“The future us already here. It’s just unevenly distributed.”

Hi folks, It’s Friday night again and it being February, Winter is giving us a last hurrah before the gentler turn of Spring. Except this time around, Winter’s invited its best mates High Tide and Climate Change to the party…. and they’ve all been watching Changing Rooms with Keith Moon. This is not going to end well. 🙂 Floods Glib comments aside, it’s not to bad here. Yes, the wind and the rain are rather strong, but by no means are the Jones Massive – nor any of our clan – bailing out, or having to be evacuated due to flooding. I know it’s very British to talk about the weather, but there are times when there’s a point, rather […]

The Wrong Side of History

Hi, Well, how was your Christmas? I hope you had a pleasant one and that all went well. This year, we had somehow managed to duck much of the travelling and instead, the extended Jones Clan came to our little house. I could have said …on the prairie, but moor would be closer. 🙂 We are far enough out of civilisation to be in werewolf country, but at least it keeps the door-to-door sales people on their toes. So we swapped travel for the frenzied activity of cooking and preparing enough food. Honestly, I need to think about cutting down. Not only did I get a new postcode for Xmas, but I no longer feel safe swimming in case there […]

Eight

Okay, not me, but this little blog, here. Eight years? How my family, friends and life has changed since then. I’m now a father of two, there was only Wee Man when I started writing. Now there’s Little Miss and they’re doing well. They make me so proud.The Ever Lovely Mrs J continues to get more lovely and life is good. Sure, there have been some ups and downs along the way, but so it goes. Not much more to say really, other than, thanks for reading and here’s hoping for a few more years yet. 🙂 Lynn x

“All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world,
So there was only one thing that I could do…”

Hi, Today I have – in the words of Jessie’s Diets – been in a buoyant mood. I think that may be due to a few lucky happen stances, a good night and just life in general being good to me. Even the Friday morning meeting slog didn’t dampen my spirits. I must have been really annoying to work with today. 🙂 Lies, damn lies and statistics I’d like to say a big thank you for those of you who keep coming back, reading and commenting on this little blog of mine. Just this week the stats crept over the 100,000 mark, so thanks everyone. It’s very much appreciated. Chocolottery In terms of little fortunes coming my way, while Chez Jones has yet […]

“Me no fear the reaper.”

Hey all, I seem to do most of my blogging in one of two places. At home, where I’m sat comfortably in a large leather chair, tucked away upstairs, but not quite far enough away from the Skype based yells of glee from Wee Man and his on-line gaming buddies. Failing that, at work with a personal laptop late on a Friday. Friday afternoons are funny things. Well, they are to me 🙂 There’s that element of excitement that it’ll be the weekend soon and speaking personally, I find something rather magical about Friday nights. I guess it’s the idea that it’s a gateway to the weekend. So currently, I’m sat at work looking out of the dark glass into the […]
