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 […]

A series of excellent events

Hi, The office is quiet at the mo, and I’m sat listening to birdsong with forest sounds on my headphones (Noisili). I’m feeling rather relaxed, although the large cup of tea probably helps along with the stillness. This week, it’s mostly a good news situation. Midweek Midweek I met with Joanna, a representative from the Womens’ Centre, to find out more about the funding we’ve been working on. That’s gone well and I’ve a bit of paperwork to fill out, to get things going. I think we may be in the final furlong, to coin a phrase.

We’d thrown our Autumn party and despite a fairly quiet turnout, all went well. Sadly a few key folk were on holiday, but you can’t have it all! But, there was food aplenty, dancing (well, for three of us!) and a quality […]

If music be the food of love… get me a bucket.

Hi, Poptastic On the way to work I was listening to Radio 4’s The Reunion. For those of you outside the UK, Radio 4 is part of the BBC and it’s talk radio. Not so much speak your brainz phone ins, but interviews, book of the week and other such stuff. Oh, and comedies – either plays or panel shows (yay! News Quiz). None of this modern popular beat combo nonsense, that’s for sure. 😉 Anyhoo, today was a programme called The Reunion, which – perhaps somewhat obviously – brings people together after a long period of time, to discuss and comment on a historic, or social, event of yesteryear. Today, was the Hit Factory. A team of three gents […]
