Things have been weird.
|I mean - my smile is stupid, my hair|
On the Saturday I had taken around some sweet things for the children to celebrate their last day of isolation (they went down well) and then went to the actual pub before stopping off at a charity shop and getting a new (to me) t-shirt and some black jeggings. When I got home that evening I tried them on and practically wept in gender euphoria, I'm not even joking. A bit of background is perhaps required here.
|That's not a posed smile, that's just|
what I look like.
|Agh, the teeth!|
But that t-shirt...
This week is going to be busy, I said that already, but there is the potential upside of being in that city again on Wednesday and Thursday. I found a couple more charity shops. I need to find some blue jeggings and some blue actual jeans too. I may be able to do this. Also, online, I have found some women's trainers (actual ones too) that I would like in my actual size that I can actually afford. They may or may not be ordered soon. Really, that would complete the outfit. And, you know, also give an option for when I don't want to be the office lady out on lunch but just want to be the lady out and about, you know? Maybe a couple of leggings as well. I don't always have to wear a dress or skirt. Honestly, I really wasn't prepared for how I felt in the jeggings. Not at all.
I also looked up how much leg waxing costs (£35+) and where it can be done (a few places) and... do I buy trainers and some more trainer socks first or do I put them on hold and get my legs waxed before going back to work? Also, I'll need a hair-cut before going back to work in September - no, not short, but to stop it looking too unkempt - more a trim really. That is paid for (by dint of missing so many haircuts in the meantime). But, again, should I be paying for leg-waxing or trainers? So many (rather new to me) questions.
Oh, and I shall be able to make the next in-person support group meeting - yay! Now all I have to decide is if I dare go again (long journey the following day) and what to wear - gotta look a little professional, you know.
