Hi Drexy
Thanks for the great compliment I thoroughly enjoyed it, that picture is actually back from July this year. But I don’t think I’ve changed that much in the last couple of months.

I have to say I loved your joke about taking a good pounding… Not sure that this forum to reply to that, I’ve never had a band in this place that I guess is always the chance of a first LOL seriously though I do take your point and it seems no matter what the perception is about fly in fly out workers and the tough job that they do, they proved themselves to be a great bunch of people.

So you mentioned a blood condition that you need to take care of first, I hope you’re able to do that and get off to Mexico at some point to have your body sculpting. I agree with you about voice surgery as opposed to having breast augmentation, I do think the voice is far more important. But who am I to say, it took me over 50 years just to start transition, so my judgement is certainly not perfect.

Whatever it is that you are doing as part of coming out at work, it is working exceptionally well for you. You seem to be able to be make the changes that you need to without causing a complete riot at.
I do think a sense of humour is as important as many of the other attributes associated with transition such as perseverance, tenacity,  courage…..you posess all of those including ther sense of humour and a good few others I haven't listed.

Thanks for the update, once again I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Drexy’s adventures

take care

Hi Liz you own that style and colour it's so true what you say about needed for transition

your kind words lifted my spirits thank you

and go sit in the dry mess... see what i mean that's s half of the dry mess
then a 6hr bus ride to newman through wittenoonm on the way as paraburdoo airport road was  closed..... what a milk run




drinks by camp fire 😉

Oh Wow haven't you changed...I was sorting out some photo's yesterday and I came across one you sent me pre Mexico and when I think about that photo and I see you now...what a huge difference.


Plenty of fire out your way by the look of it, you will be pleased to be back in town for a couple of weeks off.


Take care

@LizK

Thats very true!

Thank you for sharing those photos Drexy, Yeah Nah you're much braver than me looking at that room full of guys...! LOL When I went out in public I saw a group of builders head towards the cafe I was building courage to go into and I was immediately like "NAH". Thankfully found a cupcake cafe to go to - way to prissy for tough tradies and the like....

Is that a wee little burnoff or raging forest fire? 

To be honest - its way more orderly than I had imagined...I had this picture in my head of hundreds of drunken louts herded around a dilapidated shed in the absolute middle of nowhere singing 'she'll be coming round the mountain...'  -- IDK maybe I watch too many movies....LOL

Take care,

Sonja.

its okay for me as we are are all in our uniforms 14hrs  a day.. we only change to get into the dry mess for dinner.

hahaha your idea of what its like cracked me up.... it used to be like that 30 yrs ago
bit more civilised now though the wet mess can get messy sometimes
the other day i went there to my usual table and a heap of new arrival rough necks were at the table in frt of me and i thought uh oh i better sit away from as i noticed a couple glanced quizzically at me.... then i thought nah so went to my table and sat directly facing. them so they  could see my qlitzy nails  😆😉

@Drexy/Drex

Drexy - You made the right choice, because, you never know if truckies and miners are killing themselves trying to guess what brand of glittery nail polish you're wearing and sitting far away makes it difficult and awkward for them to ask........

speaking of nails, my wife asked me to be the santa at her creche xmas party today and I couldn't say no to the kids. Anyway after getting ready at home and putting on a massive full on santa suit and driving to her creche  -hot as hell and steaming up my fake glasses. As I was handing out present to all the kids I realized my natural nails are super long atm (Cruella de vil would be proud), the kids probably didn't notice but the 40 or so mothers and dads also in attendance?........Hey I did ask my wife if I could go as Mrs Claus instead......but she laughed and said no - the kids are expecting Father Christmas. The kids loved it.

Finally back in Bangkok its the first time I've been here as me   and all somewhat sad as one of my close workmates was going to come over with me but he and another work mate were killed in a car crash on the  25th november its the first time someone close to me has died.... and as we are all a big family up at work it was a shock to us all
so unjust a testimonial to the randomness of life,  he was a good man  only young 34 so much to live for he knew me from the previous job we had been on and so witnessed all the changes but he never once looked down his nose at me..never disparaged me . always had my back.though i had not told him about transition he was smart enough to put 2&2  together.
great sense of humor he was the guy who asked the  big guy next to him in the mess what was his bear name was 😂 he was one of a kind larger than life character all
a person worthy of trust.
