Shameless cut and paste

Firstly I must say thanks to Jo for letting her recycle the questions from her blog You can read her original article here. How long have you been dressing up as a girl? On and off – for quite a long time. My earliest recollection would be when I was at primary school. What’s that? About 8 or 10 or so? I don’t know why but I remember getting ready for bed and seeing a pair of mum’s tights fresh out of the laundry. I can remember wondering what the felt like and reaching for them… Ahhh, so began a drift to the Dark Side. 🙂 After that, wanting to dress up or being interested in girls’ – and later […]

Walking, talking and (of course) shopping

Today’s been very interesting. I had the day off to go fix the car – that’s very rock and roll isn’t it? Well, if I’d driven it into a swimming pool, yes, I guess it would be. However, this time, it was merely a service.  But that did mean I had the day off 🙂 So what did I get up to? Firstly I got a fantastic new skirt from Matalan – a bargain at only 10 quid. I’m very pleased with that. I also got some earrings which – in a Blue Peter stylee – I’ve tweaked to fit to my small clip-on hoops. After that it was off home to try on my purchases and get dolled up. You can’t […]

Killer Heels

Despite being a miserable old mare sometimes, I must confess to enjoying the xmas season so far. Sure, we’ve got a sh**load of wrapping to do, but on the plus side, P. and I have been to the works’ xmas do and have just about finished the christmas shopping. The xmas do was a blast. We both had a very nice time dancing the night away and the food and company was excellent. Sometimes I wonder if this is the best bit about xmas. Meeting up with people you’ve not seen for ages and sharing the good times. You can stick your high street queues and novelty markets. 🙂 Well, nearly… The xmas party season is the time for some […]

Panic over…

Amazing what a good night’s sleep can do for people isn’t it? This morning’s blog was rather scary wasn’t it? End of the world, fire & brimstone, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! 🙂 (PS: Name the film). Things have thankfully calmed down a little and we had a more sedate conversation. The going out remains a bit of a no-no, which is a shame, but compromise is better than divorce. Other news? The shopping was very good although I was a little bit miffed by the staff in Hot Hair in Nottm. Perhaps the conversation they were having was more interesting than helping a paying customer. 🙂 Ah well, I drifted off to take a look at what […]

The Terrible Truth or the Beautiful Lie?

Two posts in a week? Shock horror! 🙂 In time honored tradition I’m going to make it a good news / bad news situation. 🙂 First the good news… the good news is? Well, I still have my family and P. is at least talking to me after last night’s tears. This is at least a good sign. Other good news is, that it’s shopping day today. Time to go and indulge in some retail therapy for P’s xmas presents. The bad news? Ahh well, we had That Conversation. You know the one, it even gets capitalization. I’ll be honest (which is a rare thing) but you can afford to be straight with complete strangers can’t you. I’m not going […]
