Extra strong for me please. new computer booking system at work is supposed to only take bookings to the amount of staff, unfortunately it thinks there are 2 techs and 1 mot tester when there is only 1 tech. We have 5 services, 4 mots and repairs as well as jobs running over. Pass the amphetamines !!!!!!!

Good news tonight, the first person aside from my wife that I came out to, name withheld as she isn't a member, told me tonight that she has been for assessment at Brighton and has a date for her GCS. End of October this year.

Wow, Wow , Wow.

I was so 'made up' for her it was quite overwhelming. Ive offered to driver her down there and such like, and help to look after her afterwards (she is moving into a flat as her wife is now starting to reject her, but she is a good soul like by many so she will be OK) if needs. I will pass the flat on the way into work so I can give her a wave from the car or a lift after recovery (she thinks 4 weeks but Id be really surprised at that).
Quite emotional and gave her a big hug (she is 2/3 of my size..).

Like so many others, but particularly her, she has helped me and talked me through a lot of stuff (as you girls do here as well), and made me think about stuff. She was the first one I went out in public with, then took me to Manchester a week before Sparkle and showed me the world wasn't as bad as my head thought (keep to safe places though)..

Anyway, I decided to show her a pic of me from 2 years ago and she was.. 'like what!!!'... Ill save that one for later on next year for you girls..

Phew, a big time for her and quite a quick resolution since her surgical review. And that got me thinking, the NHS has a problem seeing girls/boys  initially, but then seem to progress them faster after confirmation of GD and RLE etc. Its a front-end issue at the moment then, but also probably have a finite, and what I understand a reducing, number of Surgeons for this delicate work.

Anyhow Ill dwell on the lovely smile my friend has permanently attached to her face, and ill sleep well tonight on the basis of her reaffirming news (she is the only person I know that has had this news whilst I have known them, but there again Ive not been on my journey long yet..).

Sweet dreams, sleep well

Luv n Hugz

Katie

So working from home today waiting for the bathroom suite delivery. So its Jeans and casual top (heating is on as its cool and damp outside).

Already done 2 international Skype teleconferences... all quite boring but necessary.
I think I need another expresso …

I am very pleased to hear such good news about GCS with regard to your friend (although sorry her wife rejecting her) and remember YOU ARE ALSO a good soul for agreeing to look after her.

Hugs

Hi
OK here goes; as usual I was late getting up (start of a week on 'holiday', as builders are in for stripping and updating my grotty- you shower lying down- bathroom. Ill take a few pics of the shambles that UK builders quality standards are in - and mine is relatively new build.. 14 yrs old) so messed up nail varnish..

More importantly my longest road trip to a new friend to date (I don't know where the American girls get all their funds from to go galivanting around continents - Honeymoons aside..). It was worth it.

Arrived a little early and was ushered into 'Davina's Place' as others have been before, and was welcomed with a nice cup of tea (Im driving so no Gin ..hic..).

Cooking was on the go so I graciously accepted to watch whilst the wizard'ess did her magic and created a really lovely meal that was ,to me, a bit of a sensory adventure.

I cant even pronounce or even spell the starters or even a lot of their ingredients, so Im sure Davina will maybe help on that with a post... (help).

Mushroom stuff first with the potato and green stuff (see I am useless at remembering names) which was so absolutely delicious I took a pic of the recipe.

Followed by a lot (and I mean  a lot) of salmon fillets poached in an incredible sauce. MMMMMMM. Not tasted anything like that ever I think. Served with a split lentil and rice  (plus other stuff) side to soak up the juices.
I couldn't eat all of that, Davina is such a wonderful hostess, she even reminded me yesterday not to eat breakfast before (I just had a Americano coffee and cream..)..

So feeling like an over full barrel of such tasty morsels, we retired to look at  pics - we shared 'before' pics  - and my lips are sealed... -, and I so love the pics of the grandchildren (mine are a few years off yet I think) and Davina being the doting Grandmom - so sweet. Then onto other stuff, like boys stuff that girls do as well (well I do so that counts) for cars and bikes and stuff. Davina has a lot of hidden talents and is so much more than portrayed.

Finally found time to eat the stunning Indian pudding(?), so sweet and yet also so very well made, not hard but the right chewy consistency.. I'm so appreciative of the time Davina took to make that. (Note I took a doggy bag home but none of the sweet was in it !!!!... cant blame her really  ;D) - (edit; see next post..)

Then onto prep for the Birmingham weekend. Davina has a load of options as to what to wear and the impact she wants to make, and I think in all honesty more options than I do, so really looking forward to seeing what she chooses. Remember its all in the accessories...

Rapidly running out of time and Davina's BFF having been delayed and elsewhere I needed to shoot off, so final hugs and chats and I was on my way - to my sons postponed 18th birthday meal (another Indian but a take away, and to tell the truth no where near as tasty as Davina's).

Diet is so dead today, so a few days on boiled eggs I think..... maybe with a little touch of curry powder??

So Pics (saved to the end so you should have read all notes);

Chef;


Mushroom starter - you have to taste this - hopefully Davina pill post the recipe;


Main course of Salmon something (sorry, Davina help with proper description please)


And the dessert;


Finally, Selfie that for a change  got right with 2 gorgeous girls  having a good time;


I so love that pic.

So that's all - Im fat from 2 Indian meals in a day, Builders in tomorrow (I have stored all the wigs etc..)

Will post updates as and whem something interesting happens with the building works...zzz

Loved today so Much..

Luv n Hugz

Katie

Katie, I am so happy that you had such a nice visit with Davina.  Having recently been the recipient of a visit by a couple of members (Tia and Debi), I know how much fun it is for us to meet each other in person. 

My mouth is watering from your descriptions of the food, even if some names are lacking.  ;)

I love the happy pic of the two of you.

I have been eagerly waiting for your update regarding your visit with Chef Davina.   The pictures you posted are a treat for your followers to view... thank you for posting them along with your wonderful description of the day's events.

@Katie Jade
Dear Katie:
I recall seeing some "before" pictures that you posted some time ago... during the project and after it would be terrific to see what the builders have accomplished....  all it takes is money and time!!!

You sound so happy and bubbly after your wonderful visit with @davina61  ... it is so great to get together with supportive and like minded friends ... and it helps if they are good cooks too such as Chef Davina was able to prove to you.

Thanks for updating all of us....
Hugs,
Danielle

Hi Katie

That really is a big project but you seem to have made great progress with it. What a great job , I would never trust myself to be able to do that...I would probably break something....me!

We had our bathroom refurbished not so long ago and it felt like we were livin in a hotel there for awhile after...all we needed were the little complementary soaps and shampoo's LOL

I hope it turns aout really well...

Take care

Liz

OK pics of similar views to previous from todays work. Just final fix from the plumber sealing all the corners, and the Electrician to wire up the shower and safety switch and the job is a good one (Aside from new flooring and painting the ceiling..). Ill be glad when this is all done and I can go out Friday night and Sat all day... will be back to posting out of focus views of bits of my transition - yay.



The shower head picture shows the grey and pinky colour off as I see it. So nice. Also all the tools should be gone in the next and final pictures..

Talk soon

Luv n Hugz
