Ice ice baby

Hi All,

The weather recently in London has been stupidly cold. Now being a winter baby I love the cold weather, that being said I like it enough to appreciate what being wrapped up warm. Yesterday night however I didn't appreciate the cold at all.

Let me start with some back story; I met a guy on tinder (Mr Oz) and we decided to meet up for drinks. Initially I said I was free so we decided to meet in central, but later that day I realised I was working and we had to move it out towards South London. This actually worked out perfect for his as we met in the area he lived in, a fact I found out when we met. So after work I drove over. He suggested a bar that had actually closed down at the beginning of January so we quickly decided on a pub nearby. I parked up my car and walked over, thinking I would find him inside. It was packed! Literally, which is odd for a Thursday night in this area. It was ok, I didn't mind it being busy at all. I couldn't see him and messaged, to which he replied he was in the garden out back. Now this was already a freezing cold evening, so I hoped they had the outdoor heaters. They didn't. I met him, he was taller than me (which is rare) and looked like his pics on tinder (which can also be rare). We both commented on how cold it was. We got drinks and just started chatting. As this was happening I was literally shivering, but maintained composure. It was only when I got up to go to the toilet did I realise that my feet were frozen solid and I couldn't walk properly! I forgot to check inside for space, but Mr Oz went and checked, there wasn't any, but he found out it was busy as it was Australia Day celebrations (Go Oz). He then told me about the marquee behind us with heaters, which was in his view the whole time. I guess I was distracting him. It was a welcome relief when we got in there as I was frozen solid. I think I was bordering on hyporthermia!

After moving to the marquee we continued talking for a while. We realised we both hadn't eaten and decided to go for dinner. This is always a good sign as evening could have been cut short, but I was enjoying his company and I think he was enjoying mine too. We tried a random fusion Caribbean and Indian place, but it didn't appeal. A few minutes later walking down the high street we saw Nandos, but passed it. Only to u-turn and go get some food. It was delicious as always (Nandos if you are reading this sponsorship and shout out I wouldn't mind a black card :p).

After dinner I walked him home, which was across the road from the pub we had been to (it was then I realised how close and easy I had made it for him to meet up). We hugged goodbye and I raced back to my car to warm up. All in all it was a lovely evening. A bit tame compared to last week, but I'm not always that type of girl ;). Mr Oz is so sweet, funny and handsome, and I would love to see him again. We are both away this weekend but will plan something soon.

This could be it, I could break my one date only streak as finally get a second date! I will keep you all posted.

Welcome to my house

Hi All, I got the best news this week! I’m going to be a home (flat) owner!!!! For those that know me and my story you will know that this is a big deal. It means I can finally move out of my parents place and start living life the way I want to, and in pride month no less. What better opportunity could I ask for? It means that I can live with the love of my life, and do all the cute and fun couple-y things that we were always meant to do.  It means I can just be me. That’s the main point really. No more hiding who I am, no more having to answer to others. Free to be who I want, go where I want, come back to the flat whoever I want. It’s not like I’m in a jail sentence at home, but the comments made on how late I come back home do take their toll. I’m the type of person who wants it to be easy, don’t cause too much of a fuss and that way no fights or arguments happen. I mean I am human and I will provoke sometimes, but for the most part I’m easy going and want things to be

This is the end

Hi All, I hope you have all been well, and that these troubled times of COVID are getting better in your respective countries. Thankfully with the vaccines out things will eventually get better and somewhat back to normal. I hope everyone is staying strong during these times too, as they are tough and have really tested humanity to almost breaking point. I realise it has been a long time since my last post. I mentioned a few posts ago that I have run out of things to say about my journey. I have a wonderful partner, a lovely home with him and a nice balance with my family who I can keep my secret life a secret from. So things are going well. This is something the 'me' of a few years ago would have never imagined. I remember a time when I was doubtful I would ever be this happy and in a long term relationship. But I persevered and am better for it now. Even during a pandemic and lockdown(s) I have remained happy, and thankful that I could still work.  I guess one of the reasons

Out

Hi all, Hope everyone is keeping safe from the pandemic and that the pressures are starting to ease off a little in terms of lockdown. It has definitely been a strange year, and it will continue to be for a little while longer. I honestly feel we should write off 2020 and forget it ever happened. Despite all the tragedies and despair there have been nice things to come from it. People are being friendlier towards each other and helping neighbours. They are innovating in times of need and helping out in any way that they can. It will be tough to move forward, and the effects of the lockdown will last for a generation, but we will endure. My post is about a little gem that I found on Disney+ called Out. It's a short animation about a closeted gay man who is struggling to tell his parents about his boyfriend, and the reason he is moving because of it. This is a first for Disney, as they have never really showed an out and proud gay character in anything before. They have alluded
