Six months later

Hi, In usual YATGB style this will be a bit of a ramble around the subject. Ah, if I was to be paid by the word eh? 😉 The other day, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones said that her mum was thinking of visiting, but was put off by the drive. For the record, Granny J lives north of the city and we’re very much on the southern edges of the county. We had a conversation about how when you don’t do things regularly when you do need to, they become a bit tricky. Tricky as intimidating, worrisome, etc. So it was that on Wednesday evening, I was in a bit of a dither when it came to packing my […]

Renew

Hi, Due to a small and welcome windfall, I bought a new dress and heels this week. The shoes were a small eight so they will have to go back. That’s what I’m trying myself, rather than saying a wide nine may have been a wiser choice. Still, no need to worry about car parking, just a trip to the Post Office and they’ll go back without fuss. I am hoping that somehow, all will be well with a Thursday night out. It seems an age since I dressed and I am slightly nervous on the organisation of the night. That and, will I remember how to do my makeup or style my hair? Maybe that’s just the nerves talking. […]

Hot and cold

Hi, Crikey, it’s Wednesday already. I hope the half week has been kind to you. I’m conscious of the old advice that no good story starts off talking about the weather. But… 😉 We had a brief hot spell due to air from the tropics visiting our western European climes, but we’re now back to jeans and boots weather. On that note of the turning off the weather, so too does the Trans situation seem to be warming back up. With the shorts packed away until next year, I’ve plumbed to reach for the epilator and bring the old Wookie pins towards their should-be appearance. Well, IMO. 🤔 My jeans move differently against my skin and I’m reminded that – […]

Hi, So, no midweek post on Wednesday. In truth, I forgot what day it was and I think sometimes it’s good to take a break from the routine now and then. Oh, and a note of thanks to those of you who commented or emailed in. That was kind of you, so thanks ♥️ Over lockdown I’ve tried to set up virtual meetings for Chams folk and it’s generally a dedicated few who log in. It’s not been on for the last fortnight due to holidays and whatnot. Thursday night was the first time in a while to get together. Well, virtually speaking. I was surprised how just listening and talking with other T folk – Midnight plus a special […]

Remedy

Hi, Ah, the end of another week and an evening of promise as we slide into the weekend. Hello Friday, you wee minx. Last year the Ever Lovely Mrs J signed the Jones Crew up to a streaming service. I swing in and out when it comes to music. A long orbit that sees me move between the void of silence, to a deep dive through the variety of noise and sound that is modern and old. There are certain tunes that run through me. Music that makes me want to get up and move. To feel the energy held within and to get up, dance, and be lost in the freedom of just enjoying. The way the growling roll […]
