I couldn't solve the electrical problem, but I did have the afternoon to look forward to.
My original plan was to get changed at my customers business premises as I was not expecting anyone to be there, but when I got there a couple of staff had come in to see customers and tidy up some paperwork. I was able to slip on my undergarments in the loo but that was all. Everything else had t be done in the van. This is never easy or elegant and it is difficult to emerge cool and presentable. I think I managed reasonably well, and told myself that since I was going to be publicly declaring myself as a cross dresser by my presence at the ceremony it was more important to present myself well than to blend in. As I know a couple of the girls are quite tall, and the weather very mild I thought I could "get away" with wearing a pair of my Roland Cartier open toed pumps with three inch heels my new "Next" grey check dress, this is quite short but I think rather elegant, and of course a coat.
So duly dressed and preened I drove into Croydon, there is a car park in Croydon which will allow Gloria in so I parked up and climbed out, and caught me watch strap clasp on my tights! Regardless I carried on and met up with Helen, and Roger the organisers of the event. We all met up in the Clock tower Cafe, before going upstairs into the Library for the ceremony
