To beard or not to beard?

That is the question, as it turns out. My husband is sporting a beard (grown pre-Becks, he likes to remind me) and I just can’t decide if I like it or not. One minute he looks like a manly bearded man, beautiful like a grizzly bear. The next he’s more like a wierd looking vagrant who’s wandered into our kitchen, helping himself to coffee. I was always told never to trust a man with a beard. But it was my husband who told me that. Pre-beard, obviously.

This week’s white in the fridge:
Ogio Pinot Grigio 2008, £8.99 down to £4.49, Tesco
Love this wine for what it is: fresh, uncomplicated Pinot Grigio, made to help me get over a shitty day (five nappies before 9am so I mean it in the literal sense).

This week’s red on the side:
Ogio Primitivo 2008, £8.99 down to £4.49, Tesco
This wine is a bit of a show off. All upfront bramble fruits and spice, long on flavour and extremely good value. Drink with spag bol and a handsome beardy man.

Peace out, beard or no beard x

    My Vinomaker sports a beard. He muses out loud sometimes about shaving it off. I must admit I would be horrified…I have only ever seen photographs of him sans beard and I would be afraid that I wouldn't recognise my husband if he shaved off his facial hair after almost 11 years of being together. Leave well enough alone.

    Great wine vatrietal choices this week…Pinot gris and Zinfandel…yum!

    I've had a beard ever since I hit puberty, thanks to mother. You wouldn't recognise me either without it…..

    Must dash, or i'll be late for my laser hair removal appointment.

    Bye xx

    Vinogirl – glad you like the choices, the red is just so perfect for this time of year. I've decided I might grow to love the beard (ha ha) so he's keeping it on for now…x

    arobinson – we should have bought shares in jolen, we'd be rich beyond our wildest dreams! x
