Great cricketing news

Yes, a treat for some, no mention of transgender matters here lol!

Though I was actually born in England (though those that see Yorkshire as an independent state might say otherwise), I’ve always been proud of my Irish ancestry, and among many things, my sporting favourites do tend to wear green quite often. And given cricket is my favourite sport…

As cricket followers will know, we beat Engand at this years World Cup, much to Irish celebrations. But shortly after that tournament was over, the ICC in their ‘infinite wisdom’ announced that the 2015 version would just be the 10 test playing nations, despite the fact that we’re ranked above Zimbabwe, and as to when they last played a test….

Campaigns at Facebook and elsewhere started, even amongst the big 10, especially their players. So the ICC started to backtrack, and lo and behold, today they have announced it will be 14 teams taking place, not 10. We might still have to qualify, but at least we’ve a chance, and thats all we wanted.

Great news!

Is it just me reading this?

Oh come on, if anyone else is reading this at all, please let me know!

Well, unless you work for the biggest bane of my life, aka First Trans Pennine Express, and then maybe its better if you dont lol! The only things I see them first for, are overcrowding, unpunctuality and inflated fares btw.

I would admit that perhaps there is one possibly non-girly thing about me, a great love of cricket, especially nowadays, Irish cricket. But hey, no one’s perfect lol!

My main regret in life, that I didnt discover much earlier just what was wrong with me physically, but things pre internet were a lot harder to discover back then. I should have known, I always grew up singing the female parts in songs (Carpenters, Abba, New Seekers, Middle of The Road) , so maybe should have realised then, but… ah well…

What do I do, other than work, and watching cricket? Or as I work in a sports related industry, both at the same time… I like to travel, North America mainly, I like to read, and in the past I used to write as well.

Any reader intrigued yet, or all asleep? Lets wait and find out!

An introduction piece

Not that I suspect I will get many readers of this, but lets give it a whirl anyway!

So who am I, someone may be asking? Well I’m a pre-op TS, who wont see 50 again. Plain, quiet(ish) but finally in the last couple of years or so living as a woman, and its the best thing I’ve ever done in life.

I know, some have this image of T-Girls as highly sexed creatures who wear mini skirts and high heels, and set out to outrage people. Me, just the opposite! Think more dull 50 sonething housewife type, and you’d be closer to the mark. And generally my clothing style veers more towards demure than sexy, but thats just me. I dont set out to shock (too much) the poor people of West Yorkshire, generally my look outside is female, but definitely more tops and trousers than flowery dresses. At home its more girlish, but as I say, plain and simple look, not sex kitten.

Any readers left, I doubt it lol? But at the same time…I do like to tease people’s perceptions…

So yes, I use nail polish, and agreed, I’m not flat chested (B cup(ish), not saying which side of it though), and do stroll through town wearing a top that shows off my cleavage, especially when summer is around. I’m lucky, my hair is still a decent length in front, though a fringe wig might be tempting at times, but I just go with my natural hair at the moment.

Yes, work knows, and as far as I get told at least, they dont mind in the slightest, many of them very supportive in fact. Nearly all, if not all of the callers I get at work think I’m a woman anyway! I’ve done the formal name change, am actually a Ms, albeit with a part a Ms shouldnt have lol! Yes, Stevie Lou is a get out clause, but saves hassle with idiots. Anyone who wants to formally call me Stephanie Louise is free to do so, but Stevie Lou is designed for peoples comfort, all the same.

Yes, you’ve guessed it, I’m not a militant, in the face T-girl, just the opposite in fact, I try to pass as a woman, and leave it at that. I want to live, and be treated as an equal of ‘real’ women, not as something special in all honesty.

Like any woman, I love being pampered. Facials, massages and the like are wonderful, and waxing I can survive too. Hair lasering isnt so bad now either, now that most of the hair is gone anyway! So if anyone wants to spoil a single, assexual lady, I can tell them where to get me vouchers from lol! Shoes and/or clothing sizes, you need to ask! 😉 But I’m more Primark than posh stuff anyway!

I’ll see what reaction this gets as to what I post next. There are a few interesting things about me, but lets leave them quiet for now.

Over to you folks now, best wishes,

Stevie Lou x
