The beard growing went quite well.
I’m happy with the results, not least because it kept my face warm in the cold Norfolk breeze.
But in truth I probably need another week to “flesh” it out a bit more and create something I could live with.
The problem is I have a meeting tomorrow morning with a prospective new client and it looks too unkempt, even after a bit of judicious trimming.
So the beard will come off tonight. But it may return, one day.
