    Nice dress ,, I wore  one quite similar for my daughters wedding. Mine was slightly longer and more flared (it was a rock and roll wedding) but I have to say I put a belt on and it really did finish the dress off..

  • For me its easy. You are who you perceive yourself to be and who you present yourself to me as..

    As long as you are an honest and kind person ( I dont mean about your birth gender just generally) I dont give a flying fig about what you do, dont, or used to have under your clothes.

    Anyone looking back over my old posts might be able to see that I…[Read more]

  • Shoot me if you like but… Why?

My children called her auntie and she came here on holiday (free) every year.  I went to her wedding 4 years ago even though it meant me travelling abroad to do so.
