An important step

I have been working at home this week on a significant piece of paperwork, so it seemed like a good moment for my work collegues to find out.....

On Tuesday a 'Dear Colleagues....' letter from me was left in all the pidgeonholes at work and the Head of the Admin called the support staff together to tell them my news.  I am told that there was a fair amount of surprise but nothing other than sympathy......, and a desire from the female staff to ask some 'technical' questions about transition that the Head of Admin (male) did not feel competant to answer......

Since then I have had a steady flow of supportive e-mails and calls, just lovely.  It is wonderful to be 'out' with my work colleagues, who are my friends as well.  Such a relief.

I am out of the office on Monday but will be calling in at the end of the day and now only feel a trace of nervousness about breezing back in.  At least I won't have make excuses about the bags from Hobbs I am seen with occasionally....
