Helping in little ways

Hi, After a week or two of zero trans related activity, two things come along at once. If it helps, feel free to imagine a pair of Clapham omnibus rolling in. Tickets ready? Ding ding! 🙂 Bus 1 Earlier in the week, it was time for a training event in Nottingham. I’d arranged it some time ago and managed to squeeze it in my lunch hour. I try not to swing the lead too much when I’m at work. I may not have the best record for timekeeping, but I like to think I put my all in when I’m in. Well, that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it! 😉 I called just before setting off to make sure everything […]

Recharging

Hi, Earlier today I was out at lunch, walking through the leafy suburb of West Bridgford. Given that it was Chameleons last night (woo!), I make the short journey over in the car to pay the group’s money into the bank. Not that the walk lets me people watch and chance to pop into my favourite fancy sandwich shop. I should add this is *after* I’ve paid the money in, not before. 😉 As I walked back I stopped by a jewelry shop to pick something up for the Ever Lovely Mrs J. Give it a few weeks and we’ll have been married 20 years. I don’t say this as a brag, but with thanks and gratitude. I’m thankful for […]

Fun raising

Hi, Funny how life goes sometimes. A few months ago, I was rather busy at work, rushing to various presentations and finding the day zipping by quickly. At home, things were calm and yet, a few weeks later, matters have swapped around. Last night we ran a StartUp September event at Chams. This was part bring & buy, to advice session. Along with a few others, I think I was on my feet (in heels) for two, possibly three hours (Maths isn’t my strong point. Ask me one on accessorising 🙂 ). Perhaps I should have gone with the slightly lower posh office style shoes, but hey ho, lessons learned 🙂 I’d bought two boxes of clothes, shoes, jewelry, and […]

Today, only the sky is blue

Hi, As I drove to work the other day, the radio presenter was waxing lyrical about the new Apple smartphone and it’s unlocked using a view of your face. I was perplexed in as much as my old droid phone had this a while back, how well does face recognition work when you’ve, ahem, two appearances? 🙂 Also, politicians, usually two-faced; how do they manage? 🙂 Sometimes, I wonder about reverse image searching or facial recognition. How hard is it to spot the connection between Richard & Lynn? One’s just a fancy outfit, slap and a wig from the other. But at the same time, I think if you worried about everything, you’d not do anything. Anyhoo, I switched off the […]

Found my smile

Hi, Last night’s visit to Chams was just what I needed. Funny isn’t it, how just a few hours as you (or more accurately, all of you) makes so much difference. Firstly, a note of thanks to those of you who asked after me. Either via PM, email, this ol’ blog, or face to face. Secondly, an apology from me over the somewhat darker tone of late. How can I put this? I had the most excellent holiday with my family. Some travel, a variety of hotels, great food, beautiful scenery, and many days together, rather than at the colouring in department. What’s not to like? 🙂 /sighs I can’t put my finger on things exactly, but my guess would […]
