I, Spy

Hi folks, Well, it’s been an interesting few days this last week. Interesting as in a rollercoast of emotions, which at least tells you are alive. Nothing serious, but I could have done without it, if I’m honest. To be honest, there’s a lot of be said about quiet. There are days when I think quiet is vastly underrated. 🙂 I think the stress comes in when you feel you’ve got a lot on. Things organised at work, which impact on what you’ve got organised at home and then things you’ve organised socially… well, you get the idea! Event I had the good fortune to attend a training event on Trans Policy at a local university. There were lots of […]

“Eleven. Exactly. One louder.”

Howdy folks, The other day, Sam was kind enough to tag me with Liebster Award thingy for blogs. Thanks, Mrs! Apparently, there are a few rules to this little game and they are as follows: Create a new blog post similar to this one. Start off by writing 11 random facts about yourself, and then answer 11 questions which were left for you by your nominator.   Then you can nominate up to 11 blogs and leave 11 questions for them to answer in return.   Don’t forget to link back to the blog of the owner who nominated you! Create a new post like this one? Check. Well, the link back to Sam’s blog is easy enough (and really, if […]

“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 […]

Madness takes its toll.
But listen closely…
Not for very much longer.
I’ve got to keep control.

Hi, When the river runs wild, there are a few choices: Stand tall and brave the rage of the waves. Brace against the worst and hope your feet are not pulled from under you. You can let go, follow the flow and try keep your head up. Or you can let it wash over you and pray for the end…. although I wouldn’t recommend the latter. I don’t know why I’m writing the above, but I thought it sounded nice. Maybe there’s something rattling around my subconscious at the mo. Whatever it is, it’s not coming to the fore. Anyhoo, the above was kicked off when I looked at my desktop’s wallpaper. Funny how inspiration strikes you. I mean earlier […]
