“Words like violence,
Break the silence,
Come crashing in,
Into my little world”

Hello again dear reader, To blog, or not to blog? That is the question. Whether tis best to STFU, or to prattle on, ensnaring the zeroes and ones of Google’s storage….. Shall we go with blog then? Larks, it doesn’t seem long since I was last here, bashing away at the keys, hoping that some semblance of wit and order would descend. So, I have, as you may have gathered from the last post and MS Paint epic, been away. Not, ‘been away’ as in Her Majesty’s Pleasure (Ed: for our American readers – in jail!), nor locking away in the funny farm either. Although, Lord knows that can’t be far away. 🙂 No, holiday it was and a family […]

“Don’t like to work, I just like to dream”

Hello one and all, So we’re the second week through the World Sports Day competitions. Team GB have done very well – or so I’ve heard via the news and chats with the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones. You know me and sport, walking is about my limit – maybe a bit of cycling – but watching it? Meh. Not that I’m not dead chuffed that our athletes have tried really hard. Anyways, with the sport being on and Wee Man’s new found enjoyment of computer games, I’ve been catching up on my reading. I think I’ve finished off three books and the reading’s been a pleasant break from the usual activities of web surfing, Facebooking, blogging and all round techno […]

“Don’t step out of this house if that’s the clothes you’re gonna wear!”

Hi, Cross out another week on the life calendar, I’m almost done. Well, done for the working week, not done for life – that would be a bit of a downer…. I mean, I’ve got a holiday booked later in the year. 😉 The start of the week was quiet as I was working from home. Part of that was to catch up with things I couldn’t do in the office. Simply too many distractions there and being at home, well, sometimes it’s just easier. I suppose in days of yore, I’d have been all dressed up and tapping away at the keys quite merrily (oo, office chic!). This time though – and with Chams around the corner – it […]

“Wow! (Shout out loud),
At the gay bar”

Hiya, As I type it is unseasonably warm. Talk about a late summer! I’ve blogged about my enjoyment of the autumn months once before and much as the clear blue skies are nice, it is too hot for me. By the time it cools down, it’s pitch black. Still, the weather is at least calm, so no puddles to splash through or wind to blow your syrup in umpteen directions. Last time around, I mentioned the possiblity of a night out. It has been ages since I’ve been out and about, so I was really looking forward to it. Luckily for little old me (Ed: yes, the diet is still working), the Fates smiled and all went well. After dropping […]

Summertime

Summertime for trans folk is a strange time. You would think it’s all floaty dresses, smooth pins and fancy wedges. What could be more transtastic than all that? Hmmm. Well, summertime is an odd time. It’s a time when The Urge – to use a highly technical term – just seems to fade away. It doesn’t go completely – hell, I still double take when walking past Dotty P’s summer collection – but it does seem to abate. Last week P. asked if I was going out to Notts, but truthfully, I wasn’t really interested. This weekend is also the monthly meeting of the girls at Leicester, and to tell you the truth in all this excitement, I’ve kinda lost […]
