    It Finally looks like things ARE moving.......and its about time. I'd been gettin frustrated by the lack of progress in gettin an appt from charing cross, so i called them today & they were very helpful. The only hold up is that C x are waiting to hear from the PCT for approval of funding. Once they get confirmation from them, it's all systems go. Charing cross will write to me informing me of the decision, i'll return whatever t is i have to fill in..think its something to do with me bein happy for them to progress....like i'm gonna say no!. Then they'll get in touch again with the all-important Appointment, & all being well i should get to see them late oct/early nov.........at least thats what i've been told. i KNOW its means waiting another 2/3 months but as i've said before i have waited this long so a few more months aint gonna hurt & besides i aint gonna change my mind not now.....not EVER cos in the end i know i'm gonna get to where i want to go

    OK OK......morelike one in 500,000 but still it was fun. You're probably wonderin just WHAT i'm on about here....so let me fill you in. yesterday & today in Lowestoft it was our annual 2-day air-show( planes & the like). it''s been going for 10 years & this was only the 2nd time i'd been since going f/t. The weather over the 2 days had been SO hot it was unbelievable, & that made it all the more fun for me.The Crowds were enormous i can tell you.....in the region of 450,000+.One of the things that stood out for me was the fact that there were several female pilots taking part in the display.....one of them actually OWNED a WW2 Mk 9 Spitfire,worth well over £1,000,000.I must admit whilst there i did get one or two funny looks which is hardly surprising when you think i must have been the only t-girl there. That's why i'd adopted the CGF attitude ( couldn't give a f.....steady on girl!) not ladylike language.BUT having said that, 2 chaps actually took the time to speak to me....now i aint sure if it was a wind-up but they seemed genuinely interested.I THINK i even managed to get on the local news too.....yeah right, i'll believe that when i see it.All in all a fun few days & i can honestly say i've never been out in a crowd THAT big before...GOD it was a hoot!

    It seems like the last few months have been a real DRAG, but at last things are on the move. Back in april, i went to see dr olive about getting started on HRT & he said he'd refer me to charing cross.....that was months ago & i'd heard nothin so i called in to see his secretary to see why the delay & she said she'd get right onto it. A few weeks passed.....then in this mornings post i recieved a letter from Dr Olive, apologising for the delay & he also said that he HAS written the letter referring me to charing cross & he sent it a week ago!!!!. I can't tell you how good that made me feel inside. He went on to say that all i have to do now is wait for the PCT approval of funding. Once i get that, i'll be well on my way to being one VERY happy girl indeed. I daresay i'll have to wait a bit longer to get my appt from C x, but at long last things are moving forward & it truly is the BESTEST feeling ever.....

    For me already, 2006 has been a good year for meeting new people. I met Gloria,Robyn,Mags, Maryanne & Justine for the first time at sparkle a few weeks ago.....& i thought i couldn't top that but i did today because i met Joanne Lee for the very first time. I knew she was comin over but wasn't sure when, but i got a phone call from her on Tuesday asking if i fancied meeting up.....of course i  said yes, as i've known Joanne almost as long as i've been a member here at TW. We met earlier today & went for Lunch and a drink or two, before i showed her around the Lowestoft.Even here we have places of interest & things to see like the tallest wind-turbine in Europe( allegedly) & the most easterly pub in th UK too. Then Jo managed to forget where she's parked the car, so we had to wander round tryin to find it which we eventually did. Then drove back to my place, where i made the tea & we sat and talked about all kinds of things....i even showed her the pics i took at sparkle. All too soon, it was time for her to leave which was a shame cos we could've sat & talked for hours. I watched her drive away, with a mixture of happiness/Sadness inside me but in my heart i knew we'd both had a good time. I ask  myself if my  year could  have got any better.... well after meeting 2 Girls from the US & now one from down under (Oz), all of whom i'd met for the very first time i don't see how it can but.........you NEVER know eh?

