I felt a need to get some things down in writing, so I thought I’d post a quick update on things.
I realise that many of you will find this post a whole lot of nothing, and it probably is from a readers’ perspective – not that anyone’s felt a need to comment on anything I’ve put up lately. If you don’t comment I won’t know what you like or hate about my ramblings. So I will continue to just knock this stuff out as I see fit – not that things would change much if there were tons of comments because I find it good therapy to write these things down.
I while ago I posted a blog asking why things were different this time around. Well, the extended period of dressing is still going on and I still have no explanation. I am no more stressed than I usually am at work or in my personal life, so it isn’t some kind of sub-conscious way of dealing with that.
Also, I may have made it sound like I wasn’t enjoying it, when the reverse was true – I’ve loved every minute of it. I guess I had just become used to that old pattern of a few weeks every couple of month.
I bought a new wig and several new outfits during October. It’s amazing how different one feels wearing a new wig – it really does make a world of difference! It’s made the last few dressing sessions a lot more enjoyable than they would normally have been.
One thing that has come out of this is that I am no longer just satisfied with being stuck indoors. However, I am finding it extremely difficult to find the courage to actually get myself through the front door. This is yet another strange trend because I have been out many times – just for a walk around the block. Nothing too strenuous. So I was a little unnerved when I got to the door, car keys in hand, and stopped dead. I was terrified.
Obviously this is the next thing I need to work on!
Anyway, aside from these turmoils I’ve had some great experiences whilst shopping in drab – I’ve related one of them in a previous post but there were others. For example, in Boots just this past Thursday afternoon I went to buy some false eyelashes, some makeup brushes and some makeup applicators. I got to the till to pay for my goodies and the lovely lady there asked if I’d seen some of the makeup kits they had in and actually suggested a particular one. She was right, it was fab so I bought that too!
