Yesterday (Wednesday) was a good day, the visit to my hairdresser was very nice, I like what she has done with my hair it gives me the confidence to go out without wearing a wig, I don't know how long I will be able to keep doing this as my hairline continues to travel in reverse, so I want to make the most of it while I can. We also began to get to know each other a little better, finding that we both have teenage daughters and are both musicians. I also found out that they have at least one other customer like me, presumably a local but not a member of our little group in Croydon. This reassures me in my assertion that there are a lot more of us around than most people seem to think, I am probably more unusual in I playing the Tuba or that I used to be a front row forward than for being a cross dresser, but I suspect I know which would get more attention in the Pub.
I am often surprised by how readily I am accepted, certainly while I am paying people for their services it is in their interests to accept our money, but I have found the vast majority of people I have come into contact with accepting and understanding, and many sympathetic. Of course it is rarely commented on, after all we are English and that would not be polite.
Anyway I liked the haircut and had the confidence to go out without a wig, as far as I am concerned this is a big plus on comfort while a relatively small diminishing in any anonymity that a wig may give me. I suspect I am quite recognisable to anyone who knows me and looks either way. I had time to pop home and repair my rather poorly done nails before setting off to get the train up to town.
