“He’s trying his best to understand the ’cause of his dismay”

Hi, Today’s post is a bit of a tough one to write. Not that I’ve run out of stuff & nonsense to chat about, but…. ah, you’ll see in a mo. I had thought about talking about careers, jobs and progress, but I guess I’ll save that for another day. It seems that…. and how I hate to say it, I’m in danger of slipping back into sharing company with the Black Dog. It is not, all encompassing, but it is there. Y’see, I do and don’t want to talk about it. The don’t comes into it as I don’t want to allow myself to be defined by this, nor do I want to feel as I do. Additionally, I am […]

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both.”

Hello dear reader, Well, I have faffed and messed around this evening. Hoping that by the delay, I will be blessed with a visit from the Muse – from a classical sense, not the band – and something interesting would pop into life between my ears. That hasn’t happened. 🙂 I did toy with the idea of leaving today’s post until Saturday night, but I have a feeling that the same thing would happen again. I guess that’s how blogs wind down, not with a bang, but a whimper and all that. I should add that I’m not thinking of giving up just yet. When I do get my head around blogging, I do enjoy it. I’ve met some interesting […]

“Don’t step out of this house if that’s the clothes you’re gonna wear!”

Hi, Cross out another week on the life calendar, I’m almost done. Well, done for the working week, not done for life – that would be a bit of a downer…. I mean, I’ve got a holiday booked later in the year. 😉 The start of the week was quiet as I was working from home. Part of that was to catch up with things I couldn’t do in the office. Simply too many distractions there and being at home, well, sometimes it’s just easier. I suppose in days of yore, I’d have been all dressed up and tapping away at the keys quite merrily (oo, office chic!). This time though – and with Chams around the corner – it […]

“Yep, I’d rather be called deadly, for my killer show-tune medley (Thank you!)
‘Cause way down deep inside, I’ve got a dream.”

Hello dear reader, How are things on Planet You? Matters at Jones Towers are a little chilly; not from the emotional view, but the physical. The Jones Mansion is undergoing renovation work – an extension to the Polo Lounge (!!) – so we’re without windows in certain parts of the house. Just the gentle breeze and occasional clap of canvas. Still, with luck, the builders will be back in to fit the necessary parts Saturday morning. I’m willing to forgo a Saturday lie-in for the sake of being able to feel my toes when I’m in the back of the house. 😉 Earlier in the week it was the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones’s birthday and armed with a shopping list, […]

“We’ll take our hearts outside,
Leave our lives behind”

Hi folks, Not only is it the weekend, but here in the UK, it’s a long break two: the Easter Bank Holiday. Well, for those of us who don’t have to work it. The Ever Lovely Mrs Jones was rather clever when she planned a short break for the Jones Massive, so we’ve had a week away and now we’re back to a long weekend. Just time to cram in the usual stuff of food shopping, dog walking, child entertainment, family visits and – if we’re lucky – a decent amount of laying about, reading books. I’m hoping there will be quite a lot of the latter. Ahh, setting my sights on the dizzy heights once again eh? 🙂 The […]
