Little outing

Okay, you have all seen my 3 different one piece swim suits so I won't bother you with another photo from the last week.

The weekend just gone, I went out for a morning coffee

While there a nice woman by the name of Jo started chatting to me. We had such a nice chat about family, relationships, etc that I barely made it to the gym in time to do the 8 am fitness session.

I did make it to the session in my Lycra 3/4 pants with floral trim (at the back), plain black top, fingernail polish and make up as per my morning coffee, but I know the workout is to hot for a wig.

Coffee before Gym

First, my morning coffee

Followed by a hard session at the gym (between the gym and helping wife plant lots of plants yesterday, I've found back muscles I didn't even knew I had).

Wife's new garden that we created (her design after watching lots of gardening programs, my muscle)

And in the News.......

1) Many trans gendered military were upset about Donald's tweet. I'm surprised at the number of us in the armed forces serving and protecting our countries - I suppose the armed forces are a natural way of denying/hiding our inner feelings and as such would be a natural place for us to gravitate.

2) and more importantly for me - my gym instructor has not only seen me in girl mode at the shops, had her son asking her about my sexuality, but is trying to encourage me to wear pretty female work out clothes. Really sore now after doing "her" program, need steroids badly to increase my muscle recovery, but stuck with "deep heat", so I'm now sore and stinky.

Girl / Boy week

This week:-
I went to a hair dresser wearing pants, semi see through top, pretty bra, NO make up, No wig.
He gave me a cute feminine hair cut & style, and only charged me for a mans cut - so going back there next time

I also joined the gym. 
I wore black tights and pretty pink work out top.
During the signing up, the staff asked what I would like to accomplish, I said either a hot feminine body or failing that, one like Dwanye Johnsone - (either way I wouldn't mind). Between you and me, I just want my abs back and be able to walk a few mountains.
After signing up and seeing all the "lads" working out, I decided to dress like the lads. It felt really good working out and after 14 years of running slower than my youngest daughter, I discovered I can still run at a reasonable mans pace.
Wife doesn't want me going there in girl mode due to the number of the kids friends who work out there, fair enough, yet she doesn't mind me swimming there in a one piece (gym overlooks the pools).
Finished my first work out, and I felt like a tough new man and really wanted to quickly find a taekwondo class to refresh those skills. 💪

Still swimming, I enjoy it and it's good for working out any back problems I'm having (slipped disks, pulled muscles etc). I think the shoulder I injured 18 months ago putting dry wall on the ceiling and falling of a ladder, is now back at full strength.
Same pool, I'm up to 1,000 meters each day - after a week, I'm starting to see my abs again.

I would like to add, all this exercise is reducing my desire to dress.
But that would be a lie 😊

I had 1 hour to cook dinner for wife and daughter, so I quickly got dressed, went out for a coffee, got petrol for the car, got home and used the microwave to cut the cooking time down to 20 minutes.

Funny thing during my coffee, a mum and children were intently watching me.
In the process of watching me, one of the girls knocked over her frozen drink and was saddened by her loss. As I left, I offered some spare coins to the mum to buy another drink for the girl.
While it cost me $1, I hope my kindness influences them

Going mad

Okay, so I haven't been able to get out for a while and it's driving me mad.
Actually yesterday, I found out I'm the only male I know who is still sane - all the others are on "Meds" for depression.
So I'm sane - but a smidgen mad.
Previous post showed the hail and it's been raining ever since, add that to the fact I had a bad cold (man flue), then last weekend every time I opened an App, the hard drive would spin up and after 50 minutes I still wasn't getting the full front page. Time for a computer rebuild and I have only just got all my Apps back and running.
Did you know when you move emails to folders, they drop off the server - me bad, so many emails & contacts lost.

Finally some girl time. I was going to go out this morning, but wife had me making some planet boxes for her. She did allow me out around 3 pm, so I got dressed pretty and she made the son-in-law bugger off so I could leave the house without him seeing me.
I headed straight to the Auckland museum to check out the 2016 wildlife photographers expo.
The place was packed (probably only dry venue when it's raining), especially in the photo expo area.
The photos were so great, I'm keen again to get my DSLR back out to play with.




The place was so busy, that when I went to the coffee shop, the staff advised me their was a 25 minute wait for coffee.

So I decided to go to McDonalds for coffee. it was their 5 pm peak period, with nearly every table occupied, but it still only took them 3 minutes to make my coffee.

