would have just continued to drown.” Ms Smith said she wished there were more quick-thinking people like Mr Hall and his nephews.”Hopefully this story will inspire other people to be a little bit more hands-on [with injured wildlife] and to ring us if they need help,” she said. “I saw the belly of this blue-tongue lizard on the bottom of the deepest end of the pool,” Mr Hall said.”I was like, ‘Oh no.

Kygo & Selena Gomez – It Ain’t Me

It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)
Who’s waking up to drive you home when you’re drunk and all alone?
It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)

It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)
I had a dream
Where you been or where you’re goin’
We were sipping whiskey neat
Who’s waking up to drive you home when you’re drunk and all alone?
But you know I’m gonna leave
We stopped seeing eye to eye

Summer nights and The Libertines
Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?
It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)

It ain’t me, no, no
Behind the worst of us
Nowhere’s high enough
I had a dream
You were staying out all night
And you’ll be on your own
We were back to seventeen
No, I don’t wanna know
Who’s gonna rock you when the sun won’t let you sleep?
Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?

It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)
It ain’t me, ah, ah
It ain’t me
But I know I won’t be home
It ain’t me
I’ll take with me
Somewhere along the lines
It ain’t me
It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)
It ain’t me, no, no
It ain’t me (The Bowery, whiskey neat, grateful, I’m so grateful)
Highest floor, The Bowery
Never growing up
And I had enough
The Polaroids and the memories
Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?

Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?
It ain’t me
Who’s gonna rock you when the sun won’t let you sleep?
It ain’t me, no, no
Who’s gonna walk you through the dark side of the morning?

Of Mice & Men – Unbreakable

I’ll never break
Can’t defeat me, though I’m bleeding
(Unbreakable)
Hoping I become undone
Memories and plans forgone
I’m unbreakable

Through the firestorm, I will remain
I’m not afraid
And I’m not afraid
[Chorus]
When it engulfs you, you will know
Can’t defeat me, though I’m bleeding
Every torch and pitchfork thrown
There are weapons in the sound
I will remain!
And you will know where you stand

Though I’m bending, I’ll never break
I’m unbreakable

(Unbreakable)
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid
Through the firestorm, I will remain
And you will know where you stand
And you will know where you stand
Only makes the fire grow
[Verse 1]
Throwing caution to the wind

I carry on regardless of the shape I’m in
Unbreakable
Through the firestorm, I will remain
And you will know where you stand
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid
[Bridge]

I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid

That I will not be overthrown
And I’m not afraid

Unbreakable
Go!
Though I’m bending, I’ll never break
[Pre-Chorus]
You feel the bitter sting as you fall to the ground
Pave the way for fear to spawn

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t defeat me, though I’m bleeding
[Verse 2]
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid
To find a vein to feast upon

Unbreakable
I’ll never break
I’m unbreakable
Unbreakable
Learning how to fight again
[Chorus]
[Chorus]
And they echo all around

[Outro]
[Pre-Chorus]
Though I’m bending, I’ll never break
Unbreakable

Chad Brownlee – Might As Well Be Me

Oh it might as well, might as well be me
Please stop looking for love
‘Coz I’ll be the only one

It might as well be me

And I’m holding you tight
‘Coz she ain’t coming back
Don’t let my love pass you by
Love can feel so wrong I wanna tell you
It might as well be me
To take all the hurt, to take all the pain
Oh it might as well, might as well be me
To take all the hurt and pain inside
When your days and nights get colder
No matter where you go, I’ll be there
The wasted nights you sat and dreamed of her
My sweet love don’t say goodbye
Our love can reach higher, higher than a mountain
Let the sound of my voice soothe you inside
It might as well, might as well, might as well be me
‘Coz baby this love could be right
You can hold me in your arms tonight
No more lonely nights I’m with you
To take all the hurt and pain inside
Just keep up a heart, don’t fight it
(Looking for love)
It might as well be me
And I’ll be the only one
Stop living a lie

‘Coz I’ll make you see, that this love is right
She only used you and abused you
Oh, it might as well, might as well be me

(I’ll be right there)
You can think of me, you can imagine what’s right
(It might as well be me)
Me
Yeah, be me
It might as well be me
It might as well be me
(Please stop)
(Higher than a mountain)
Let the sound of my voice soothe you inside

Please don’t take my love for granted

Si lo he perdido todo
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Todavía te espero
Siente el bajo que va subiendo
No me dejes en esta soledad te pido

Nena te digo
Ya no aguanto más
Ni el día ni la hora
Mientras me quede aliento (Mintras me quede aliento)
Huyendo del pasado
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Te juro que te pienso
Siente el bajo que va subiendo
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
La radio
Súbeme la radio
Quiero darte calor
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Siente el bajo que va subiendo

Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Yo no te miento
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
No se vivir sin ti
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Y yo me voy muriendo (Y yo me voy muriendo)

