I first blogged this in February 2014. I am reblogging it now as I want everything about me in the same place. I realise that my Tumblr account has become almost exclusively “likes” and “rebloggs.” This actually follows on from my first post on here which you can find here: https://charlotte-j.co.uk/2014/04/07/2/ Seven years ago myContinue reading “On Fancying Men”
I published this article, written by my daughter, some months ago. At the time I commented that, although it saddened me that she was unable to truly support me, I was very proud of what she had written. However, in the light of recent events, I have been wondering how to respond to her, showingContinue reading “A Commentary for my Daughter!”

I have my next meeting at the Gender Identity Clinic on Thursday! Yeah, gulp. How does that make me feel? Anxious, divided, undecided, excited, shaky, positive, disloyal, over joyed, frustrated, negative, …… You get the picture! But surely this should be a good thing. This is what I have been looking forward to, working towards,Continue reading “To Be or Not To Be (Me), that is the (toilet) question!”
I have an appointment for the Gender Identity Clinic on Thursday (January 30th) at 1:30 PM! Resolution 2: tick Now Resolution 3 is urgent!
When I was a child I wore pyjamas. It was what you did! We often got them for Christmas, all three children with a different coloured pair. I hated them.