Now for those that know me, as usual when wearing lose skirts or dresses, I don't wear underpants/undies/nickers, and the 3 hours out today was no exception. It's so great to walk around feeling free.

The weather is great

So far today we have had about 5 lots of 10 minutes of sunshine, 5 lots of 10 minutes of torrential rain and the rest of the morning has been cold and drizzly.
This was a couple of days ago, I haven't seen hail in Auckland for about 15 years - until 3 days ago, the area also had 405 lightening strikes, including one that hit my youngest daughters school and scared all the kids.

All my kids are home now as it's the weekend after term break up and the weekend before University starts. ie it's a crowded house, just the way I like it, 4 daughters and all their friends.
Most cross dresses prefer an empty house so they can dress up, but as it's a part time obsession for me, I like a busy & fun home. The latest thing is what to put in front of the bathroom door so the person in the shower either trips or is otherwise stuck when they try to leave - wife wouldn't let me move the sofa this morning.

A girl still needs her morning coffee, read the newspaper and relax for 30 minutes or so, regardless how busy the house is.

Mini break

After working hard on a massive design, finally closed the job and decided to de-stressssss
- by dressing

1) Large coffee and muffin
2) unwind in the library
3) picking up milk on the way home and having a fun chat with pretty lady who kept on checking me out at the cashiers.

Finally got pretty bathers

From my previous post, you'd know I only have blue one piece swim suits.
For me this was getting a bit 'boyish" and I've been looking for a reasonable priced pretty one piece.

So I was having a swim at Papakura in my normal blue one piece on Friday and had mentioned how I can't find a pretty swim suit at a reasonable price to the staff on the way in.
They said they would have a look through their stock and see what they had for when I got out.
I tried on a couple they had put on the counter for me, and decided to buy the one in the photo.

Monday morning and I finally get to give my purchase a 500 meter swim test at the pools.

Chatted to the neighbour while...

Decided on some girl time this morning and took my car for a run to Sylvia Park shopping center.
Had a coffee and it reminded me why I prefer McDonald's barista coffee, so this mornings coffee left me feeling like I hadn't actually had a drink. I did get to read their newspaper and a write up about how the NZ boat is faster than the Americans (America's Cup races tend to capture the public's attention, especially when we are winning)
I also checked out a few clothes shops, but found myself being distracted by my projects at home.

So at home, I'm still removing rusty gutters and fitting plastic gutters.
So I'm up my ladder removing old rusty brackets in a long t-shirt and black cotton tights when my neighbour visited and asked for help with cutting down one of his trees. We chatted for a bit then I told him I would just get changed before I popped over to help him.
Between his tree and my gutters, I think I've managed to strain every part of my body and also put my back out - but what a productive day - Can't wait until Monday when I get to sit in a nice office chair and just relax with just a PC and a phone.

everyday occurance

It seems every day I've been in girl mode.
Depending on Auckland traffic, wife can be up to two hours later at getting home.

Some afternoons it's walk the dog, get back make dinner and then change in to boy mode.
Other days, pick up bread, milk etc, make dinner then change in to boy mode.

This weekend was only Saturday morning only outing - coffee and groceries.

This morning I wanted the short skater skirt, but later in the morning - 
a quick car change in to something more respectable to shop in.

Long weekend Alone

What every girl wants, time to dress up and relax however she wants

Friday 11am, dropped wife and Miss 19 off at the airport, got home by 12 noon and put on my sports 3/4 leggings, push up bra, green top, nail polish and walked the dog around the neighbourhood. Once I got back, I changed into women's skinny jeans, went to the mall for a couple of hours and got my eyebrows waxed.

Miss 14 and I spent the evening knocking down a built in wardrobe (coke, pizza, sledge hammer and a wrecking bar - so much fun), then at 8 pm she had to go to her birth mothers house for the weekend.

Saturday -
Dressed and makeup on by 8 am, taking extra care with the makeup- including eyeliner for once as I will be wearing it all day. By 10 am I had already had my McDonalds coffee, with one of the staff commenting on "haven't seen you for a while, the usual?" (it used to be a weekly event but I've been checking out other coffee shops in the area) and I had also been to Bunnings warehouse and picked up a sheet of dry wall, paint, screws.

