Hmmm…. Where to start with this one? Well…. I guess it’s a bit tricky to write about trans stuff when … umm… you’re not actually doing any crossdressing 🙂 So it goes!
I believe it’s Sparkle this weekend and with the ‘meh’ vibe towards all things dressing up, I can’t say I’m overly fussed. Perhaps that’s a good job because a) the weather seems to be performing mini-monsoons; and b) it’s also midway through the Jones family birthday season (not mine should you ask). That does make it rather frantic on occasion. That said, all the effort of wrapping presents, making cakes (Ed: yes, eat your heart out Jane Asher! 😛 ) and visiting is worth it for the smile on the other person’s face.
When the sky wasn’t doing an impression of a power-shower, the Jones family have been out and about making the best of it. We had a long walk – not so easy on Little Miss’s legs as she’s pre-school; a family picnic and a day out in a local country park. Really, I can’t say that I had a particular fave per say. Each day out was special in its own way. Just being able to wander through the countryside and take in the glorious views was worth it.
Oh, that reminds me. Since the holiday, the Black Dog has been marked by its absence. Now that is something to be thankful for. There, and I said I didn’t have any news. 😉 I’ve got an appointment with the quack – sorry, the doctor – to review the happy tablets and with a bit of luck, I shall be out of the darkness and back into the light. I do feel a lot better, not happy, but just… me. Relaxed, unworried and without that pressing weight that depression seems to bring. I can’t say I’m sorry to see the back of that. 🙂
