Coffee and toast and I’m back from the dead.

Yeh gads it’s cold in dear old Blighty. I’ve got my leggings (transtastic!) on under my jeans. Jeans are too cold to wear this time of year otherwise 🙂 Talking of jeans, how did folk managed to pull off the idea that skinny jeans are this season’s must have? I must say I’m quite confused. For *years* – and maybe that’s why – I’ve read/been told that bootleg cut trousers are more flatting for women. So… what’s being flogged like no tommorrow? Drainpipe jeans that you have to pour yourself into. What’s the line: “If you’re old enough to have worn them the first time around, you’re too old to can’t wear them again” 🙂 Weather-wise I’ve been spoilt recently […]

Domesticated

Somehow today just didn’t get started properly. On the plus side I did manage a bit of dressing up while I did some housework. The hoovering and the washing gets sorted, and I get an hour en femme. Seems like a fair trade. Talking of luck, sometimes fortune shines on you doesn’t it. P. will be out on a girls day & night out later this month. As the saying goes, “while the cat’s away…” So, time to take your time putting your face on and trying on a few outfits. With regards to the leg waxing dilema: I chickened out. To wax or not to wax? In the end I opted for family peace as I think it would […]

Down time

Not much girly stuff happening this week. I tried out some new make-up but as every rechargeable battery in the house was flat, taking a snap was a little tricky. 🙂 I was hoping to half and half picture of my face. One side made up, one not. Sure, it’s a cliche, but why fight it? I already own high heels and a skirt of questionable length 🙂 P. (wife) bought some new make-up this week. She’d been deliberating for a while and needed a helpful push to part with the cash. Did I have an agenda? Truthfully? No, it’s been *ages* since P. had any new stuff as she considers it a really luxury item. So, thanks to QVC […]

There’s F in fireworks

Not much happening on the TG front this week. I’ve been away with my family for a very enjoyable holiday oop North. P. got some new boots while we were away. She said she was after some flat heeled knee boots in a biker style. Eventually we found some that were a) a bit biker-esq and b) not too tight / too loose on her calves. What made me laugh was once she’d found them she didn’t like them. She then clapped eyes on some round toed boots with a dainty heel and small platform. They were gorge! So… she left the store a very happy bunny. S. found himself some high heels to try on while Mummy pulled her […]

I can’t get no sleep…

Last night I had trouble sleeping. I’m not sure if it’s the hour long nap I had in the afternoon, the idea that I’m visable (with a blog) or this month’s big obsession is running my mind like a treadmill. So what’s this month’s obsession? Well, it’s not going out en femme (which is a rush all in itself and would be nice). I’m seriously thinking about a) waxing my legs or b) using my epilator on them. I’m away on business for a week (as I start a new job soon) and the fun and games surrounding this is beginning to pile up. Part of me knows that cross dressing – at least for me – is a good […]
