Internal alarm clock

So I turned off my alarm, but my body is so used to early wake ups.
Wife & kids won't wake for another 3 or 4 hours.
I really wanted to dress slutty this morning for you, naughty little black skirt & fishnets but sorry, fishnets just don't look good on my skinny shapeless legs so I got changed again.
Now normally I'm not a stocking type of girl, preferring bare legs, but looking at my shaving rash, today I've made an exception, swapped to a skater skirt and just for you, added boots. Yes it's technically mid winter and boots are normal but it's warm enough outside to be summer and McDonalds Cafe have the heaters set for roasting their coffee beans and clients - reminds me of Kuala Lumpur in summer.
Forgot to bring my camera out this morning, so it's my cheap phone camera to show you my outfit. Funny since I was planning to bring out my big Canon camera, but decided it was to big and heavy for my handbag.

Needing my eyebrows waxed or threaded again, but just spent up large on a new bow and another set of arrows and I need to invest in a wood lathe sooner than later (or find a night class that will let me have about 16 hours on their lathe)
So instead of eyebrow waxing, I just checked out 2 hardware shops looking for some 55x55mm lenths of timber unsuccessfully, so may need to get my hands on a planer as well.
I did park up at another coffee shop, one with a news paper so I can read the more news about Brexit, but decided I can do that better by taking wife out for brunch at the same time.

What a week

My prayers go out to those involved in the Orlando shooting.

Been busy doing building work on the house again, putting banister around the deck, just need a rocking chair, whiskey and my guitar and it will be perfect.

So my last post, I mentioned seeing a lady about make up, during our chat a couple of weekends ago, she fell when she walked into a display and I caught her before she hit the ground. Last weekend while in boy mode I visited her (with a box of chocolates) and saw her bruising, I got a big hug for my concern over her.
She mentioned women's skin doesn't darken like men's and recommended a "Thin Lizzy" concealer.
Today I applied it all over my face loved the results both as to hiding my beard and also giving me a constant colour on my face.

Today I just had a morning coffee at the mall as I've only a boring day of nothingness planned. 

I did however try on a few different outfits, (being women's shop, I had to use the ladies change area as they don't have a men's changing area) and actually bought a new long grey jumper. Everyone I spoke to left me feeling great, some enquiring about my day, some complimenting my looks, including the guy walking past in the photo.
Sunday Morning - party last night again with stereo off at 3.30 am and strangers crashing to sleep around 4.30.
I woke, as usual at 6.30 am and staggered out the house with my new jumper and a bit of a "don't care" attitude - no make up, no wig for a morning wake up coffee at 7 am and read my book for a couple of hours to return home once people should be waking up.

Winter – who needs it.
While we are not there yet, the car windows are iced up at 7am and yet I brave the chill to show you this outfit at my local coffee shop. I liked the top many years ago, but thought it's not really my thing, then I saw oldest daughters, 27 year old friend wear it and I was mesmerized by how she looked in it.


The dive was enough to get the engine to “hot” but the cab is cold and my toes still frozen. Hot coffee has helped and the sun is starting to warm the place up, although chatting to the pretty motorcyclist, she still wants heated hand grips. I checked my hands to find they are still covered with ingrained oil from working under the car yesterday which makes interesting counterpoint to my French nails.

I've just taken a selfie with wife's iPad- the picture looks like an old cross dresser where the image in my head is of a pretty middle aged woman, must get the camera fixed one day.

Later I switched to more age appropriate clothes, and for the Trump supporters, here am I in a McDonalds ladies toilets and also a ladies rest room at a food court (yes, the cleaner is in here as well as another person in the cubical behind me - no you can't see her because we have doors on our cubicals). 


No girls were offended, but I did read yet again in our national newspaper about another American on-campus rape - maybe they should be more worried about campus than trans gendered in toilets yes? I'm sure the stats prove Campus is more dangerous than trans, what with shootings and rapes and ALL done by non-trans people.

However it was nice to see a Trans person receive the Queens honours also in today's national newspaper

I visited Farmers department shop (our version of Myres) and had a great chat to one of the many make up ladies about how best to hide my blue beard. She gave me a free sample of concealer which I will test later today once all my visitors have left (it's been a bit of a neighbourhood feed at home this afternoon).
