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.
