What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Dinner on the run - Subway

Lovely $5 meal at Subway, but really an excuse to show of my new blue skirt, so I just had to go to McDonalds Manukau where it was quite full for a follow up cup of tea. Total girl time this week 1.5 hours but it was worth the effort.

Week without Rachel

More issues at home, the stress has been over the top and if it wasn't for my lovely wife, I would be well on my way to the mad house. While many morning and evenings I've been tempted to escape into my female self, I've had to stay "normal" during the issues.
With my girl clothes in a bag beside my bed, ready for a quick outing, Miss 14 decided to nosey through my kit and got a bit of a shock. While she was OK with the cross dressing (seen me in skirts often enough) she was worried I was gay and meeting men.
Miss 13 has seen a photo of me dressed up at the shops and sometimes encourages me to try on skirts or blouses when we go clothes shopping (especially if it's something we both like).
Both girls are really wonderful (and very protective of their mum). I think I have the best family in the world.

Sunday 10th June

Today is my youngests First Communion starting at 10.30am, so it was a quick outing this morning (again - one day I hope to be out all day).
As usual it started with a coffee and a quick trip to Sylvia Park.

My dress I bought about 12 years ago and seems to be fashionable again. It works well with my C cup breasts as I was feeling a bit showy.
Actually Supre in Auckland had some shinny "Gaga" type clothes which I was hoping to try on at their Sylvia Park branch before the church service. No luck, that range of clothing was only in Auckland
After the service, I went in to Auckland City (as a male) and tried on some of the "Gaga" clothes but disappointed at my lack of hips decided they were not suitable. Some of the shop girls were fun when they realised my male self was trying on PVC leather dresses.

I did however purchase a lovely little blue skirt for $15. When I eventually got home my daughters were boasting and modeling new tops mum had bought them while I was out, so I modeled my new skirt for them.

If I only had an hour.......

Actually that's all the time I had for an outing this Queens long weekend.
Just long enough for a morning coffee and 20 minutes to grab some breakfast food from the supermarket for the family.

OK, it's the same top, skirt & stocking I was wearing at home with wife and miss 13 while cleaning the house (vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, doing the laundry). Miss 13 asked me not to wear bras at home, I would guess the wig falls in to the same grouping.
Thinking of the Queens Jubilee - Auckland (the largest city in New Zealand) did absolutely nothing. It's like we only put flags up to celebrate every other culture in the world, whist making British culture or history (yes we're still a colony) taboo.

On Thursday, my 14 year old daughter, my little angel, the most wonderful girl in the world, is at a family court meeting to see if she deserves a conviction for being a stupid idiot. I'm confused about why teenagers need to become stupid idiots. At this stage I think I'm more a spectator, but I know what a wonderful woman she can become after these teen years and I'll do my best to look after her, today, tomorrow and always.
