“We’re pretty, a-pretty vacant…
And we don’t care”

Howdy all, I think it was around Tuesday, possibly mid to late afternoon, that I found myself thinking about wanting to feel pretty again. To our non-trans reader(s), that may sound a bit odd, but then I’ve never found the whole trans thing to make any particular sense. 😉 So after a good six weeks or so, the Trans Force returned. Not with a bang, but the gentle nudge of be nice to stretch those legs and make an effort, no? Despite being unable to shift the holiday induced spare tire, or so it felt, I packed a bag – with just the one outfit mind (Ed: another first?) – and headed off to Chameleons. Despite a little issue in […]

“And every kid on the whole damn street,
Was gonna make it big and not be beat.”

Hiya, There are days when ideas for a post, or perhaps even just something to talk about, come thick and fast. The thing is though, it’s not so much the raw generation of ideas…. well, actually, that’s not 100% true and I dare say that if you’re like me, you look out of the window, sigh to yourself and wonder how you’re going to fill the white space of the input form. Okay, moving on from that, if I do have something to discuss, it’s how to start it. Sometimes I get hung up on just saying hello, whereas other times – like now – a stream of consciousness bursts forward to fill the t’interwebs with fluff live and direct […]

“Would you have liked a present too?”

Hey all, It’s a well worn phrase around this here blog, but this week really has gone by in a flash. I *think* I can remember Tuesday starting and suddenly, it’s Friday night. I’m sure it won’t be long in that I’ll blink and Wee Man will be visiting with his grandchildren. 🙂 It was the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones’ birthday just the other day and that, of course, meant shopping for pressies. Funny, but I do tend to worry a little when shopping for others. Yes, I do buy my nearest & dearest a fair bit, but it’s not a scatter gun approach. There is a method to the proverbial madness: keep an eye on what they’re using, listening […]

“Nice day for a… white wedding.”

Hello dear reader, Unlike last week, I have managed to remember what day I usually post on. 🙂 With all these holidays, my internal clock is a little all over the place, but it’s been so nice to have the time off. Easter, then Bank Holidays, a day off and today (of course), the big event itself. Don’t worry, I won’t go into in-depth sofa-eye-view of Kate & Wills’ wedding. The media reporting got on my wick a bit and if I’m really honest, sort of put me off a little. Still, sat on the sofa with the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones, we watched the church service together. Kate’s dress was lovely and I wish them well. Talk about media […]

“Sleep is not my friend”

Hi, If there was one underlying thread this week, I guess it would be tiredness. I don’t think it’s a lack of sleep per say, moreover, the lack of the right type of sleep. I never said I wasn’t a fussy so-and-so. 🙂 While my cat powers allow me to sleep pretty much anytime and anywhere, I guess a full night’s sleep without the audio terrorism by snoring’s causing would be helpful. 🙂 Maybe I should be going to bed earlier, but there is only so much time in the evening and I guess I’m guilty of burning the proverbial candle late into the midnight oil…. or something like that 😉 So, Chams this week and a party night at […]
