Well, last Sunday morning I looked something like this,

But then at about 12.20, this happened . . .

Which wound up with me looking like this.

As you can probably tell, it was a very traumatic time for me. I think I'm actually still in shock over what I look like without the aid of hair or beard.

But it was for a good cause, building schools for the Dalit people in India (as I detailed here).

I must say a great thank you to every one who has sponsored me in this, I've succeeded in raising in excess of £1000 which is a great deal more than I had anticipated. I must also thank Chantal and Donna for doing the deed and actually cutting off my hair for me, and for relishing the task so much. Thanks also go to my wife for her continued support and the fact that she took quite a risk in encouraging me in this since she had never seen me without my beard, so didn't know what lay beneath.

I think it has taken me most of the week to come to terms with my new look (which some of the church kids said reminded them of Peter Pettigrew from Harry Potter) but I think we're both getting used to it now.

It has provided some good comedy moments at work this week, with people I've known for a while not recognising me until they've heard me laugh or have checked the 'new guys' name badge!
