Heels, hemlines and hopes…

Hi, My brain is all of a spin at the moment. It’s been a little full on at home and that’s even with leaving work slightly earlier than usual. There’s no major drama going on – thankfully! – I think it’s more just one of those evenings where it’s 60mph all the way until after tea. Then we’re into teeth brushing, PJs and story time. I also had a surprise visit from a friend, Sophie, who was in the area. Having not been 100% well, she missed the Chameleons Xmas Do (more on that in a bit), but didn’t want to miss saying hi before Christmas and returning the favour with the festive gifts. I’d dropped mine off last week, […]

To travel in hope….

Hi, According to the Blogger Challenge I signed up for, this time’s chat is supposed to be around New Beginnings. A brief spot of family news before we move on the main course, as it were. 🙂 Wee Man has finished his first week at big school. He’s doing okay, and I’m proud of him for being brave, doing his bit in getting up and – to use a well loved 90s phrase – getting his sh** together :-). There was a minor incident between from kids who thought they’d try it on, in winding Wee Man’s best mate up. He stepped in, gave them some serious – and rather witty verbal – to send them packing. Good on you, […]

Six to eight weeks

Hi, All is quiet in the Jones Towers…. Little Miss has gone to spend the evening at Granny’s, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones is playing a treasure game on her laptop and – oh, there goes the peace – Wee Man is playing some type of Zombie apocalypse team shooter. 🙂 Me? Oh, I’ve sneaked upstairs to (p)rattle off another weekly post. Some of you may have read about or maybe tagged in the No Make-Up Selfie meme that’s going around Facebook. It’s all in a good cause – well, two in my mind. Helping to raise much needed funds to fight cancer and, also, showing people what others look like sans make-up. There have been a few discontents muttering, […]

Mojo

Hey, How time passes eh? Well, unless you’re waiting for a download, the kettle to boil or a politician to get to the point. 🙂 The Jones Massive have been away and returned. All went very well. Both The Ever Lovely Mrs J and the nippers enjoyed the holiday. Just a little cottage in the north; we’re easily pleased. In fact, the lack of wireless probably helped. I certainly caught up on my reading…. and eating. Maybe another week of watching what I eat and walking more, will be a good thing. Still, lip up, eh, fatty? 🙂 I’ll be honest with you and say not much is going on at the mo – at least, from a trans perspective. […]

“I am the god of hellfire and bring you…. fire!”

Hiya, After an unusually productive week, I’ve a bit of a spring in my step. Top that off with the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones has surprising me – via the middle class telegraphic system, Facebook 🙂 – that our new fire has arrived, I’m feeling particularly chuffed. Now, I don’t mean, a small lump of fire arrived in the post. That would be a bit odd. Obviously. 🙂 No, the new fire grate, log basket et all turned up. Bless her, she and the nippers put it all together, so all muggings here had to do, was light it. Thanks to various happy holidays, fire-making is one skill have just about got the hang of. Now, I do love a […]
