Review – Tights

Hi, A few weeks ago the Ever Lovely Mrs J mentioned a firm to me called Snag Tights. They are very much not a ‘one size fits all’ company. Instead, they offer a variety of sizes for the long, the short, and the tall – as someone once sang. Intrigued, I thought I’d have a look at their site, and maybe invest. Now, official disclaimer time: I don’t work for the company and I’m not getting any freebies for posting this review. My aim here is for you lovely readers to avoid wasting your pennies on badly fitting tights. We’ve been there, right? Too tight, rough, long in the wrong places, short in others. Sometimes you carefully slip them on […]

Teamwork

Hi, Not a holiday, but certainly a long weekend away from the red tape machines. A glorious five days off for the Jones Massive. Okay, four for the kids and an extra day for the Ever Lovely Mrs J and I. Sure, the pay ain’t always great in the public sector, but the holidays make up for it. Clothes A shorter week meant Thursday was soon upon me. I still find it a challenge to work out what I’m going to wear. It’s not that I’ve nothing to wear, as I’ve got a fair few items that have built up over the years. Originally, I used to buy things I like in the moment, as it were, but now, I […]

Gorillas in the Midst

Hi, Ah, the weekend is almost upon us. Well, it is at the time of writing. Little Miss is busying playing on her brother’s Xbox, while Wee Man is having a sleepover at Granny’s. That just leaves the Ever Lovely Mrs J to be provided with hot tea and quiet, while she reads. Me? Oh, I’ll while away the early evening, enjoying a gin, a quick blog entry and and editing a photo to fit this post. Earlier in the week, I was working from home and I had a long lunch, so I could visit a local wig vendor. I’ve been after a new do for a while and despite much research online, I’d not come any closer to […]

Personal choices

Hi, It’s been one of those quiet, yet busy weeks this time around. While not much has happened, work and home life have been a bit of a blur. The Ever Lovely Mrs J has been away for work, which means Yours Truly has been wearing the parent hat full time. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to do so, although it did mean I was a lot more tired than usual. I suppose it’s the mix of an earlier start – to make sure Wee Man gets dropped at his friend’s house – and then the rush through work, before it’s time to pick up and make the tea. How do working women manage eh? With Mrs J away […]

Tea + biscuit = brain power?

Hi, After last time’s memory fail, I thought I’d sit down and get some ideas out of my head early on. I don’t know about you, but if I’m a bit tired, it’s the wrong time of day, or I’m hungry, my brain just seems to pack in – at least, from a creative angle. Okay, you could look back at those as a triumvirate of excuses, or I like to think that they’re things to be avoided if I want to Get On With Stuff. Making a Stand Given that, I made sure I had a good strong brew and a biccie – surely the fuel of the British! – before I got the Chameleons leaflet business sorted out. […]