    This Version of a favourite song of mine, by Jon Bon Jovi kinda sums up my attitude to life & bein TS. All i try to do is live the life i want to & not to take flak from ANYONE for just trying to be myself. The song in question is "Everyday" & it goes summat like this...." goodbye to all my yesterdays,goodbye so long  i'm on my way  i had enough of cryin,bleeding,Sweating, Dying Hear me when i say gonna live my life everyday I'm gonna touch the sky,i spread these wings and fly I aint here to play,gonna live my life EVERYDAY Goodbye to all my rainy nights Goodbye,so long i'm movin on I had enough of crying,bleeding,sweating,dying Hear me when i say gonna live my life everyday I'm gonna touch the sky, spread these wings and fly i aint here to playGonna live my life EVERYDAY"Jon bon jovi.......a VERY talented artist.....& soooooooo cute too!

    My sparkle started in the most unexpected of circumstances in that charllet was supposed to be comin to stop with me the Weds before sparkle....but she was here on the tues, & i had NO idea she'd planned it. So we spent weds & thurs together before headin off to catch the train to Mancs at 07:50, eventually arriving there just before 2pm. Headed Straight to the Hotel to Check in, before everyone else turned up.sat in the hotel bar havin a drink or 2 when in walked Gloria,Robyn, Justine, M/A & Mags whom i'd not met before( & would meet several more times during the w/e). Hit Canal st on Fri night & it was BUZZIN.....you've never seen so many Girls out havin a good time.Went in several places startin with Paddys Goose. I came out of there & grabbed somethin to eat in a take away....& i got chatted up by a rather cute chap!!!. Ended up in Taurus until almost midnight when i started to nod off which was hardly surprisin given that me & charllet had a 6hr train trip to get there.Dropped into bed just after 12-30 & didnt wake til 8 am the following morning. Went Down for Brekkie before Headin out to canal St to see what was goin on....& There was quite a bit actually. Some of the Frocks i saw bein worn made me decidedly envious of some girls but there ya go.Actually spent most of the day sat outside Via Fosse with JJ,suzy & co chatting amongst ourselves before we took a wander back to the hotel to get ready for the evening. Met up again with maryanne,mags, Justine, Robyn & Gloria before we went for a chinese, although only 6 actually went for it. Once finished there, took a wander over to sackville gardens to catch the end of "Miss Sparkle" & to see the counterfeit Dolls band which were playin. Comin back up canal St we bumped into lucy & pippa,always a pleasure to meet them & was just a shame we didn't have longer. Ended up in Taurus again with the usual crowd...with Christina & fay eventually joinin us. left there & got a Burger before headin back to the hotel feelin decidedly squiffy cos we'd both had a fair bit to drink. Woke around 9-ish & went for brekkie before goin back to the room to pack our stuff as we had to be out of the room by 12. Before that, we did manage to meet up with JJ,suzy,chris & fay, so we could go for a coffee which we sat in sackville gardens drinkin. Pretty soon after, it was time to go our separate ways as we both had long journeys home. It's at times like this i always seem to get a lump in my throat & this was no exception for this soppy mare! went back to hotel to collect cases before takin one last stroll down canal st for a drink or two before we caught our train back home, which didn't leave til 2.45 pm. I have to say i was rather sad to leave cos we'd both had a truly fantastic time. Eventually arrived at norwich at 7.30 pm where we had a 1 1/2 hour wait for a connecting train back to lowestoft which didnt get there til almost 9.45pm, both of us were pretty tired but glad to be back after a truly memorable weekend for so many reasons.Meetin lots more girls i.e Glo,robyn, justine & co was just BRILL but what capped the whole thing off was havin my charllet with me. I can truly say that having her with with me so everyone could meet the girl who's well & truly captured my heart, just made me feel SO proud to be out with her. its a feeling & a memory this girl will never EVER forget.A.M xxxxxxxxxx

    In just 48 hrs, i will have back with me the Girl that i love so very very much indeed. I honestly never thought it would Be  SO tough not havin charllet here but it has & i have Missed her so much it truly does hurt i can tell you. It seems an absolute AGE since she was last here with me( well 3 months), & the time has dragged SO much........thank God for the phone calls & chats on Yahoo IM or i'd have gone stir-crazy. Now i have my little angel that i carry with me everywhere, so it feels like she's with me even though my charllet's 100's of Miles away.

