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 […]

Brief Moments

Hi folks, Two quick shout outs today. Firstly, congratulations to Lucy on reaching their thirteenth blogging anniversary. Well done indeed! 👍 Also a nod of thanks to Calie and co over at T-Central for their continued work in bringing that big old blog list. Finding a post pointing back to this little old blog, well, it raised a smile and made me think of the good work that’s done over at T Central HQ. In other news, I ordered a dress last week. I think it’s my first purchase since lockdown began. I happened to be looking online and my dear wife, the Ever Lovely Mrs J, asked what I was up to. I have a thinking face and I […]

Winging it

Hi, A few weeks back, I was listening to colleague talk about their worries. It wasn’t long before they mentioned Imposter Syndrome. Perhaps you’ve had a visit from this irksome whisperer: they will find you out, they know you don’t know, everyone’s on it except you… It was mentioned in the Chams forum by Midnight, and that jogged my memory of the above. Like many folks, I’ve felt the proverbial whisperings. When I’m writing this stuff, when I’m working with the team at work, or when I get ready in Lynn mode. Before heading out, my hand has waivered by the handle: am I ready to face the world? or who am I to lead a talk on being trans? […]

Prepared

Hi, Thursday was a small island of calm in a far busier than usual week. Due to the fall of some meetings, I decided to pop into town. I had a few things to do: banking, pick up some items for the Ever Lovely Mrs J’s Mother’s Day gifts from the kids, and I took a chance to get some new foundation. Town was very quiet – even for a working day – and the car park near the centre was far emptier than I was used to. It would be both a cliche and incorrect to say it was a ghost town, but parking was certainly a lot easier. So it is that the Coronavirus – and the preparations […]

Dressing up as a bloke

Hi, A somewhat odd title given that in many ways, I’m a bloke. Well, at least physically. Socially, mostly yes, but in my head and my heart, it’s a little more complicated. If you’re reading this, either you’re very lost on the Internet, researching something, or you may have a similar situation. 🙂 Earlier in the week, I was involved in some formal doodah that required the wearing of a suit. Oh, not a Birthday Suit for those of you who’ve gone there and, frankly, shame on you. 😉 Glid comments aside, there is something about these outfits that make me feel rather uncomfortable. It’s a bit daft as, well, it’s trousers and a shirt. No big whoop there. Perhaps […]
