I had an appointment at the Gender Identity Clinic in Edinburgh earlier and things didn’t start well as I had got the time wrong and arrived an hour late.
Fortunately I was still seen, and just as I was leaving the clinician said to me “You’re looking really super anyway.” Given how stressed out I was feeling this was so good to hear, and it gave me a boost.
I hadn’t had time to put any lippy on before going in to see him, and had no makeup on at all, so before I left I headed for the little girls room, put some my favourite lippy on, and generally checked that all was in order. I also had a new pair of sunglasses with me that I had bought recently and, with it being such a bright and sunny day, I slipped those on as well.
I had only just left the building and turned the next corner when a voice from just behind me said “You’re looking nice!”.
I turned to look at who had spoken, and a hippyish woman of indeterminate age between 20 and 50 was smiling at me as she crossed the road.
“Thank you!” I beamed at her. “Thank you!”
That’s the first time a stranger has said that to me in public and it totally made my day!
I’m seeing Jenny at 4:30 to get my makeup done for tonight, (see the previous post), but I’m already well made up!! 😀
This is a good day!
