“Hello, good evening and welcome to nothing much.”

Hi folks, Welcome to another dose of the irreverent – and many would say, irrelevant. 🙂 Fatal mistake that. Pausing to think. Well, not so much if you’re about to cross the streams or cut the blue wire (Ed: no! the RED one!!), but personally, from a blogging point of view, it tends to make me….. …. stall. To many brain cycles (#nerd) wasted on thinking what I should put, rather than just getting on with it. Think is, there’s not been much going on. I do wonder why you come here to catch up. But then, when I read some of the Name columns in the paper, I wonder why are folk paid to write this? 😛 Not Investing […]

“Hold your head up, keep your head up, movin’ on”

Hello, Where to start? Shall we go with the good stuff? Reasons to be cheerful, eh? The Jones Massive have now returned from their short half-term sojourn to the wilds of the West Midlands. Five lovely days with zero mobile phone access, a bit of WiFi for anti-social media, one too many pub lunches and much walking of the hound & kids. All of the latter rest far easier when they’ve had a long walk. Likewise for No So Little Miss Tubby who’s currently hammering the keys. 🙂 Yes, it was a much needed and much enjoyed break. It’s funny. I often get a little tense about going away. I guess I’m a creature of habit. Yet, once I’m there, I’m soon […]

“I’m chasing down the wolves to save you.”

Hi, Today’s post will be a bit of a flying visit. It’s been a busy week and with us having half term on a jolly, it’s all systems go. So, why am I updating a blog? Well, I like doing it and as I can grab ten minutes to upload a few thoughts via mobile, why not. It keeps me happy. Which brings me on the current struggle with the lack of medication. I had thought about starting the post with there’s a war in my head, but A) that’s overly dramatic (even for me 😛 ) and B) it’s not true. It’s more like my mind is a tumble drier set on non-crease. Just when I think things are […]

“I’m my hair, I am my hair,
It’s all the glory that I bear”

Hey all, I’m not one to wish my time away, but I am glad this working week is over. It’s been a bit…. well, not stressful, but more a bit like herding cats. The old cliché about A Lack of Planning On Your Part Shouldn’t Constitute An Emergency On Mine. However, as we all know, things don’t work like that. You’d think, as a group of folk, allegedly heading in the same direction – from a business point of view – that we’d have picked this up as a good idea. Nope…. 🙂 Oh, minor news item: work was flying the QUILTBAG flag this week. I don’t think much is planned, which is a shame, but early days. At least it got […]

“Can we all slow down and enjoy right now,
Guarantee we’ll be feelin’ alright.”

Hi everyone (including Coconut-Men, Moon-heads and P.) I guess you can say I’m very much back in the saddle… and much as it’s well worn and familiar, there’s a significant reticence in wanting to do so. I think the best I can say is I was at work physically. 🙂 How was the holiday? Glad you asked. 🙂 Oh, and thanks for the well wishes BTW. Two fantastic weeks somewhere in the Med with no mobile telephones, computers or work. Just me, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones and both nippers. Wee Man’s swimming has come on so much. It was a joy to see him swimming out into the sea (Ed: and making it back). Little Miss, well, she’s as […]
