What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.

Assumed Sanity

In this life, I find I can do most things (except play guitar or any other musical instrument), so as I sit here at McDonalds at 7.30am with lots of customers, working on a Picaxe micro controller design for a boat, having read the daily paper including the business section and travel, a thought crossed my mind.

Why am I wearing this?

I suppose a teal corset (with my flat chest) and a shiny pvc looking tight mini skirt is not something most sane people would wear, but as I watch my locals, and understand the manager is the son of one of my friends, I realise I wear this out fit because I want to.
I know that having my bicepts and shoulders bare violates all the crossdressing rules, but at the end of the day, my manly body is quite good and efficient and I'm not ashamed of it so what the hell.

Found myself thinking of my wife, still in bed and now I'm missing her, time to go home :)


What a good decision to go home, it's school holidays and Miss 14 and wife were looking at a boring day.
I had one of the best ever daughter / dads day, and the wife played the photographer

Lets just say, we did some serious arse kicking.
I reckon we're the best duo on the fields.

Today we recognise the contribution to our lives, made by our war vets and fallen solders including our brothers in Australia. While it was based on the first world war, we now appreciate all those that have fought in any conflict to create the freedom we now enjoy.

Today, I had planned with a Southern girl, to meet up and take her for coffee. 2 days ago she started to get concerned out going out and yesterday cancelled her outing.
For me, it means I can have an hour to myself and then get back to my daughter who slept over last night as she flies to Christchurch Friday morning with her mum for the rest of the school holidays.
When I get home (and she eventually wakes up) I'll probably take her to the field and let her fly my RC helicopter

OK, so my hour of girl time starts with a coffee from McDonalds, taking a few photos of me in one of my daughters XS purple tops and big boobs, skinny jeans and wonderlust perfume.
I think a lot of the dawn parade participants have turned up here, lots of children (1 girl told me I had lovely hair), a mum with a smaller bum than me - ha ha, OK so there are about 10 more mums and a quite a few dads with larger bums, but I still like mine the best.

Soon, hopefully, I'll get to the hardware shop as I need some butane and aluminium welding rods to repair my patio furniture. I would also like to get some 5 mm glass for another project on my friends boat but that will mean some more specialised tools, so I'll probably have to go with a clear plastic :(

Wife's birthday tomorrow, I should check to see if the weather is good for snorkeling or white water rafting as a present.

To many days in man-land

OK the fishing was fun, working on the boat, even more fun, but to go so many days without an outing is really not acceptable!!!
Last Thursday, I got home and was a bit short tempered with Miss 15, nothing bad, she just picked up on my frustrations. She asked what was wrong, I replied nothing except I need to go out for some girl time. I got changed, picked up a phone I bought online, and visited my local and busy McDonalds at 6pm. Had a wonderful burger called "The Texas Burger" as they are trying to promote burgers with American themes. I spent an hour there trying to figure out my new Android phone.
BTW it's a great phone at about 30% of the price of most named brands of phone.
I then visited K-Mart and tried on a few outfits.
It was a quick outing, but eased my frustrations.

OMG, went out Monday night (8th April)......
This was purely as I had an opportunity and wife kindly even offered to pay for my dinner at "The Coffee Club".

I went out with Josie (pictured on the right).
She was dressed so..... deliciously.
As for me, well lets just say it was getting dark, and I was in a hurry to dressed and put makeup on.
After an hour and a half, a nice meal, good chat and a glass of wine, it became time to get back to our other interesting and cool lives.
