That I introduced myself...
In the three years that I have been writing this blog I have never had an avatar other than Red from Fraggle rock. And I have never posted a picture of me either. When I started writing it I could not afford anyone coming across the blog and realising who I was, so a fraggle avatar and no pictures was the only option.
The other problem with having a picture of me anywhere is that I hate them! And I really mean hate them, most of the time I feel physically ill when I see a photo of myself. This goes for before as well as after I transitioned - that is something that has not changed too much in the last 10 months!
At least normally! On the company weekend that I posted about a few weeks ago one of my colleagues came around with his camera and was taking shots of everyone. One of them had me in it, and I absolutely love it!
I am not sure if it's the too large glasses and the witches hat covering my face.
Or the fact that I had rushed a large glass of wine shortly before the picture so that I relaxed a little.
Or if it's just that I'm smiling naturally and actually look genuinely happy in a photo for once.
What ever the reason, this is me :)
(Don't get used to it though... The chances of more pictures of me appearing are not large!)
