The month of Movember

At last I can now safely remove the itchy, annoying and highly embarrassing facial hair that I have modelled for the last 30 days in aid of The Prostate Cancer charity – in the guise of ‘Movember‘.

I’ve not intentionally grown a moustache since being a scruffy long haired student back in the early 80’s and I can now remember the reasons why!! Even the novelty of not having to shave properly has worn off and I’m now chuffed to have my chops back feeling as smooth as a baby’s backside – well almost.

Even more importantly, Mrs DDWT has now agreed to get up close and personal with me. It appears as though my ‘mo’ was akin to rubbing up against a wire brush! Charming eh.

But before I gave it the best a man can get Gillette seeing-to, I had to do one last round of photo’s to remind myself of how hideous I looked. So here goes…

Well I hope you had as much fun looking at that lot as my family had whilst taking the photographs!

In all seriousness though, it’s been great fun growing a ‘mo’ and most importantly its been for a very worthy cause. As the time of writing I’d raised £95 for The Prostate Cancer charity – so if you’d like to donate, you can still do so by visiting my Movember page.
