Go forth and be fabulous

Hi, It has been a week of highs and lows this time around. The good news is that I had a very good night out at Chameleons. Unusually for me, I was ready fairly quickly and by luck or fortune, I felt okay about my outfit, rather than being plagued by self-doubt and second guessing. We had a number of new visitors to the group, as well as some returning folk. One visitor would I guess be FTM – female to male, for those not down with the gibberish – if we’re going to play the label game. His female friend had come along for moral support and it was so good to see many of the group, rally round […]

Why not a war on red tape?

Not much of a post this week. It’s been a bit meh in places, if I’m honest.  Work is really annoying me – or more accurately, we’re being turned into a support function, when we’re developers – which is really the crux of the problem. IT nerds may like to say root cause at this point. But, I’ve never been one to sit back and let things lie 🙂 I’ve been to see the head honcho in charge (no PHB, if you follow Dilbert) and I’m continuing with the dev work regardless. Mainly because we’ve got enough support staff; if the dev work doesn’t get done, our team will be in front of the fan as the muck spreader switches […]

“Reasons to be cheerful.”

Hi, How’s it going? Here on Planet Jones it’s been a bit mixed. Well, mixed up perhaps. A strange sort of drift through good things and not so good stuff, all with that old devil, tiredness. Let’s get the good stuff going because – and let’s face it – that’s the things that keep it all worth while. I’m feeling a lot better than I did at the start of the week. I think a good long kip and a night out with the girls (okay, t-girls) has helped. That and getting on top (Ed: oo-er!) of a work project that’s been bugging me for a while. With Little Miss stopping with Granny, it meant I didn’t have to get […]

“Sleep is not my friend”

Hi, If there was one underlying thread this week, I guess it would be tiredness. I don’t think it’s a lack of sleep per say, moreover, the lack of the right type of sleep. I never said I wasn’t a fussy so-and-so. 🙂 While my cat powers allow me to sleep pretty much anytime and anywhere, I guess a full night’s sleep without the audio terrorism by snoring’s causing would be helpful. 🙂 Maybe I should be going to bed earlier, but there is only so much time in the evening and I guess I’m guilty of burning the proverbial candle late into the midnight oil…. or something like that 😉 So, Chams this week and a party night at […]

“You can fight the sleep but not the dream”

Hi everyone, This evening I’m unusually tired and for that reason, and hopefully that alone, I’m a little out of it at the mo. With luck, a good night’s kip will set me right. But, it is Friday and Friday night is blogging night. I suppose in some odd way, I have my own personal deadline and if I break it, I wonder if I’ll get out of the habit of regular writing. Well, lets see where this week’s stream of consciousness takes us then eh? 🙂 Health – or perhaps more accurately, head-wise – I’ve been pretty good. I think the malaise over the last day or so is just tiredness. Nothing to panic about and really, would panicking […]