I also had to queue up to see the local Justice of the Peace so he could witness me signing a legal statutory declaration and he also needed to see a legal form of identification -ie drivers license.
The afternoon I spent, still dressed pretty but with a paper overalls on, fitting the drywall where the wardrobe used to be and also painted my bedroom.
Walked the dog again.

7 pm and I had to swap back to male mode - for a fancy dress party (wife had already specified I had to be a MALE sailor - yuk, I mean there was a pretty female sailor at the party, I would have loved to sailed home with her, although swapping outfits was out of the question as hers was figure hugging even though she didn't make 5 foot 1)

Visited Botanical gardens and walked the dog. Spent the first 20 minutes with another couple walking their 2 little dogs, just chatting and getting our dog leads tangled. Of course the dog waited until we were outside the busy cafe before he wanted to poop, luckily I managed to move him out off sight before shit happened.


Being alone, meant I was bored when not working at home (waiting for plaster or paint to dry), which meant time for another coffee out and then Subway for an early dinner.

I was planning to wear something "sexy" Sunday evening just before picking up my daughter again from a local church that she and her mum go to, but with a public holiday tomorrow, lots of young lads were out and about, so a quick "in-car" change of clothes before picking her up.

Revisited the idea of trying a "sexy" image, and had a 6am coffee, but looking at the photos I realized I was a generation out.
How's that you ask, easy, everything I'm wearing is from modern young women's shops, add that to the fact I was inspired by what the sales women were wearing, in a public shops during normal trading hours. So apart from the fishnets (which some girl do wear), and my age, and my actual gender, really not much different than the sales girls - okay they actually make the outfit look good.


Funny thing is, last night I was so OVER this being a girl thing.
2 days and I had pretty much gotten fed up with cross dressing, but being in my own bed after repainting the room meant I had a good night sleep.

So refreshed and ready to take on the world, I went for morning coffee in lace bra, mesh t-shirt, slinky skirt and fishnets. The amazing thing is wearing this, it feels like being vulnerable and at the same time as totally free as I've ever felt.

At 7 am, I decided to get some supplies from the supermarket on the way home (bread, milk, cat food etc), but decided to wear decent pants so as not to upset anyone
 - I'm nice like that,  always thinking of other peoples feelings   :)

Nearly finished my extra long weekend and the painting to complete my wife-free holiday
Meet 2 new neighbours, got a few groceries for the girls return and a coffee to help me relax.


This weekend has been so much fun, and hopefully enough so I don't need girl time for a while - ya right!  It's going to be great having my wife back, been missing her every evening.

We all have one....

We all have one of those items of clothing in our possession that we would never be see out in.
For many visiting this site, it's probably an item of women's clothing (funny, I thought you were all cross dressers, I can't imagine why else you are here), for me it's brown corduroy trousers, patterned dinner jacket from the 70's or a dress like my auntie used to wear, maybe floral with frill V neck like the one below.

But I suppose after a nice big glass of wine at the pub, it's easy to enjoy whatever I'm wearing.
Not sure if I walked around like a slightly drunk transvestite or a lady with a bit extra wiggle in her rear end. Just joking, checked out a few shops and generally just relaxed on this beautiful sunny winters day. 

I got home just before my daughter and her boyfriend did and we were chatting on the front porch when she mentioned I was being watched - a young teen boy who probably has never seen a transgender person in real life, was walking past and staring.

Later in the week, I had to get my car to Moon's Motors, for it's 6 monthly safety check, decided to go the extra $$$ for an oil change. It's my cars second oil change in 10 years and the price was the same as if I did it myself. These guys have always looked after my 3 cars really well both in terms of quality and price, the only down side is their dark waiting room with it's 5 year old magazines.
Of course, being out it's always a good excuse for another coffee and decided a bit of lunch wouldn't hurt.

Still later in the week I woke up with the sniffles, decided a nice warm sauna and spa might help, but the only ones close are at the "public" pools 
- I know your all packing your knickers at the thought of being so "out there", well a girls got to do what she's got to do :)

I must admit, in a crowded sauna and spa pool, I did feel like the odd one
- no, not really, 
I just felt like me, and it was great,
although I wouldn't have minded feeling the woman opposite either, apologies, that should have read feeling "LIKE" the attractive woman opposite me in the tight, shiny, chest hugging one piece swimsuit. 
See - it says "feeling like" and not "like feeling" - totally different. Okay? subject closed.
Gee - you girls are so rude even thinking such thoughts.
