“You may ask yourself, ‘Well, how did I get here?'”

Hey folks, I am glad it’s the weekend – and a long weekend at that. Let’s hear it for bank holidays. 🙂 If there’s one word that could sum up this week, it would be: frantic (Ed: “like Harrison Ford I’m frantic”? ;-P ). One of those weeks were the work levels increase steady and surely until you’ve got more plates spinning than… umm.. someone who spins a lot of plates for a living. Still, it could be worse, I could be bored and that’s awful 😉 So work is building up (again), although I did get some feedback on the job I didn’t get. A few things to think about. Perhaps ironically, improving my communication skills. It seems I’ve got […]

“Bridges I’ve been dreaming, are going down,
They’re changing my future.”

Hey all, Today, I wanted to write something positive. To be the bearer of good news or a good gag. Neither are in abundance right now and this annoys me. What I want is to be rid of the darkness that tumbles within my head. It robs me of interest and joy; a fug through which I see the world. Disconnected. I have an appointment to see the quack – sorry, doctor – later this month and I think we were going to talk about coming off the happy tablets. Thing is….. I don’t think I’m ready for that. Not yet. Whatever’s lurking in my psyche, it hasn’t gone away. Sure, the treatment has helped – hell, I’m still here – but […]

“Get up, come on get down with the sickness”

Hi, How’s things? Seems I’ve been at home more than I’ve been at work week. Mind you, is that really a bad thing? 🙂 Little Miss wasn’t 100%, so I was house husband / caring dad for a few days. It was rather nice, even if she’s now spread the love. Ah well. 🙂 That probably explains why I went to Chams in bloke mode. Funny, I had been looking forward to going and I’d had a few thoughts on outfits. Yet, when push came to shove, I’d sort of lost interest. That’s one the great things about going out regularly; the fact that I know there will be other times. Besides, I’ve got some more leave to take before […]

“In Number 69 there lives a transvestite,
He’s a man by day, but he’s a woman at night.”

Hi, The week gone has been a bit unusual. For a start, the house has been only half full as both the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones (Ed: TELMJ?) and Wee Man haven’t been in. The latter was visiting his cousins and, as I write, still is, while *ahem* TELMJ is making her way back from a week long course somewhere down south. That’s left me holding the toddler, so to speak. That’s been nice, lots of father/daughter time: plenty of cuddles, a few books, an occasional snack and the odd tantrum. Her, not me, as way of a change 🙂 I think we are coming out of the Terrible Twos, so Little Miss’s language has really come on. I’ve really missed Mrs […]

“You can fight the sleep but not the dream”

Hi everyone, This evening I’m unusually tired and for that reason, and hopefully that alone, I’m a little out of it at the mo. With luck, a good night’s kip will set me right. But, it is Friday and Friday night is blogging night. I suppose in some odd way, I have my own personal deadline and if I break it, I wonder if I’ll get out of the habit of regular writing. Well, lets see where this week’s stream of consciousness takes us then eh? 🙂 Health – or perhaps more accurately, head-wise – I’ve been pretty good. I think the malaise over the last day or so is just tiredness. Nothing to panic about and really, would panicking […]
