“I’m on my way from misery to happiness today”

Hi, Come on brain, wakey wakey, it’s time for another blog post. Ah, perhaps leaving this week’s post until so late in the day – and after a late night – was not such a good idea. Okay. Note to self: prepare before hitting the keyboard. Yes, I was out late last night. It was time for Chameleons, so it was off to the Centre to meet up with the great, the good and the gorgeous (luckily, most of my friends are all three). It was my first trans night out of the year and given that I’d missed the post Xmas do, it was good to catch up with folk. We chatted about how Christmas went, fun with in-laws […]

“You know my hips don’t lie,
And I’m starting to feel it’s right”

Hey, A bit of a late post from me, but it’s been one of those strangely busy evenings. I clearly remember coming home before six and then after that, it was all a bit of a blur. I guess a part of the evening has gone due to the fact that I’ve been setting up a new computer – well, new to me. This one, despite being four years old, is a  quieter and a lot faster than the other cobbled together unit I had. Sometimes, it’s the little things. Plus, that’s a few hundred quit that I don’t need to spend. I’m not a fan of buying gadgets when I can repair / hack something together to meet my […]

“’cause she new what she was doin,
when she told me how to walk this way”

Hiya, As way of a change, this week I’ve been away on a course. Not the tucked away in a hotel type of thing, but just away from the cut & thrust of the office. This time around it was a change from the technical and on to matters of a team focus. I found the whole thing interesting, but I think that was mainly due to the people I was with (lots of new people for all over the firm) and all the conversational stuff that went on. People swapping stories and life experiences, that type of thing. Anyhoo, during one coffee break, one attendee  mentioned that she’d been looking to study counselling, but given the travel required (the degree […]

“You’re in and you’re out,
You’re up and you’re down.”

Hi peeps, Before we dive into this week’s wittering, I think I should take the time to say thanks. A number of you commented, PM’d or emailed me over last week’s troubles and I found that deeply touching. You didn’t have to and for you doing so, I’m grateful. Thank you. Tuesday Laptops, they’re a bit Martini aren’t they? Not so much shaken not stirred, although today’s appointment did turn over a few stones… Where was I? Oh yes, tortured analogies. 🙂 Any time, any place, anywhere. All you need is a WiFi signal and you’re good to go. Well, okay, a full battery helps too. 😉 So here I am, holed up in a quiet room, sarnies to the […]

“I’ll escape if I try hard enough,
Till King of the Jungle calls my bluff.”

Hiya, This week’s post comes from the top of a proverbial hill. The view’s rather good and the weather’s holding out: neither chilly nor too hot. Through some low cloud I can see, well, mostly. Some of the sky is dark and scary, but most seems a bit misty with bolts of blue if you look long enough. If I concentrate, I can see the path ahead. Sure, it’s a bit patchy or rocky in places and there’s a few forks here and there where the way’s not so clear. But, I’m on the level – no longer slogging to get up the slope and I seem to be the dank of closely packed trees. If I stop and look, […]
