It’s funny you live with someone for 18 years and you realise sometimes how little you know about them.

A while back me and my son barricaded the doors and closed out the world for a few days. During that splendid isolation I started to grow my first ever beard. I’ve got no idea how my late partner would have reacted to it. Beards never really came up in our chats.

I think secretly I hoped that the facial hair would transform my Homer Simpson looks into something more resembling George Clooney. Fat chance!

Still one person did say it made me look a bit like the great actor Brian Blessed. That’s a distinct improvement, so the beard stays for a while longer.
