I previously posted a pic of my incipient mo - grown for Movember.  Many people asked me why I was growing it, so I guess I achieved the purpose of raising awareness for prostate cancer.  But I was also touched that so many people also then said that they would sponsor me.  In the end I raised £100, which I shall donate appropriately.

Here's how it ended up:

like a cross between David Beckham, a retired WWII fighter pilot and roadkill.

But I was also growing it for Charlie.  And as soon as I shaved it off, sadly he passed away.  For some reason that affected me as much as his death. 


  1. Very well done on the amount you raised.

    I very much like your idea of doing one of Charlie's walks on his birthday next year. I don't know yet if I will be able to make it (work and all that), but keep me posted on plans, in case I am able to.

  2. I too am still having rough emotional times over Charlie. I am missing his always kind but sometimes humourous comments on my blog. I will certainly miss going cyber walking with him. Jamie was right....he showed us Derbyshire. If I ever win the lottery.......

    I honour you for doing the whole Movember campaign. Thank you for the donations to research that ends so many men's lives.

  3. Congratulations to you for the effort you have shown . I hope your friend Charlie is resting in peace now .

  4. I try to keep my nose hair a secret.
