My Deepening Femininity

The opportunity was when one day my girlfriend told me “I made her happy.” Later that day she was sitting on the couch (intuition flashing), and I went and sat down beside her. I asked her “if I was a girl would I still make her happy?”


You'll just have to read My Deepening Femininity, for the answer to the question above.

An unexpected healing cry

I have noted in the past that, since starting HRT, I cry more but that I also laugh more. 


This is a wonderful, feel good post, on Joanne's lovely looking blog site.  Be sure to read the last line!

Solderer Of Fortune

I never knew how unpleasant my family could be until last year. It's difficult to write about, because I have no frame of reference. Sure, some family members have their moments, but to have them all conspiring to be as nasty as they were through those few weeks last autumn is something else.

What can be worse than a transphobic family?   I so feel for Jenny.  Sending virtual hugs.

My experiences of being trans

I cannot convince the whole world. All I can do, when others say I am a man, is calm the echoes their comments arise in myself. Having convinced myself, I do not have to convince anyone else.



This is a really, really good post from our friend, Clare.  She echoes much of what has been going through my head as of late.  Why doesn't the cis-public get us?  Public acceptance of transgender folks seemed to be progressing well until a year or two ago, but now we seem to be going backwards.....and it all is centered around the right of a transwoman to use the woman's restroom.  All it takes is for one non-trans pervert to reveal himself in women's undies, in the women's restroom, to send the public's  perception of those who consider themselves trans back 20 years.  It just makes me want to scream.

Food Revelation

Yet sadly, no matter how I cut calories, after the first few pounds, weight loss just wasn't happening. On top of that, I was hungry most of the time - craving those goodies that got me where I was. Clearly, a diet wasn't going to help me in the long run. If only I could find a way to not feel so hungry - then I wouldn't mind cutting calories.

Our dear friends, Halle and Caroline have been dealing with wright gain (haven't we all?) during the pandemic.  They're now focused on losing that extra weight and seem to have come up with a proven method of doing so.  Halle also links to a similar post, from Caroline. Go here for Halle's post.

Preparing nails for varnishing

Often one has so little time before a night out that one does one's best with the time available. Some stick-on nails will do! But the nails that nature gave you are best, in my view, if you can get them right.


Sue has got some tips to make you and your nails glam!
