Dropping my alter ego

Sorry, I've been away, besides my blog was turning into a me-drinking-coffee blog.

I've been playing cowboy in Western Australia, so much more fun than playing girl.
Australia has a great range of wild life so my camera has been with me most of the time.
Sorry again, no girl time and this farm adventure has all but killed my need to dress, but it's also an invitation to look at who I've always thought I was in real life.

Too shorter time

Been in boy mode most of the week, got quite a nice beard going.
But I had plans for the weekend, of freedom and fun
So the beard left my face friday.
Saturday - no girl mode, just working around home, going to the gym, reading a fun novel.

Took my daughter to the other side of the city for a 9 am course.
By 9.10 I had changed and I was having my first coffee at Albany shopping center.
I didn't realize at the time, but just 1 km away from the shopping center is the sports field where the All Blacks played the Springbok rugby team last night, where our boys dominated the game

I had hoped that after coffee, I could browse the shops, but apart from KMart, all the other shops were shut until 10 am and I had other things planned for the day. I did see some pretty tights/sports leggings, I would so love to look pretty at the gym. I checked out KMart stuff as well before heading back through the "City of Sails", home of the America's Cup.

It's nearly election time, but some places opened a week early for people like me who know who they are voting for, so being a loyal NZ citizen I performed my democratic duty before meeting up with my girlfriend for a catch up and beverage.
Later in the day, I was water blasting the fence in scruffy t-shirt, very short shorts and no shoes when wife announced that the daughter needed an early pick up, so jumped in the car with my wife and raced off. Half way there, a new text indicating a later pick up was required. Wife and I decided to get some groceries and I asked if she wanted me scruffy and shoeless in the shops or pretty as I still had all my girl clothes and shoes in the back seat. So there I am at a busy mall, shoeless, scruffy and covered with dirt from water blasting. Personally I would have been happy to change in to something prettier

Please remember to vote, 
this is our country and we should all have a say in how it's run.

you know it's girl time when...

Life has been good, but I've found myself clenching my jaw, grinding my teeth
Obviously it's an early indication of stress.

Working out at the gym and seeing the women in tights helps, but what really helps is
Relaxing in girl mode, and I needed serious girl mode this morning

While I'm not a fan of stockings, my wife has asked that I grow the hair on my legs for a family reunion in Perth (8 hours flight for us) in a few weeks, so hence the stocking just for you.

BTW - I need a cheap under $100 drone, with Alt hold etc to video my trip, so if you know anyone with a spare and quick postage to New Zealand.

This morning I discovered two things
1) with g-strings, things get uncomfortable when stuff falls out
2) I should have done a double coating of Thin Lizzy concealer on my chin

While I didn't bring extra make up with me, a quick change solved the problem of the g-string


This morning I've tried on 3 pretty leggings, 3 sports tops and 2 sports bra.
As I'm saving money for the family reunion, I only purchased a sports bra, but might go back for one of the sports top that goes beautifully with the blue sport bra - can't wait to show them off at the gym.

Well I hope your having a good weekend and my thoughts go out to those who are having trouble with hurricanes.
For the rest of today my wife is going to point out to me all the plants at the garden center, tell me the Latin name and a story about each (unfortunately it's no where near a car/motorbike or tool shop).

Life got a little bit serious

I'm not one to be serious
Why should I spend time being serious, there no fun in that type of life.

Well the pergola I removed from someones home, now has been partially used as a trellis fence and still lots of timber left over for other projects.
Daughters car wouldn't start, she's only home for 2 weeks so I gave her the battery from my old wagon, then took it down for it's 6 monthly safety check - failed on it's front wheel bearing so now it's off the road waiting for me to find $400.

While I was getting the car repair priced, I decided I needed a coffee and went to a local and busy (ish, as it was only 3.40 in the afternoon) McDonalds. The staff member who served me was very interesting (dark eyeliner and orange eye shadow and lips) and I liked her, complimented me on my top.


Other news.
Wife wants me to have hairy legs for a family reunion. Apparently in South Africa, shaved legs implies an athlete or gay and she reckons I can't cut it as an athlete. So while I have a skirt on today, I decided on a longish skirt as I'm not in to pantyhose/stockings.

The gym workouts are enlarging my shoulders, arms, legs and chest.
Wife says I'm OCD and would probably only work one muscle,
I told her "if that was the case, I would join a brothel, not a gym".
Gym instructor and wife noticed I still had make up on.

Weekend without outing

So my wife bought a nice trellis for $2
My job was to dismantle and bring it home
The front trellis was 5 meters and the rear trellis 7 meters
Sunk into clay with what appeared after 4 hours of digging, to be an unlimited amount of concrete.
Hour 5 I got permission to just cut it down below ground level.
Burned out my chainsaw blade but by the end of the day (7 hours work) I only had 2 posts left.
Sunday it took 3 hours to cut down the last 2 posts carry 450 Kg off timber 40 meters down steps, off the property, on to the trailer, back home and another 10 meters to a storage area on my property.

Sunday night my body was fair aching so ..........
Monday morning (today) I hit the pools to swim out my sore muscles.
Since you have seen me often enough in the pools, I only took pictures in the changing room and I no longer swim with breast forms on as they are just too big for swimming with.
