Returns

Hi,, Earlier in the week and having saved up my pocket money especially, I thought I’d take a punt on buying another pair of shoes. I liked the look – good job, otherwise it would’ve been a daft purchase 🙂 – and felt confident, given a previous pair was both a lovely style and comfort. The latter two things are not often said about heels. Thanks to the luck of a day on my own, I was able to wear them for more than five minutes and I think, they will now be going back. They are a little too short in the toe box 😟 So, even sat down, I could feel my big toe against the end of […]

Numbers

Hi, Another midweek post? Well, why not. It’s not like we’re getting out of the house 😁 Yes, it’s been a rather lovely long weekend at Jones Towers. I hope you had a good break too. Given the change in the weather I decided to buy some new sandals. Not fancy ones, but some bloke ones. I did get 20% off which I cool, so I’m waiting on the delivery. I did look at what was on offer in the nicer rails, but given the lockdown and a wider collection of heels, wedges, ballerina pumps, and boots: I decided against it. Excluding some garden wellies, I think I’ve got three pairs of bloke shoes. Some ankle boots, a pair of […]

A series of fortunate events

Hi, It’s been a bit of an iffy week if I’m being honest. A right old riot of negative emotions chucked into the tumble dryer and given a long spin. At least, that’s how it felt. I should stress – and we may come back to that word -that it wasn’t anything serious. It was, what I like to call, some Work Toss. Things that really don’t matter in the big picture, but that somehow get under your skin. I guess, and maybe like a lot of folk, I don’t like doing things I’m clueless about. Yes, I’ll try leaving my comfort zone, but heading into something I just don’t get (like maths or the offside rule) really isn’t my […]

Funshine

Hi, Despite somehow catching a cold in summer and the lengthy downpours, the British Weather is having a final throw of the dice for sun, wispy white clouds, and pale blue skies. Put away your opaques and boots, break out the sandals and fancy tops one more time 🙂 For whatever reason I had a sting of dysphoria at the start of the week, resulting in a shoe purchase as medication. Like many material purchases, it’s the search that distracts, not the purchased goods. I think I know that you should aim for experiences, not possessions. Still, when you’re on the work-home-work-home treadmill, sneaking in some T time isn’t always easy. It seems that in times of dysphoric dissonance, I fall […]

Post

Hi, If there’s one thing blogging has taught me, it’s that I can’t predict what people will comment on. You may think that after bashing away at the keys, at least weekly for the last ten years, that I’d have more of an inkling…. But, no. So, I’m curious, when you don’t comment, why is that? Dad Duties This week gone I’ve been holding the fort as the Ever Lovely Mrs J has been away on business. Granny J has been over to help pick the kids up twice, as that’s really helped. Especially as work has become rather busy. Still, at least the day goes quickly. So, no visit to Chams this week for Yours Truly. I did wonder […]
