“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 […]

“If only for today, I am unafraid…”

Hi folks, Only a few more hours until the big day eh? Excited yet? Panicking over those last minute gifts or reading up on tomorrow’s massive cook-a-thon? That was ‘cook’ by the way and nothing rude, but lets move on eh? :-)I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope that 2011 is kind to your and yours. If Christmas isn’t your bag – socially or religiously – then happy holidays if nothing else 🙂 The presents are all wrapped and stashed. The TARDIS like fridge freezer is packed with goodies, ready to be baked & primped as the hordes descend tomorrow. I’ve had a large G & T  (Ed: hic), so it’s time to finish off […]

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”

Festive greets! 🙂 I hope all is well with you and yours. All sorted on the shopping front? Personally, I’m done. The Jones Massive have pulled together – no, not like that – and the present cupboard is fuller than Jordan’s bra. Present-wise, there’s lots of stuff for the nippers and quite a lot for Mrs J too. I guess I like to spoil all of them and it’s only money right? It’s just the wrapping to get out of the way and I’m not really looking forward to that. 🙂 Still, on with a few choice tunes and just get stuck in. I had the good fortune to visit a friend during the week and in addition to lots […]

“And you will be so happy to know,
I’ve come alone, it’s over.”

Hi, I’m a bit stumped on how to start this post. Not through any requirement to put out a massively important message, I guess it’s just breaking in the white space. Did you ever get that feeling when you got a new exercise book at school? That first sheet was somehow sacred because it was unmarked and full of what might be. Then again, I may just be being a bit of a mentalist. 😉 Anyway, let’s start with some good news shall we? As way of a change 😉 Whatever synergy it was that’s sent the old Black Dog on holiday has kept working its mojo. I’ve felt… well, just kinda normal over the last few weeks. Okay, as […]

“Look at you now, look at you then, see how you will be”

Howdy, Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land. All sorted for Xmas yet? I braved the shops the other day (with assistance from Little Miss – who slept through it – bless!) and got a few more gifts for all and sundry. I was amused to hear Radiohead’s No Alarms being played in one of the shopping malls. It’s a great track and makes a change from the usual Xmas numbers they wheel out every year. Clearly, if you want to retire in a good Rock & Roll home, right a popular Christmas track! With our new arrival I do find myself thinking more about the future. Or rather, the kids’ future. What will the world be like when they […]
