How’s things with you? Stuff here is… is better than it was. The earlier part of the week was not so good. Oh arse. I was hoping not to write about this type of stuff because it’s all rather negative isn’t it. Rough with the smooth I suppose. 🙂
I think that’s the difficulty with a blog. Okay, they say ‘write about what you know’, or in my case, perhaps what’s going on on Planet Jones. I guess the down side of that is that when it gets rather personal and heavy going, it doesn’t really make for fun reading. But equally, life isn’t all smiles and happy stuff. Some days things don’t go so well and you just have to make the best of it. Plus, there are only so many times you can say “there, there, there” without it sounding like you’re stuck in a loop – ditto from this side of the screen 🙂 I don’t want to write about being upset or unhappy…. Really, I just want to get back to feeling normal.
So, taking about feeling normal, there have been some good points to the week. Firstly, the mad panic project at work wasn’t a mad panic. No-one “crossed the streams” so we’re all good. Any IT work that doesn’t involve a full restore and hoping the back-up tapes hold out is a win in my book. 😉 Wee Man did well on his School Report and he had a great time at his birthday party a few weeks ago. Little Miss, I can’t believe how much she’s grown up. She’s on her way to being 3 and both her – and her brother – are a delight to take to the park. I think it’s the reckless joy they seem to have. The Ever Lovely Mrs Jones is hanging on in there, she’s been there for me and I don’t know what I’d do without her. The weather’s also taken turn to a more traditional British summer – as in, it’s raining. So good for the plants, water supply and it’s no longer baking hot. Good stuff.
For those of you who went to Sparkle, I hope you had a good time and I’ve been reading the posts about it here and there. Did I miss going? Yes and no. ‘No’ because if it was important enough to me, I’d push and make the effort to go. But, being a Dad, I like my weekends with my family and being away for the whole weekend would be too much. I guess I’m a cake-and-eat-it kinda guy. 🙂 Besides, that weekend felt far too hot to be glamorous. 🙂 So a nice to have, but I guess if you don’t know, you don’t miss out on it.
While not quite in the same as the Sparkle event, there’s the Summer Party next week at Chams. I’m looking forward to that and with a bit of luck, the weather will remain cool and it’ll be a good one. Stuff to look forward to eh?
