Something feels like it has shifted. I'm not going to get over-excited or ahead of myself - I'm just going to let it settle and see. Perhaps talking to people other than a Head Doctor about details (and that detail I hadn't even told a Head Doc) was part of it. Perhaps my Silent Time has also helped - seeing things move by without me and noticing nothing changes, well ... except there are more periods of silence. Heh. I think also that this busy day has helped. Very tired now but satisfied.

Woke up late so couldn't get public transport. I knew I had a full day and could stay on schedule as long a I reached the first appointment on time - so I fronted up for a taxi (eeps - $55 of taxiness ... a little more than the $3.20 PT woulda cost).

But - worth it, because I got there. Had a Head Doc session; another IPL session on the face;more work on eyebrows AND added an eyelash tint. Hehe - it is noticeable, given the 'quick glance and look away' ratio I go for the rest of the day. Hehehe. Then I hit the offices of the Registrar General.

I have my name change docs all submitted and should get the result in mail by Tuesday - Wednesday at the latest. My new full name? - Kate Sylvia Elizabeth <last name> (Hey, gotta suppress the last since this is a public to all post).

So yays for full days and the gentle foreboding of emotional calm.

Yay for the new name! How did you choose those (if I may ask)?

Kate was first to settle. I tried wearing Annette but it didn't fit. Then I just had Kate 'arrive' in the head and it felt so me :)

Losing the old middle name has been harder that the first, because it was my father's name. I didn't want to lose the connection to him, that social decent thing, so I took the first name of his mother (Sylvia) who I admired very much. Again, it felt right.

Elizabeth is very recent, only started musing upon it in the last few weeks and made the final decision today, when filling out the form. It is my Mum's middle name. Whether she wants to accept all this or not - in time, or not - and whether we part or reconcile things, I'll have that much of her to hold on to.

Quite simple really :) - Oh ... ahem ... and look up the meaning of 'Kate' in a name dictionary - hehehe. I love that part :)

and I'm so pleased about the emotional weather forecast: hope it's calm for a long, long time.

Exercising your right arm (well, what I do to hail a London black cab) once in a while may be expensive but is quite nice.

My next laser session is Monday, and now I have discovered EMLA and clingfilm, I'm quite looking forward to having the little bastards zapped...

Kate is just... I can't put my finger on it, but it seems a comfortable name without being dull. Elizabeth is a family name on both sides of my daughter's family - we wanted to add it into her name after we'd registered her birth but left it too late to alter the original birth certificate - suppose there's no harm in changing the name at any time, eh?

Anywayyyyyy... glad to hear you're calm and balmy.
