“I’m gonna marry the night,
I won’t give up on my life,
I’m a warrior queen,
Live passionately tonight”

Hello again dear reader, Today’s post is live and direct from the top of my head. Nothing like winging it to give a completely unstructured and somewhat disjointed blog post. Mind you, I’m assuming you don’t come here for quality writing. 🙂 In the main, this week’s been kind to me… which makes for good news. I did have a bit of a grump earlier on, but in the big swing of things, you have to let some work stuff just go and move on. You can’t win them all. Sure, I guess you should aim to make things work, but equally, I’d say that at a certain point, you need to stop, rethink and if necessary, admit that some […]

“Turn me around and take me back to the start,
I must be losing my mind,
I’ve seen it all a million times.”

Hi there, Blimey, it’s turned a tad chilly of late hasn’t it? Righto, that’s the obligatory English conversational invitation over with, shall we move on? 🙂 I think the warm November had softened me up a little. I certainly wasn’t ready to be sat on the wrong side of cold in the office today. Luckily we have an emergency heater that we keep stashed in the draw – just don’t tell Estates. Shhh. 🙂 Despite the lack of sunlight and cold, cold weather, I’m enjoying December. I think it’s the run up to Xmas and all that it entails. Despite being slightly less flush in the bank department than last year…. Well, that’s not strictly true. The Ever Lovely Mrs […]

“Open up your eyes,
You can’t turn back the tide.”

Hi, Another weekly post eh? 😉 Funny, I had a collection of things I wanted to talk about, yet now, as I sit here typing, they’ve all scurried away to hide within the proverbial shadows. (Ed: temporal time distortion approaching team…. Yes, Lynn did write this bit earlier 😉 ) If I look to my right and out of the window, I can see rolling hills, the near empty branches of trees and some rather bushy connifers. The sun’s spilling out a warm golden light to the day and yet when I track up to the sky, it seems cold. Other than the exercise of description and a push to get me to actually type something, the above seems fairly indicative […]

“I’ll rip it up to shreds and let it go.”

Hi, How was Christmas? I hope it went well and if you were with family, that it wasn’t too much of a trauma. 🙂 Things went well here and the planning over early Xmas shopping – not to mention the speedy wrapping – all paid off. The Ever Lovely Mrs Jones did rather well, by her own admission, not mine. Wee Man was all made up over the amount of Lego he got and Little Miss? She was happy playing with her toys too. Throw grandparents into the mix and a good meal and really, I think we did pretty well. On the present front, Mrs J surprised me with some early gifts. “You’ll have to open these on Xmas […]

“If only for today, I am unafraid…”

Hi folks, Only a few more hours until the big day eh? Excited yet? Panicking over those last minute gifts or reading up on tomorrow’s massive cook-a-thon? That was ‘cook’ by the way and nothing rude, but lets move on eh? :-)I’d like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope that 2011 is kind to your and yours. If Christmas isn’t your bag – socially or religiously – then happy holidays if nothing else 🙂 The presents are all wrapped and stashed. The TARDIS like fridge freezer is packed with goodies, ready to be baked & primped as the hordes descend tomorrow. I’ve had a large G & T  (Ed: hic), so it’s time to finish off […]
