Merry-go-round

Well, it seems Cinders will not go to the ball after next week. Yes, another change in the social rules by our dear leaders. But don’t call it another lockdown 😛 Remember: back to work, proles! 😉 As much as I understand it’s for the best, I’m a little frustrated given we were back on course to restart the group meetings. A number of our members were keen to see this restart, so we will have to make the best of it. At least we can manage a six month catch-up before it’s time to put things on hold again. L x

A look back: September

Hi, The sun sets on the long break and it’s back to school. Bah humbug. Ah well. Hopefully it was fun while it lasted kids. Talking of going back, another month rolls by and it’s time to take a flick through the posts of September’s gone. Compared to the heat of summer, this first step into Autumn is when I seem to come into my own. L19: A trip out to talk to a youth group about trans identities. In a rare twist, I’d gone in Lynn mode and my abiding memory – other than how accepting and interested the staff were – was how at ease I felt. It was… very natural. Perhaps just a regular person running an […]

Binaries

Hi, Every now and then, the journaling app I use, tries to sell me a few extras. There’s no adverts in the actual application because I’m happy to pay a small monthly sum for backup and suchlike. The optional extras only appear when you go looking in the coaching or life goals areas. With that in mind, this popped up: Mornings are extremely important as they are the foundation from which the day is built on. How we choose to spend our mornings will influence how our days will be like so start your day right! I have a bit of an issue with that pitch. It’s not wrong per se, although I think that’s a view of the world…. […]

As far as you need to

Hi, Earlier in the school holidays, some of the Jones family headed off to one of those forest high ropes courses. Ah, the things you do as a parent to keep your kids entertained eh? 😉 Luckily, or perhaps, unusually, the British weather was dry and not too hot. The issues I have with the above – climbing activities that is, not our children 0or the weather 😁 – is twofold. Firstly, I’m okay on a dog walk, but if the Zombie Apocalypse requires a lot of clambering about, I’ll be in trouble, being somewhat of a duffer. 😉 Secondly, I’m not good with heights. There’s something about being high up that just does not do for me. Even in […]

The Costa del Shed

Hi, I’m having a week off at the mo. No last minute commute from the kitchen to the laptop. Instead, a later hour and a leisurely breakfast with the Ever Lovely Mrs J. After that, perhaps a morning stroll with the hounds while the coffee kicks in. With things being as they are, this will be our second break and a staycation. We’re not far from the back to school week and both kids seem to be happy in their rooms. Gaming, watching YouTube, talking to their mates, and sometimes all three at the same time. I’m enjoying a break from the routine and while I like a change of scenery for walking and to wake the mind a little, […]
