All good? I hope so. I’m a bit tired at the mo, but hopefully a cup of hot tea and a sit down will fix that. Sometimes, it’s great to be British. No need of Redbull or Pro Plus, just a few quiet minutes and a hot beverage. 🙂
This week has been – dare I say it (Ed: dare! dare!) – fairly quiet. Quiet is not necessarily a bad thing. As a friend said, you get to take stock on what’s come before, to look back and enjoy the memories. I caught up with a few emails, messed about with Flickr and made a few changes on the group’s website. I also had a wade through some of my own history: a brief tour of my old posts. Somethings I don’t remember, others very well. Maybe that’s part of the fun of keeping a blog (or diary), to jog the slowly slowing neurons of what has passed before.
Anyways… on with the show… 🙂
That said, both the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones and the nippers have not been 100% this past week. A dose of some bug laid both girls low – that’s Mrs J and Little Miss – I may be but a part-time trans person, but I don’t classify myself as a girl. 🙂 Wee Man shrugged it off very quickly, so he was spared. Good for him. By some strange quirk of Fate, I too dodged the infected bullet and got away with just looking after them both. Still, that’s what husbands and dads are for right?
On an aside, when does it stop being a girlie night out and become lady’s night out? Answers on a postcard to the usual address… 🙂
Caring dad/hubby duties over with, slowly but surely, everyone returned to full health. Yay+ ! :)The week rolled ever onwards and it seems the only break in the routine was when I met up with a fellow blogger for a spot of lunch and a chat. ‘M’ is sometimes in my neck of the woods and it’s not too far to pop out, grab a sarnie and talk about this, that and the other. Cake was nibbled, sarnies scoffed and coffee & company enjoyed. I’ve just got an email from M and that did perk me up some.
The only bit of vaguely related trans news were the boots sported by one of the mum’s on the school run. Most folk are understandably jeans + boots or work-wear. One lady had on a pair of calf height lace up boots (with a half folded turn up at the top). Okay… Plus chrome stiletto heels…. and…. teamed with black fishnets. I’m not saying she didn’t rock the look, but even I thought it was a bit much for dropping the kids off. I wonder what she does for a living… and how much her feet hurt? 🙂
It’s Valentines soon and while I’ve got a card stashed away, I do need to pop into town to get a present. Just something simple and I’ve got a few ideas. Now why is it that the small things seem to cost the most? How did that happen? 🙂 Of course, it would be rude not to pop in to New Look and check out what’s new wouldn’t it? 🙂
