The Shift

Hi, There are times when I come to write something, that it feels like driving in fog. A glimpse through the mist on what I was looking for, only for it to slip from view, appearing only when I stop looking. But, maybe it’s my age 😉 This weekend gone the Jones Crew had the pleasure of not just a day out, but a meal in a restaurant. I know, I almost say it in a hushed tone. 😁 A country pub miles from anywhere and while not a usual haunt, certainly a place we’ve enjoyed in the past. With social distancing in place, there were slightly less tables available, but we know it can get busy, so booking was […]

Catching up

Hi, Tonight will be a short post because… I’m just knackered. 😁 I’ve had a run of long days and today is my first day off since… quite possibly February. That does seem a bit too much of a gap, so managing to align work diaries with the Ever Lovely Mrs J, we’re having a long weekend. We decided to take it easy with opting for a walk in the local forest. There’s something about the quality of the light, being in nature, and not hearing the drone of cars, but of distant birdsong. All of that helps recharge the proverbial batteries. Mind you, so did the afternoon nap afterwards 😉 L x

Creatures of the Night

Hi, I don’t know if it’s something we’ve learned, a habit, a biological quirk, or a mix of the previous, but I think I can safely say the Jones family are night owls. Obviously, not in a literal sense given our swooping and hooting skills are seriously under spec 😁 But, given a choice around waking up or being off work/school, and we gravitate towards longer evenings and shorter mornings. I’ve heard people say ‘oh, you miss the best part of the day’. For some that maybe true, but getting up with the lark is not my bag. One of the good things about the working from home situation is avoiding the morning rush. No longer do we need to […]

Remedy

Hi, Ah, the end of another week and an evening of promise as we slide into the weekend. Hello Friday, you wee minx. Last year the Ever Lovely Mrs J signed the Jones Crew up to a streaming service. I swing in and out when it comes to music. A long orbit that sees me move between the void of silence, to a deep dive through the variety of noise and sound that is modern and old. There are certain tunes that run through me. Music that makes me want to get up and move. To feel the energy held within and to get up, dance, and be lost in the freedom of just enjoying. The way the growling roll […]

Protection

Hi, One of the things you have to do as blogger, is empty out the spam bin. The refuse and dregs. I’m hoping that the business is all a scam I mean, is there an office someplace in the sketchy part of town? Badly lit and wedged between a takeaway that lives in fear of a health visit, and an unknown shop hidden behind a graffitied cheap steel shutter. Imagine going in and taking a look at the special offers. Hey, look at this. They’re offering to put a million plus emails out… Oh, uh… The small print says that the AI systems will stop most and… Wait is this right? If my message does get through, it might be […]
