Those of you who have been following this blog (and if you haven't why not?) may notice a slight change to my appearance in these photos (no prizes for guessing what).
Before I get the inevitable comments, I will point out that I have not lost my marbles (not yet anyway) merely felt like changing my appearence and besides, I prefer the pic on the right of me without my goatee as it makes me look a few years younger.
I always get my hair cut every 6/8 weeks cos after that it starts to curl and then it really becomes a tangled mess and takes AGES to tidy up and I kind of made a promise to a very good friend that when I cut my hair this time I would shave the goatee off and see if I could live without it! So far so good but it feels strange not to have it there! and I've had to relearn how to do a complete facial shave (not easy for me to do as I have lived with a goatee since I was 17).
The only thing is that i've also had to point it out to my work mates because most of them wouldn't notice if I'd dyed my hair bright blue (!) and they've mostly liked it because of the above comment that it makes me look younger, personally it's a mixed blessing because although now I look younger it means I might get ID'ed when I go o the pub with my mates! Still a compliment is a compliment! :-)
The other thing that prompted the change was that after two years (finally!) i've managed to clear my final debt arrears and I now am completely debt free and H-A-P-P-Y! so now it's out with the old and in with the new!
