A rather last-minute decision but I also joined close friends in the Lake District for the best part of a week. Plenty of exercise, peace and quiet and lots of food! Although I went in male mode, because of my tiny feet (size five and a half!), my walking boots, shoes and socks have to be women's ones anyway (shame, eh?) and they got a good workout. And my female friend Carol knows all about my Sue side now and was so supportive. I know you will look at this blog, Carol, so thank you for your friendship and understanding. It's no little thing to have good friends who can take a big revelation in their stride and be encouraging and kind and ask intelligent questions and make thoughtful suggestions.
So that trip was great. Now I am planning my trip to Sparkle next week and the lunch there I've been asked to organise. Got a mound of stuff to do beforehand, though. Starting with that broken tooth which I got repaired this morning. The anaesthetic is wearing off now!
