    Practice what I preach

    Well tomorrow is the start of 7 days all to me to be enfemme 24/7. Look out world here I come as they say.

    If you're a regular then you could be forgiven for thinking I'm one of those who's out and about all the time but in truth that's not the case. It's many months since I last went out dressed and I know come tomorrow I'll be sat dressed in a supermarket car park feeling as anxious as hell about stepping out that door. It's almost like I was back at square one again.

    In one way this is a good thing. It'll remind me of what many of you who are hovering on the brink of going out will experience. I'll be reconnected with feelings first experienced years ago.

    Once out and running, not literally, more a lady like stroll, normal service will be resumed. Clothing section browsed, breakfast, lunch and dinner sorted for the next couple of days, a chance for my first human interaction at the tills, no self checkout for this gal, all will be well.

    So today I'll be ordering some new shoes that I'll pick up in store in a few days time. A shopping trip traveling by train and bus all planned, I'm hoping the Queen film will still be on at the local cinema. Yep my days are fairly well planned out.

    In saying that can I take the opportunity to once more invite anyone who'll care to join me, and at the moment one other, for a chat, a bite to eat, a glass to drink and the opportunity to meet up with a few other CD'ers on Wednesday in Manchester's Gay village. For details see the post in the "Places to go" section.

    So wish me luck. Here I go, tally ho, tally ho!

    Helen,
    Shame we aren't a little closer I would happily join you for a coffee or a meal . The long breaks between your outings must be frustrating but could you or would you do full time ? It's great not to be a bag of nerves , in fact it's never been too much of a problem but laying those little gremlins to rest is harder for some , I wish you all the best , I'm sure you'll keep us posted .
    The real me ,no going back.

    Ooo, I've yet to do the 24/7 thing. And for a whole week? How exciting!

    Hope you enjoy your outing. Looking forward to the follow up report.

    Thanks all, I intend to make the most of my time.

    That said the point of the post is that even for those of us who have been out and about many times there will almost certainly be those moments were we experience those little demons whispering in our ears that the mob is hiding around the corner just waiting to pounce as we sally forth. Having experienced these moments of doubt on previous occasions I feel justified in my support of those teetering on the brink of going out and saying to them, just do it.

    I suppose I could have titled this post Ground Hog Day. The re-living of past experiences. It's true I can draw on those experiences and quickly move on but for anyone who espouses the virtue of getting out there we all need to remember that moment that took us from within four walls to flying free.

    Helen, I agree (well in my case anyway), that even after many trips out you can still get butterflies as you go to open the car door. Hope you have a great time in fabulous Manchester!!
    Here today, gone tomorrow....

    I feel bad for you, getting out so infrequently that each time makes you feel as if you're back at square one. I hope that situation improves for you, because it's a wonderful world out there when seen through liberated eyes, free of the apprehensions of the closeted. Good luck with future outings.
