The sum of our years

Hi, Once more into the Blogger interface, dear friends, once more….. and then…. your brain goes… meh. At least, that’s what seems to happen to me. Some days I’ve got loads to say and other times…? Well, it takes a little while for the old noggin to wake up. Ooo. Listen, what’s that? Sounds like the 8.48pm train from Ideasville calling in. Interviews It’s been an odd week for interviews. On the one hand, I’ve had the good fortune to have a telephone interview with an agency. They rang me up after seeing my LinkedIn profile. Honestly, does anyone have a LinkedIn profile for any other reason than to pimp their CV and hope to get head hunted? 🙂 I’m […]

Under the bridge

Hi, Not a reference to the rather good Red Hot Chili Peppers, nor the shambolic pop mauling from All Stains – sorry, Saints. 😛 As I made my way to Chameleons last night, so I drove under the new bridge by Queen’s Medical Centre. It’s been a while coming and as I’ve sat in traffic on the way home, I’ve watched it be slowly assembled and now, it straddles the dual carriage way, ready to take the next phase of the tram from the city out to Clifton. It’s nice to see the money I’ve been charged for being able to park at work on land the firm owns, put to use 😉 I would have liked to have taken […]

The Case of the Irish Jig

Hi folks, Working weeks, sometimes they can be busy-busy-busy can’t then? So it seems also true of home, and also trans-life too. On Wednesday I’d managed to swing working from home, so I could get my head down and actually get Stuff Done. You know how it is in the modern open plan office; more noise than a room full of reporters and a soon-to-be-sacked politician. I also had booked the afternoon off so I could collect Wee Man and Little Miss. Sometimes, the Ever Lovely Mrs J – who, truth be told – does the longer part of the child duties (the afternoon), but if there’s something on she can’t miss, yours truly takes a turn. Wee Man also […]

“RSPC Everything”

Hi…… …. and a deep breath to relax. Hear that? That’s the end of the week. Not a particularly taxing one, but one that’s left myself and the Every Lovely Mrs J at Tired Station, waiting for the last train home. So……? Shop In the absence of Go Go Enhanced Gender Fun Time – a.k.a, cross dressing – I had a small shopping trip today. I spotted some cute shoes, well, cute IMO, at Dotty P’s and I felt the need to wander lonely as a chap through the rails of fancy female fashions. I guess in days gone by, I would have picked up a pair, looked about furtively and then scurried off to pay. I say this next bit with […]

“Donald, where’s your troosers?”

Hi folks, I’m posting a bit later than usual as I’ve been messing around with the Facebook code within the blog. I guess I just got my geek on and got lost in the idea of finding out who was hitting the like option. Ho hum. Something for another day perhaps! Maybe it would just have been easier to ask, but never mind eh? 😉 Shop Earlier in the week I had the good fortune to finish a little earlier than usual. I’d gone to a customer site and having made a bit of progress on what the problem was (Ed: some IT thing. Just don’t ask, ‘k?), I wasn’t going to make it back to the office to do […]

“It’s The End Of The World As We Know It
(And I Feel Fine)”

Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land,  Argh, brain freeze. 🙂 Where to start? Well, it’s been a pretty good week, all things considered. The weather’s been good, the nippers have kept out of trouble, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones hasn’t been over-worked and apart from a slight issue with the hound, all is good. Oh, and it’ll be about a week or so, since I reduced the anti-miserabalist tablets and dare I say (Ed: Dare! Dare!) that so far so good. All in all, it’s been rather quiet and relaxing. So there’s not really a lot to report! 😉 Given that I’d not been shopping for sometime, I decided to invest in some rather nice leopard print peep-toe heels. A […]
