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.

A great Christmas

While my 3 youngest were under instructions not to buy any girl clothes, my 20 year old who is not allowed to know, bought me a nice pair of tights, and lovingly called me a girl.
We all spent the rainy day playing cards and doing a jigsaw, while I was wearing my favorite shiny leggings.

Where has my girltime gone?

Hanging up Christmas lights.
Shopping for Christmas presents.
Someone's turning 16, more shopping for presents,
hope she gets nice dresses that we can share.
Cut out rotted fence post, fit new post and reconnect fence.
Kitchen sink mixer broken, turn of water to house for 24hrs, buy new tap, connect new tap, turn water on - girls happy to be able to shower after todays heat.
Pimped my car lights.

I really need girl time.

I hope you have a great Christmas
if I don't see you again before then.
I know what I want in my stocking :)

Finally found time to get out and relax a bit

So last few weeks has been about work around the home, and now is the time my wife wants me to go Christmas shopping with her, but this morning she had no need of me for a few hours.

Saturday evening I tried a few makeup combinations with both my makeup and the daughters in an effort to find out if I could do something better, it was also nice that I got to relax with the family while wearing a new womans top and my tight shiny black womans pants.
So today, Sunday, I headed out in the same black pants but with a red lace top for an early morning (6.30am) coffee at McDonalds, used their free wifi. I then did a little drive around of Auckland and checked out the Parnell Rose Gardens before heading for another coffee at Columbus Coffee.

By 9.30am, it was getting to hot to wear a wig without an air conditioned mall to visit, so it was home time for me
On the way home, I stopped at the hardware to pick up some molded timber and paint to fix the front door of our house.

McDonalds, and wondering why I would cross dress in pants?

Back in to a nice business skirt for my second coffee and a bit of cake
