Not in the mood

Food Guilt Do you get this? You’re trying to watch your weight – well, in so much as you’re trying to cut down rather than watch is go up that is – yet realistically you’ve got to eat. Not eating makes the old metabolism go ‘Cripes! No food – absorb all calories!!’ and makes you ratty. So, I’m sat tucking into a small piece of birthday cake – see below – and my inner Gillian McKeith is saying ‘noooo!’ It’s a feckin’ birthday, you can’t not eat just a bit of cake. Yet, once you’ve eaten it, that’s it (unless you’re bulemic, but let’s not go there). Possibly then I should adhere to the advice about dieting of christmas – […]

Shopping

Q. What does every t-girl do when they’re feeling a bit miffed? A. Go shopping of course! So, rather than fight my gender conditioning (what does that mean? I have no idea!), I sloped off early from work and did a quick tour around Matalan and Next Clearance. Both stores had a big sale on, and you know what, there was nothing that caught my eye. Sometimes the sales are like that, you go in hoping to catch a bargain, but often it’s merely the collection of dodgy clothes they couldn’t sell earlier in the year at full price. In some stores, it seems they can’t shift them at a fraction of the price either. I went in hoping to […]

Ghosts of the past

How are you? Feeling good I trust. So… what’s been going on? Well, other than a complete lock down out outbound flights from the UK. Scary stuff indeed. I must confess to being somewhat confused by the plans of folk who perform these shocking deeds. While I understand that the complete lack of a voice, means that people will use any means to attract political attention – just what benefits are gained from killing innocent civilians? Perhaps we decadent Westerners are The Enemy and are legitmate targets. It saddens me to think so, as if you don’t get people ‘on your side’, just how to hope to influence those that make the decisions? I’m no history expert, but in recent […]

Attack of the Blonde Ubervixens

I had had mental block over a suitable title. I could have said writer’s block, but that would suggest I have literary asperations, rather than being just another blogger. 🙂 Anyhoo, what’s been going off on Planet Lynn? The UK – at least where we are – is roasting. I think it must have been 32 or nearabouts today. Far too warm for me, Little Man or H. I am definitly an autumn/winter person. Give me bracing walks through the frost covered countryside, a soft October sun and the the run up to Christmas. However, summertime does mean we can sit outside under the shade of the cherry tree with our feet in Little Man’s new paddling pool. Ahhh, bliss. […]

The Enemy Within?

The trans forums – as regular readers will know all about – are alive with talk about Sparkle. To those of you – if there are any *cough* straight readers reading – who aren’t in the know, Sparkle is one of the big trans events in the summer. Judging by the posts, it was a big success and those who attended had a blast. Good stuff and pats on the back to the organisers and sponsors who gave their time. In fact, while we’re at it, here’s a round of applause to those out there who organise events and socials during the rest of the year. Am I a kiss-ass? Maybe, but consider this, without these folk, most of us […]
