Santa Baby

Hi all,

I hope everyone is ready for the holidays. It’s a lovely time of year. People are generally a bit happier, things tend to be busy but then slow down, and London is full of festive cheer. It’s also near my birthday, which is always fun for me. This year I got to spend it with bae. My first birthday spent as a proper couple, and it was glorious. We had an easy day, and. Got my wish of not wanting to make any decisions so was extra happy. It was nice waking up in the flat and realising what I have achieved this year. New job, new home and a more serious relationship with bae. Truly everything I could ever ask for.

But something in me wants more. This time of year is all about family, and whilst I am on my way home now to spend time with them, and bae is at his family spending time with them, I yearn for us to be together and spend it as one. It would be amazing to have everyone enjoying the festivities and my family getting to meet bae. Sadly I know this would never happen, as my parents would not allow it. So I must settle instead to meet bae’s family, which would be amazing when it happens. I already have met his sister, who is lovely and I get on well with, so meeting her again will be nice. To finally meet his mother would be interesting. I have sent some presents, which I hope she likes, but I have this romantic notion of meeting her one day and her liking me, and approving. Like one of those American Hallmark channel movies where everyone meets and Christmas and it ends up going well.

My wish for the future would be for this to happen. I know next year is most likely, and in that time bae will finally meet my sister, and I will meet more of his family. This is something I never dreamed would happen, and am so glad it will. It’s truly what relationships are for, to build bridges and extend ones love to others. So for this year all I ask of Santa is to bring me a happy 2020, and for future dreams to come true.

And for all my followers and people who stumbled onto this blog, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas (or holiday period), and a fantastic new year. I hope you get to spend it with loved ones too.

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
