How’s you? Good I hope. Me? Oh, I’m good…. Glad it’s the weekend that’s for sure. This week has gone by in a flash. I’m pretty sure I can remember Monday and after that it’s a blur of events. So, what’s been going off?
To start with, I got a year older… at least physically. That was nice. 🙂 Jelly, ice-cream and a sing-song around a cake. All good stuff. Cards, family time and some lovely presents.
My t-powers [/irony] seem to be building back up, so I did what most trans folk do: I went shopping. I managed to find two new pairs of fabby new heels – although I’ve yet to give them a road test (Ed: that’d be an interesting Top Gear). I had my eye on trying some skinny jeans, but as the fashion mantra suggests, if you were old enough to wear it the first time around: think twice. Well, I tried them on because I’ve seen a few ladies about town looking very cool in them. However, they’re not to be for me. To start with, most places I went into didn’t do a long enough leg. Those that did, well, they didn’t do much to flatter my shape (such that it is). Maybe I’ll try some bootlegs next time around. Talking of clothes that don’t flatter – high waisted trousers are (back) in.
Besides a few things to wear I popped into Boots to pick up one of those make-up DVDs they’ve been giving away. There was also some nice stay-put lippy + sparkly gloss from Maybelline, so I picked up one of those too. Seeing as the DVDs were free, I picked up two spare ones in case anyone from NottsChams wants a copy.
On a slight sad note, my computer has just karked it (so this post is thanks to the very old 333 running Linux). Righto, best get the screwdriver and the backup disks out.
