My transition is going really well & my health is improving rapidly thanks to the wonderful support I have received.
Initially I had wanted to help out 24/7 this year but unfortunately due to my other current commitments, realistically, that is now going to be impossible.
I do not wish to resign but for the sake of my family, my health, my self esteem & our continued friendship, I need to be careful how much I take on. With that in mind I sadly needed to request a reduction in the time I will be able to spend helping at the exhibition. I have spoken with a dear friend who is a diplomatic Angel about this situation. She helps organise the tasks usually assumed to be best suited to females. What sexist bunkum. In reality we all like to help each other & often do. We live in an age of equality but some jobs are in an old fashioned kind of away, adjudged female & some male at our exhibition. How it hurt to always be assumed to be male & on the wrong side of the playful banter between the sexes. Not this year. Not any more. Yipeeeeeeeeee!
