Change clothes and go

Hi All,

I’m an effort to have more of a life I have been going out after work at least once a week. It’s been great as I get to meet my new man, and I also getting to live a little! (Yay for living). As part of that I don’t always want to be out wearing my work clothes. Although they are comfortable and I do dress well for work, it’s nice to relax and wear something fresh. Makes you feel like you have put effort in, and can get out of the clothes you’ve been wearing and working in all day. This means I have to be proactive with what clothes I take (I don’t like creases) and where I can get changed into said clothes.

I have therefore mastered the art of the quick change in the toilets. Not the most glamourous place to get changed, but it’s effective. Thankfully there are clean toilets in the places where I work, which helps a lot as I don’t like smelly toilets (I will turn around and hold it all in!). It’s not too difficult to get changed in a cubicle either. You may get some strange looks as people walk in and see you doing your hair (I’m sorry you don’t look this good), but other than that it’s been fine. It also gives an opportunity to have what I call a ‘sluts shower.’ This includes some antiseptic wipes that you use to basically freshen up the sweaty areas of the day (I’m looking at you here balls and pits). It really does make you feel like you have made an effort, which is the most important thing. Also you don’t have to worry about smelling bad, which is a turn off in my books. Unless you are my new man, where his man smell is just amazing! I carry some essential toiletries to help with the rest. If you don’t have an atomiser of your signature spray you should definitely get one, it’s so handy. Also some good hand cream to get away dry hands and make you feel fresh too.

Once finished I can relax, re-pack my bag and I’m ready to go for a night on the town. I make things easier by wearing the same belt, carrying light shoes and wearing the same jacket. It surprisingly keeps things easy to carry on the trains in the morning, and I don’t have to lug it round all night either. This has worked for summer, but as the days get colder I will have to get more and more inventive with my outfits to reduce bulk and still look good. Or I could do the easy thing and just sashay from work as is, but I like to mix it up a little too.

I look forward to more nights out and more outfits to put together that won’t crease in my bag :).

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


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
