Little victories


Moods eh? They’re funny things. They come and go like the weather. Mostly pleasant, with the occasional shower and rare storm. Well, unless you’ve been knocking back the caffeine or South American Marching Powder… but then, you’ve only yourself to blame 🙂

So the week swung around to Thursday and it was the first Chameleons’ night of the year. Oddly, as I drove home on the Wednesday, I wondered: did I really want to go?

How odd. In other time, the idea of a long gap between meetings has had me using distraction techniques (long walks, watching films with Wee Man, playing computer games or a spot of writing). Yet, perhaps due to the particularly good Christmas break, I was very much in a take it or leave mood. Still, I find it helps to put the best foot forward and give it a spin. After all, you don’t always know when your next foray into being fabulous will fall.

George, our latest trans-man visitor joined us for the first time and it was good to see Tanya pop back for her second visit. Sadly, Sandi wasn’t well (get well soon, Mrs!) and Val was elsewhere due to work. See, real life gets in the way doesn’t it? 🙂

Thanks to Diane
for the snap.

With the winter chill very much in effect, I’d decided to go for biker boots and a dress. Question is: which one? Trusty New Look wrap dress or cosy knitted dress? Well, after risking a new make of razor blade this morning, my chest look liked I’d be massaged by Wolverine. :- So, something higher necked was in order! 🙂 Well, I guess I’ll be sticking with my usual brand from now on. Lessons learned eh? When testing a new blade, don’t do it on the day.

Mind you, I did manage to get my make-up to a state which I was happy with. Plus, I think I may be getting the hang of false eyelashes. I did forget to pack my earrings, which felt a bit odd, as having had the acceptance from the Ever Lovely Mrs J, it’s nice to wear something pretty rather than bloke standard studs. Still, better than not having the choice eh?

I caught up with a few folk and Pat’s been kind enough to organise a visit from a local clothes shop. Hopefully that’ll go down well. Given that I’m working from home today, I’ve managed to back-up & upgrade the group’s website, ring Boots, finish off some of the funding correspondence and updated the LiON (another community registration site).

Well, I’m feeling like I’ve been quite productive…. although not necessarily for who pays my wages. Still, I’d only be sat in meetings absorbing oxygen and biscuits. Maybe this is better 😉 Must put some more ‘good news’ notes in the memory jar for next year.

Take care,
