Happy 50th birthday John Barrowman  
It's already the next day in my part of the world but for John it is still March 11th, the day he turns 50. He's sharing his birthday celebrations with us via pictures and videos, so I thought this would be a good time to post my selfies from the Birmingham panto back in January. The background of the first was a bit overlit due to sunshine, so the next day we asked for the wall. Little did I know that the sunshine then was gone for the week and it was all grey and rain and cold!

PS: If you haven't seen his new hair color and style yet, go here and be shocked: https://twitter.com/JohnBarrowman/status/840699582451408896

For those who don't know, he has been grey for many many years and we all knew he colored his hair. So a few days ago he shaved it all off and now it is short and natural grey. I always said sooner or later he'll have to look his age. The transition comes as a shock so all of a sudden and we don't think he'll keep it, as he surely has to look young for TV, but I always liked a silver fox (looking at you, Richard Dean Anderson and Sean Pertwee) so I certainly wouldn't mind! I think if the hair was a bit longer it could look great. Maybe they could start to dye his temples grey at least or something...

Aww, super cute pics!

I don't mind the colour but the new length isn't doing it for me :D

Yeah, I guess we all agree there. I actually would like for him to grow it out and then judge, but it probably won't come to that. I think I could get used to it very quickly, if it is a nice hairstyle.
