Been a fun week

First of all Sunday, I tried (and failed) to be a bit sexy, for an admirer who likes tight outfits while I was out for my morning coffee and a walk around Mission Bay and it's fountain.
Normally I would have bare legs, wife likes hairy as she says they look more meaty although I think a leg wax is on my Christmas list as well as a drone for my video hobby
 

Funny thing, 2 large groups of cyclists went by, the guys first, sleek and swift, then the ladies who I heard 2 miles away with their loud chatting.
Anyway, while out, I remembered my cat needs cat food - well the gravy part anyway while the meat goes to waste, daughter wanted Coke and we were low on milk.


Tuesday and I have serious man flu.
Probably had 3 hours sleep during the night in a spare room so as not to wake the wife with my sneezing and coughing. While I had trouble concentrating on driving, I did make it to the shops mid morning for cold drugs and 2 new tops before heading home for some more sleep.
 

Hope you like my Paris top, my wife bought it as a souvenir in Paris a few years ago and I think it's probably the first time I've worn it in public.

I wish I had got food while I was out, as I found out Miss 19 ate my dinner that I was to ill to eat yesterday, while I was out.
I was looking forward to yesterdays left overs, it was a great dish.
I was too tired to go out again although it would have been an excuse to dress up again, I raided the cupboards and only had enough food for one of my favorite dishes - cheese soup (with baked beans for added protein).
Bread, cheese & tomato (tomato flavoured spaghetti or baked beans) would normally equal PIZZA, but this is an old dish that came around with food shortages during the war in England and France.


Anyway - 
Need more sleep again, really need rid of this man flu ASAP, hopefully chat to you again soon.

Rachel.














Once I got home, I ended up getting changed into my garden clothes and dug a trench for optic fibre. It included putting a cut through my concrete pat, so I ended up covered in concrete dust.

Got really scratchy

Yesterday, after quite a while without girl time but...
I did "under dress" most of the day with a pretty bra and thin t-shirt to try to subdue my inner girl, had coffee out at a local shopping mall - it felt very nice and natural















I even attended an accident where a passenger who doesn't like wearing a seat belt, attempted to break the windscreen with her head, she managed only to destroy the inside layer of glass and made the interior a nice red colour.


It did remind me to donate blood, so if anyone is keeping tally - that's 2 good deeds in one day.

Later that night, my lack of "real" girl time was driving me mad and making me really grumpy, so much so that I had to retire to bed early and meditate (helped a little)

THIS MORNING HOWEVER,
I woke at 5 and decided I really have to girl up if I'm going to stay sane.
Went to McDonalds which are open 24/7 for a quick morning coffee as girly as I could -
boob tube (without boobs or make up)  & mini-skirt.













Felt 100% better, went to work and had a great day there before coming back home and digging a 1 meter deep hole looking for my waste water pipe so I can connect the new bathroom -found heavy cement foundations for a post, found sticky wet clay, broke the spade and have blistered my hands.
Hopefully I'll find the pipe soon

All in all, a good day

Building Consent issued

For those that haven't read my earlier posts, I CAD up a new major renovation project for my house, submitted insulation resistances, light and ventilation calcs, weather tightness drawings plumbing & drainage drawings to name a few. I remember back in the 70's when my dad did great drawing for a shed, the finished lean to didn't look anything like the drawings - dreams are free, timber & bricks aren't.
Anyway, having consent has increased the excitement for my wife, who has had me view a dozen different show rooms this weekend looking at tiles, taps, showers and all the other nick nacks. Her new revised estimate only has us $2K short - lets hope I can save a bit on the build.

Did I mention that yet again, while I was in Australia, my house had another plumbing failure - always happens when I'm in Australia. This time it was underground and I had to open a few walls to bypass the leak. I'm planning to re-do the dry wall (gib board in NZ) as I need better water proofing during the renovations, so the new holes can wait a bit.

All this stress means I need to get out more - well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
Please excuse the top, it was free, so why not enjoy it
 



Did I mention my kids had a party, that finished at 3 am and left me picking up about 60 tins and bottles off the garden.
Can you tell I only had 3 hours sleep?
Luckily their empties only 1/2 filled my recycling bin as I remember a 21st that overflowed the bin.

Purge

Purge is a hated word in cross dressing circles.
Basically we throw out all our female stuff (clothes, breast forms, wigs, shoes).
Normally when we feel guilty that there is something wrong with us (there isn't), or pressured by family, or how I feel currently, which is happier as a male.
I've been there once or twice before, but know that with stress or time or whatever the hell triggers these personality switches, I will be needing my girl stuff again (the golden rule is we are stuck with this condition forever, so never throw away your girl stuff).

I made a commitment to have a girls brunch, so this morning I put my girl stuff on and waited and waited. It was about 15 minutes latter, while having a morning coffee that I was relaxed enough and felt like I was correctly dressed.
Before the manly cowboy time on the farm a few weeks ago, I would have woken as a female or if not, I could have switched personalities in milliseconds.

 

I would like to thank my wife for the loan of her skirt as my legs are too hairy to wear my shorter skirts and she has requested that they stay hairy - as if.

After coffee I visited KMart and tried on a few outfits, fell in love with this top but since I had already this weekend spent $150 on plumbing pipes and fittings (this time to bypass an underground leak). I decided not to spend my money just yet.

Eventually it was time to meet up with my girlfriend Josie, for brunch.
The manager did ask why we were away for so long as we used to be regulars, but sometimes real life gets in the way of fun outings.

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.

SUNDAY
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.
