Whispers from the wrong side

Hi, Yesterday was a Chams meeting and with the heat wave this week, I decided not to pack a bag. When I arrived and started to set the room up, the AC unit said it was 30C. Yikes. 🙂 I’m not sure what would be on the floor first: me or the makeup I’d applied 😁 The funny thing about turning up in bloke mode is…. sometimes, it makes me doubt myself, or more accurately, my authenticity. Am I just, well, making it all up? I think the truth of it is no, I’m not. I’ve been on this gender circus (no clown references please 😉) for most of my life and I think I’ve been at a point where […]

Fuzzy illogic

Hi, Given the rising temperatures in Dear Old Blighty and working from home, it’s been a case of shorts for the last few months. Regular readers will know of my slight issue around fuzzy pins, but you have to do what you can to make the best of things. It seems that my legs have decided to become openly bi-gender. The outside of them have gone bald, whereas the inside step remain slightly fuzzed. It’s slightly perplexing and thinking back to summers of yesteryear, a process that started on its own. I had a look online. Really just in case of might it be something serious (thankfully not, although maybe I should cut down on plutonium tea 🙂) and a […]

Small changes

Hi, Last night it was a Thursday night out to Chams and I found that I’d missed the routine. The latter not being run of the mill, but more a ritual in someway. One that leaves you feeling (and looking) different from before. It’s not quite the right metaphor, but on being able to dress as I do, it feels like the really good stretch. The one that leaves you feeling more awake and as if you’ve shaken off some tension you didn’t know you’d built up. One of the group has some transport issues and as their house isn’t massively out of the way, the evening started off differently, with me picking them up and having a chat on […]

Some summer sparkle

Hi, Last night was an evening out to Chams and date I say, I rather enjoyed it. It was great to be out for an evening to catch up with friends. I’m going to leave the post about the employment tribunal news for another day. What I’ll say right now, is it’s not great news, but I think it may not be as bad as some make out. Shall we move on to resisting by existing? 😉 I loved my new top (Roman Originals, for a change), although while the new white jeans were not heading south (unlike the black pair they’ve replaced), I may need to take them in a bit. Ah, the joys of being a little bit […]

A lot better than last week

Hi, What a difference a week makes, eh? A few days of beautiful sunshine, practicing some self care (tea breaks, looking out of the window, etc), and an evening out (Chams) have all helped to put the spring back in my step. All in time for the back holiday weekend as well. 🙂 In other news, our eldest has finished school. That’s it for him until his A level results and then he may be off to university. He’s currently out with his friends and I hope they are drinking responsibility. I mean, you wouldn’t want to spill it would you 😉 I got an early pass to Chams and that helped give me time to set the room up, […]
