Hi, Larks, it’s a bit late. Still, that’s the penalty for staying up, to watch a film with Little Miss. Usually, she’s tucked up in bed before 9, but tonight, being a Friday, we’ve let her stay up a little. Mind you, she’s another year old – 8 now – and full of character. She certainly knows her mind, when it comes to picking her outfits. No idea where she gets that from 😉 Leggings and an old fave.Thanks to Val for the snap. Last night’s meeting went well and we had quite a few new people come along. As per, the regulars mingled and said hi, so – well, I hope – that no one was left high and […]

Hi, I’m not one for a midweek post, but today, I think I’ll make an exception. Ten years to this day, I started this blog. 2own OCTOBER 2005 So, welcome to my little spot of the t’interweb – soon to be filled with occasional guff and nonsense. I’ll be straight with you (heh – straight*) I’m curious as to how long I can keep this blog thing going. Will it disappear by the end of the year or take longer than that? Hmmm… we’ll see. [ * note to self, don’t laugh at your own jokes – it’s naff. ] One small step for a trans person. One, more upload of guff to the Interwebs. 🙂 Looking back to 2005, […]

Planning

Hi, In an effort to get a little more exercise, and to get our two lovely dogs to be a bit calmer, in the evenings, I took them out on a walk through the local countryside. Sure, we may not have a regular bus service, any local shop and the Internet connectivity could be a little zippier. But, the scenery sure is nice. Nothing but fields, rolling hills and woodland. Yay for autumn. Cool weather, the leaves begin to turn and we begin the slow trip through monthly celebrations, as we move to Christmas. All, reasons to be thankful. The wood now has had a new public footpath put in, so we’re legally free to wander through, and down across […]

Tick tock, tick tock

Hi, Last week, another year on the clock. Oh, don’t mention clocks: this could be a terror threat. 🙂 I did wonder, skipping back those *cough* 40 odd *cough* years ago. What was it like for my parents? Okay obvious joke, probably agony for one of them 😉 Did my Dad rush in from work, or had he been there since the start of labour? I may have to ask. Skip on a few years, and a remember visiting my Mum, after my little sister was born. I also remember Dad taking us to the local toy shop (there were two in our little town). For some reason, he bought my sister and I toys. How this helps to adjust […]

Hi, Once more into the Blogger interface, dear friends, once more. I could continue to torture that fine piece of English writing, but probably best not too. 🙂 Holiday I’ve missed a week, given that the Jones Massive were away on a much loved holiday. A week away over half-term, somewhere up north and on the coast. Very windy, rainy and somewhat cold to boot, but that didn’t put us off. I over pack for Thursday, so we’re not short of coats and waterproofs. However, my T powers must have been a little off, because the Ever Lovely Mrs J had to nip in and by some extra scarfs and gloves for us all. Still, brief periods of horizontal rain […]
