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, […]

Nine years later

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 […]

Walking the line

Hello, I don’t know how many posts it is now, nor the years that have ticked by, but making the first mark on the page – so to speak – doesn’t get any easier. Lots of ideas and suggestions pop into my muddled brain, but it’s only when I take a deep breath, dive in and prattle away madly, like now, that I seem to be able to get going. Today I saw a poster about elderly LGBT people and their care needs. The poster had a snappy title about not wanting to go back in the closet. Getting old isn’t something I really think about, although, with luck, it will arrive very slowly and there’ll be a long, slow […]

Leaving the woods behind

Hi, It’s been a bit of an extended holiday for the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones and I. Last week, the Jones Massive were off Up North, to take in the wilds around Hadrian’s Wall and stroll about other fantastic ruins. We also found a number of summer activities put on by English Heritage. If you do have kids, these free events are brilliant. Hands on stuff such as digging for artifacts in a sand pit, Roman Soldier drill, or dressing up as fierce Vikings. Hopefully, the stuff holiday memories are made of. The extension has come is because Wee Man and Little Miss have been at my Mum and Dad’s all week. I guess it’s part of the modern life, […]

Mirror, mirror…

Hi, It’s Friday, so shall I try and get my sh** together this time? 😉 Last night was the first night out in a weeks. Well, okay, first trans night out, I should add. I was, oddly, not quite sure about going. Sure, I wanted to catch up with everyone, but it was the getting ready that I wasn’t really sold on. But, as I tell myself when I’m packing a bag, hollow point or subsonic match? No, ah, sorry, that’s the other blog. 🙂 Silliness aside, I tell myself, you’ll be okay when you get there…. which, so far, has served me well. It’s only been a month, or so, but it felt like longer. It did seem rather […]
