“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 […]

“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 […]

“Incase of upheaval, fundamental movement below,
What’s really going on I want to know,
But yo, we don’t show on the outside, so slide.”

Howdy y’all As I type, I’m somewhat full of a rather nice tea. That’s the second nosh-out in as many days. Not that I’m complaining, I should add. While it might not be so good for the waistline, it most certainly is good for the soul. For the first time in a while, myself and the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones were without the nippers. Wee Man was at a sleep over and Little Miss was at Granny’s. So what to do? Well, probably what most middle class farties do: to the gastropub! 🙂 Glib comments aside, we both had a lovely meal together. I was great not to have to rush back and just relax in each other’s company. It’s […]

“You gotta fight,
for your right,
to party”

Hiya, It doesn’t seem long since I was last here, typing away into the Blogger interface. Well, actually, that’s not strictly true. Some afternoons have dragged by slower than a double dose of classroom based dullness. No matter how dry work may get, there is still the option to walk off (mostly), so that makes it unlike double maths on a Friday afternoon. Sleep has been a little hard to come by this week. I have a very minor cold, but as the evil so-and-so has lodged itself at the back of my throat, I am now able to snore for England. That makes is less than conducive for a good night’s kip for me, or the Ever Lovely Mrs […]

“Now it’s the same room but everything’s different”

Hi, Blustery days – a la Winnie the Pooh – are here again. The clouds zip through the sky as if on some type of stop motion playback. Below, it’s a bit more sedate – even if somewhat windy 🙂 How’s things with you? Ticking along nicely I hope. This year – at least in the UK – it’ll be time for another census. How things have changed at Jones Towers in the last ten years. Before there was two of us and pets, now there are four of us and no pets. Come to think of it a few weeks, it’ll be the anniversary of me dating the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones. Happy days! I guess we’re a traditional household, […]

“Do you remember the good old days,
Before the ghost town?”

Hey, I trust all is well with you and yours, yes? It’s been a bit of a quiet week so far. Well, work has been busier than usual, but then I guess that is everyone getting away from the Christmas holiday feelings and getting back into the swing of it. Well, it is nearly February 🙂 Home-wise, everyone is well and truly on the mend. There is that old line “so long ‘as you’ve got yer ‘elf (health)“. Like a lot of well worn and well loved phrases, it’s true. After a dose of a bad cold, it’s good to be able to get up in the morning and feel ready to face the world. Okay, that’s not strictly true, […]
