Grey skinhead, coming soon!!!

Following on from my post a couple of weeks ago "growing out my grey", I decided I should give the charity thing a go after all. People might not give as much as they would if I was cutting off some long tresses, but I will still look pretty daft for a while so it has to be worth something.

So I decided that at my next appointment  I'd have it shaved. Not bald, as I think there will be some entertainment value in the colour and the patchiness of it. So going for a number 2 or 3 (depending on how short I need to go to get rid of all my colour). I will have white on the sides and black at the front and back, I may well resemble a zebra! 

My appointment was booked for my birthday, but I decided yesterday to bring it forward. Partly because I had a bad hair day on Monday, but mostly because now I've said I'll do it I am anxious about it and want it over ASAP.

I am having a bit of a panic in the mid life crisis kind of way too. Am I really ready to say goodbye brown hair. I love the colour. People always think I'm younger than I am. They might soon be asking if I have a seniors card!!! 

Anyway, I guess one advantage of going public and trying to raise a bit of cash is that I have to do it now. And on the plus side, the sooner I do it, the sooner it will grow back to a decent length.

My chosen charity is Macmillan, who provide care and support for people and their families living with cancer. If you would like to make a donation it would be  greatly appreciated.
