    I Don't Feel Like A Very Good "mother" Sometimes.....t

    In fact, I am hardly one at all sometimes. When Miranda and Al had their engagement party about 4 weeks ago, it was the housemate's mother who brought the mower round and mowed the grass for them.  It was this same woman, not me, who took MIranda shopping and bought her...

    I Think About It A Lot..........

     ........and I used to get very depressed about it. When Miranda first told me that she had started taking the transforming hormones, it was probably about three months until I was able to tell anyone at work.  My Team Leader found me alone out in the tea room one day...

    I Received A Letter This Morning

    from Miranda's father, my ex husband John. I don't know how long it would have been in that mailbox, which only ever receives junk mail, everyone else knows I don't use that one any more. But he's been trying to get in touch with me all week on my mobile phone, which hardly ever...

    I Never Thought That I Would Be Mother Of The Bride

     Well, I went out to the kitchen with the best intentions in the world of baking some biscuits to take with me on the round of calls I am planning to make this afternoon.  I made a start, truly I did but I was thinking about Miranda and Al so much that I couldn't...

    I Knew It...

    My oldest, child, on paper at birth was female. At the age of 13 he realized that he was a boy. Everyone was shocked. Except me. I didn't consciously know that my oldest was a boy, but I was not at all surprised when I found out. I always said when I was pregnant that i was...
