Keeping the green eyed monster at bay

Hi, The other day, as queued to get into the car park, a lady about my age got out, to request a ticket. This was during the day, and near work, so she was in business mode. Smart skirt, sensible heels, nude tights and a good coat. I don’t know why I’m faffing around saying this next bit, but she looked great. I dunno, maybe commenting on random stranger’s outfits, still doesn’t sit well with me. Go figure. But, her outfit, isn’t main point, as it where, just the warm up. In the back of my mind, a little voice whispered: you’ll never manage that. I drove on and let that thought drift through my head. My gut reaction – […]

Frequently Asked Questions

Hi, Larks, it’s a bit late. Still, that’s the penalty for staying up, to watch a film with Little Miss. Usually, she’s tucked up in bed before 9, but tonight, being a Friday, we’ve let her stay up a little. Mind you, she’s another year old – 8 now – and full of character. She certainly knows her mind, when it comes to picking her outfits. No idea where she gets that from 😉 Leggings and an old fave.Thanks to Val for the snap. Last night’s meeting went well and we had quite a few new people come along. As per, the regulars mingled and said hi, so – well, I hope – that no one was left high and […]

Dress? Go. Lashes? Go.
Curves? Go! Make-up? Go!
We have ignition!

Hi, This time last night, well, as I type with somewhat cold fingers, I had finally had chance to try on my birthday present. It was a gift from the Ever Lovely Mrs J. A dress, in fact. But, when you’re trans-something-or-other, a gift from your spouse, such as earrings, a dress or suchlike. It’s so much more than a present; it is, at least to me, acceptance. A twinkle in their eye, that they know what they’ve bought you, will delight. We all have things that we like: certain bands, football teams (Ed: don’t go there, Lynn), authors, gadget manufacturers, clothing shops, chocolates or films. I have, for a little while, been admiring Desigual’s dresses. It’s the cut, the colours, […]

Not everyone’s the same, but we’ve got a lot in common

Hiya, There is much to be said, in my humble opinion, in the pleasure of the first cup of tea, of the day. With the new job, I’m out and about much more than I was, and some days, you just don’t make time to get a brew. Instead, it’s more a quick cup of water, or swigging the diet soda I bought at lunch time. Still, at least I’m up and about. I did read on the BBC News site, the amount of sitting down we do in our comfy office jobs. Much as I’m current sat down and staring at a screen right now, I’m not so screen focused as I once was, and that, for me, is […]

Not so much back to black

Hi, Am I glad it was pay day! The Jones Massive have nearly completely the Christmas shopping – yay, Interwebz! – and we will soon be moving on to the wrapping. By all that’s unholy, the mountain of wrapping… Yes, I know it’s not yet December, but we start early. Mainly to spread out the cost and also to avoid the seasonable comedy mess ups and risks of: I’m not sure what I want  The well loved (!) I’d quite like so-and-so, which you can’t get in the shops, or on-line.  Nothing really…. Thanks, very helpful! 🙂 Spending each morning at the Post Office, queueing for a recorded delivery that has hidden itself at the back of the sorting office. […]
