Welcome to a new kind of tension

I’ve stared at this browser window for a while now and the creative juices aren’t just with me tonight. It seems the pendulum of acceptance – to use a slightly bonkers image – has swung the other way. P. is, as you may have read, on the chopping block at work and she’s really worried. I’m doing a 120mph at work and things seem to be piling up. My job is frankly, doing my head in. I really feel for P. but not having been laid off, I don’t know exactly what she’s going through. All I can do is listen. I hope that’s enough. I upset her last night by leaving with my face on and dress underneath my […]

A week of highs and lows.

I started this post on Wednesday night full of flipancy and froth that you’ve grown to expect on this blog. For those newbie readers, welcome to the war. 🙂 So, in the style of Channel 5’s Brass-Eye news, I will be presenting this blog in a good-week bad-week stylee. Good Week It’s the Easter break. Five days away from work. ****ing hey. Say ‘risk management’ time one more time. Say it again, I dare you. I double dare you MF. 😀 Earlier in the week H. picked up MaxFactor’s new mascara (whose exact product name escapes me right now). It’s fabby, but when you’re used to the standard types, like I am, you’ve got to watch that you don’t pile […]

Summer Loving?

What is it with the Grease jokes? Enough already! Well, we’ve got an all male ballet review, so I guess it’s just a matter of time before someone does a TG Grease. 🙂 Actually, dare I Google that? I’m sure someone’s got some Sandy pix somewhere. Summer Wardrobe You may have already read that P. and I were having a bit of a sale on Ebay. Nothing like getting folk to give you money for you old tatt. Anyway, P. asked if I wanted to keep anything before she flogged it on. There was a very nice yellow and red (no, stay with me) sleaveless shift dress… which I have kept and wore to Saturday’s Chams do in Leicester. I […]

Those summer niiiiights….

Out Well last week at Chams was rather fun. A new girl turned up (Hi Simone!) and some old faces too. Ummm.. not that all of us have old faces… 🙂 The new foundation worked a treat and H. asked to borrow it too. She seemed quite taken with it in fact. Women eh? Can’t leave trans things along can they? 😀 It’s Leicester this weekend (hopefully), so I shall be pondering what to wear during Friday’s management meeting. How are you supposed to pay attention when most meetings are soooo dull? Meetings, surely the devil’s work? 🙂 Surprise treat I’ve been wondering about getting my ears pierced for a little while now. A number of men (yes, I am […]

Keep ’em peeled

Police 5 [cue Mr Taylor’s voice over] Monday, 20th March in Nottingham. Where you in the vicinity of Boots the Chemist? Perhaps somewhere near the make-up counter? Did you see a young man in motor bike gear approach the No. 7 counter? Shamelessly he asked the young lady assistant for some help in buying new foundation. Not only did the young rascal engage in polite conversation, but he paid for the goods promptly and politely. If you saw him, call Trans-Spotters now. Remember, you could get a Community Action bonus. Slaptastic Yeah, I finally get around to buying some new slap and yes, I was very nervous. It’s odd really. It’s one thing to walk around a shopping centre dressed […]

Group socials and fashion

Chams Last week’s Chameleons was pretty good. There was a quiz, which to be honest, was rather tricky. Still, better to be challenged than to breeze through it eh? 🙂 That’s it for the next two weeks or so for me. The group move down to Derby and the next Leicester gig isn’t until next month. On the plus side, it does mean I can kick back on Thursdays/Saturday and there’s no mad rush around the house to get dolled up… only to un-doll yourself at 11…. and on a school night too. Adults eh? 🙂 Roses I spoke with one of the Admins the other night who explained in great depth some of the issues the forum faces. It […]
