I'm not a selfie queen. I don't normally like to look at photos of myself, let alone share them with anyone else.

And yet...

My therapist told me I need to take selfies, if for no other reason to document the progress of my transition for myself. And that I can just keep them locked away in my photo library.

And yet...

Sometimes I look at these very unremarkable pictures and feel very "meh" about them. Or I frown in disappointment. Because I don't see the girl. Or at least a girl that could be described as even a little bit pretty.

And yet...

I'm showing you a no-makeup, messy-haired selfie taken from the closet mirror of my poorly lit home server room while wearing my go-to daily outfit, skinny jeans and a not-very-femme T-shirt.

Why am I doing this?

Because this time I did see the girl. And she actually seems girl-shaped. And happy. And I don't think she'll frighten small children.

So, there ya go, now you know what I look like.

Be kind, please.

@lisa you look like what you are: an attractive middle aged woman. Not a girl. A mature, beautiful woman ❤️

@lisa darling, i'm 61 and I call myself old, but you look a good 20 years younger than me, so you can have the 'middle-aged' as a freebie :)

Couldn't find the plastic tub I use to wash the weavings and realised it's hidden because my father has emptied a lot of garden pots into it.

Wot, me, stressed? Nah, I wasn’t the one bursting into tears when the receptionists at the told me I was there for a “periclean” appointment (I had psyched myself up for my routine 3 month clean, polish, fluoride- 3 months because ) - I ended up saying through tears “I’m autistic, please don’t suddenly spring changes on me.” Turns out it was the new dentist (mine’s on mat leave) saving me money through the system. And everyone was very kind. Might be , eh?

Good Morning Tiny Dancers. My email this morning contained a keyword alert for my town which tells me... my cafe is on the market.
This is not a surprise, Sam has been wanting to move on for a long time, but I'm very sad about it. I shall try not to cry on him at lunch today.

I used the contact form for GWM to ask a question about the Ora we’re considering, and got a call back from some dill at Village Motors Northlakes who said he was ringing because “a girl” wanted to know something. I nearly hung up on him. Instead I told him that I’m not a ‘girl’, asked the question, then hung up.

How to lose a customer in one easy step. If I’m old enough to buy a car, I’m not a ‘girl’, and I am almost certainly older than this idiot. But to him, women are all children.

@olav no, i'll go to another dealer. I've written to tell GWM why, too

@tyno You can download a brochure from the gwm site, that details the four models. Is that what you mean?

The vehicle is in stock all over, so you just need to find your closest dealer
