My role as a design engineer let’s me flex my creative side now an then. I enjoy taking what is quite a boring shape or form and giving it a little pazazz.
I’ve always had an interest in illustration from old engineering journals and drawings to complex 3d images.
Someone at the group said something to me which was a light bulb found god sort of moment and for the first time I feel alive. I feel it’s right and meant to be. It’s an odd sort of emotion right now, not exhilarating like a fast sailing boat but calm and peaceful. I feel alive.
In Manchester this evening to meet with new friends at my support group called trans-forum. Run by a lovely and quite famous jenny Anne bishop. It’s a safe place to meet, talk and listen and always cake!
These things help me to learn and experience a better life outside in the real world.
But I might give it a miss today, gotta watch my weight now more than ever!
My waist size is 10 to 12 but above is 14 so I must be v shaped