    I'm gonna get this down QUICK before i forget any of the details. Well......what can i say about the w/e except that i had a bl**dy great time. It started with me making a train journey from Lowestoft to Cambridge on Fri afternoon, getting there around 4.55pm. There to pick me up from the station was my Friend Caroline with whom i was staying that night. After gettin back to hers & havin tea, we sat and watched the film "Transamerica", accompanied by a bottle or 2 of Red Wine before hittin the sack as we had a quite a long trip ahead of us...down to Didcot for a party at Christina's place, gettin there around 2-30 pm to be greeted by Chrissy,Bex,JJ,suzy..... I have never seen SO much food for the BBQ  as was there, its safe to say we did'nt go hungry. There was plenty of Booze too......& even some polish Vodka which tasted like rocket fuel.Spent most of the evening outside in the garden just boozin & Chatting amongst ourselves until the wee small hours..well until 3 am when i just picked my spot and Crashed. By the time i woke, a few peeps were up & about drinkin tea & coffee whilst waitin for Brekkie consisting of bacon, sausage, beans,mushroms,black pudding,toast.....of which i had plenty.Stayed chattin for a while longer before it was time to go our separate ways, in my case back to Cambridge so i could get the train back to Norwich & then home. I must admit to feeling a bit sad when leavin cos we'd had a great time( me espcially as it was the first time i'd been invited ), but on the other hand knowin that there's only 2 WEEKS til sparkle.Now i know this may sound a bit funny but i consider the likes of JJ,suzy,Caz,Bex& Chrissy like a second family cos they're all the kind of friends a girl could wish for.which is all to the good cos in 2 weeks time i am gonna be SO proud to introduce them all to the girl thats well & Truly Captured my heart.....my sweet ANGEL CharlletI just can't wait.......tis TRUE i tells ya!

    I was having a lovely day today......until one paticularly scary incident put paid to all that. I'd been in the library to use one of their PC's to check my yahoo email when 2 peeps  came in, saw me....& just started comin out with the most foul & obscene  language which was directed at me. I ignored it as best i could but, but when the spitting started.....that really did P*ss me off big time & i said to them " you lot are pathetic", before i left the place. Pretty soon 2 became 4 & they followed me all round town.....even in to a supermarket. One said"we'll be waitin for you", now by this time i really WAS scared so i got the girl on the checkout to call for the police cos even she could see what these t***s were trying to do. The store manager couldn't have been any better cos he rang the police straight away & they arrived within minutes. I told them what had gone on, what had been said & the like. They did have a look round for them, but they'd conveniently done a runner. The 2 officers couldn't have been any better cos i had been treated with respect & courtesy throughout..... i cant fault them in any way at all.They even gave me a lift to the Tesco store in town so i could get the bus home from there. Even now i still get the shakes & i shoudn't cos NONE of this was my fault in any way. All i was doing was minding my own business, doing my own thing....& this happens to me. It's not the first time either this has happened & its getting to the stage where i'm always on edge when i go out, fearful that someone's gonna have a go at me.....or worse. I tell you, this really has given my confidence a severe kicking, but i wont let it get me down. i JUST don't know what the hell is wrong with people these days.....i truly dont........

    Tis Just a quick post this one, cos if i type it all in again i'll be here ALL night. It's Just to say that everything went very well on Thurs for me at that conference. I even Got up and told MY story about what its like to be TS & livin here in Lowestoft....& the response i got was BRILL & so it should've been in front of an audience of 100 people. The rest of what happened, you'll find in the forum post entitled " This Girl did DAMNED good"..all i'll say is read but above all ENJOY!.