No sé vivir sin ti
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Vuelve conmigo
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Súbeme la radio
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Si tú me llamas, te juro que bailamos
Si llega la noche y tú no contestas
Sabes bien que te quiero

Ya no aguanto más

Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Todavía te espero
Siente el bajo que va subiendo

Ya no me importa nada
Cada madrugada
El tiempo pasa lento
Solo una vez más

Quiero verte ya, oh
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Súbeme la radio que esta es mi canción
Romper este silencio (Romper este silencio)
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol

Siente el bajo que va subiendo
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
De borrar nuestra historia
Quiero verte ya
A su salud bebiendo (A su salud bebiendo)
Siente el bajo que va subiendo
Tráeme el alcohol que quita el dolor
Yo no te miento
Sabes bien que te quiero
Me has dejado en las sombras
Súbeme

Vivo pasando las noches en vela
No encuentro ningún modo
En busca de tu amor

Tráeme el alcohol
Siente el bajo que va subiendo
Solo te estoy pidiendo (Solo te estoy pidiendo)
Te juro me quedo esperando en tu puerta
Ando loco y desesperado
Tráeme el alcohol
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Hoy vamos a juntar la luna y el sol
Siente el bajo que va subiendo
Y sigo cantando bajo la luna llena
Hago el mejor intento

I am a distant voice
That’s just patterned out
Tell these motherfuckers everything I’m seeing
I am a distant voice

I’m inside your head
[Chorus: 2D, Rag’n’Bone Man & Ray BLK]
And I’m over it
Yo, new black king, New York dream
Mirror
Cold, cold, cold
Cold, cold, cold
I just wanna play, have it my way
That’s just patterned out
Why are you mad at me?
Or you could just freak with me

Cold, cold, cold
I am over it
I am a broken screen
My world’s darker than the young black dream
[Chorus: 2D & Rag’n’Bone Man]
Cold, cold, cold
That’s just patterned out
I’m a mad routine
Don’t ever look at me like that
I am a mirror
I’m here by the fire, I’m waiting
I’m a mad routine
I’m a broken screen
Back where the city’s cold
I hear that about you, baby
You can be mad at me, tell me I was born to quit
Of the first black prince of a new white king
They can’t fuck with me, yeah, yeah, Ojay
I was checking gold

Make a bunch of fucking rules, then tell ’em obey
Said it again, let the numbers roll
Cold, cold, cold
Cold, cold, cold
[Verse 2: Ray BLK & 2D]
First name, government? No, him, I slay
I’m inside your head
I am a mirror

I am a mirror
Tell me I was born to quit, I was checking gold
It’s just in the daylight, no
[Outro: Ray BLK & 2D]
I am over it
Uh, obey, obey, obey
You should just freak with me, freak with me
And you don’t know me
[Chorus: 2D, Rag’n’Bone Man & Ray BLK]
And I’m over it
Cold, cold, cold
It’s back when the city’s cold
And you don’t know me

Don’t ever look at me like that

New black king, oh
And let the numbers roll
New black king, oh

And you don’t know me
And I’m over it
It’s just in the daylight, no
I am a distant voice
It’s just in the days I’ve known
I am a mirror
It’s just in the days I’ve known
I am a mirror

Life is like a movie
I ain’t tryna fuck with you
Racks on racks

Offset – Monday

You ain’t even know she a thot, she a trick (thot)

You know what I’m saying?
Customise my whip, Xzibit (Xzibit)
Ride like the president, bulletproof
Fucking on a thot every monday (thot)
Welcome to the game, welcome to the game

Roger Waters – Smell The Roses

Close your eyes and pray this wind don’t change
[Interlude]
This is the room where they make the explosives
Wake up
Where they put your name on the bomb
And scratch out words like right and wrong
Another kid didn’t make the grade

Run your greasy fingers through her hair
Here’s where they bury the buts and the ifs
Wake up
Wake up and smell the phosphorus
Girl you know you couldn’t get much higher
At the bottom of the stair
[Chorus 3]
[Verse 1]
A hint of danger in his eye
[Chorus 2]
Just a line in the captain’s log
Wake up and smell the roses
And the chimney’s broken in the sky
[Chorus 4]
Throw a photo on the funeral pyre
There’s a mad dog pulling at his chain
Yeah, little less cash in the stash in the cupboard
Wake up and smell the bacon

This is the life that you have taken

Come on honey it’s real money
Wake up and smell the roses
Nothing but gold in the chimney smoke
Money, honey
Yeah, now we can forget the threat she poses
[Verse 3]
Wake up

[Verse 2]
Just a whine from a resident dog
Come on honey it’s a fair trade
[Chorus 1]
This is the room we keep a human heir

Nothing but hope at the end of the road
There’s nothing but screams in the field of dreams
Don’t ask don’t tell it couldn’t be lost for us
Wake up

Alarm bells raging round his brain
