York – Magic Goes Wrong

For our wedding anniversary a few months ago we decided to get each other tickets to see Magic Goes Wrong at the Theatre Royal in York. Mrs Loons went up on the train earlier in the day as she was having a light lunch with a friend, so I did my day’s work and thenContinue reading “York – Magic Goes Wrong”

Code milky green!

I’m nursing a bit of a cold at the moment. Nothing too bad, but irritating anyway. Lateral flow test was negative. I’ve been working through it as I’ve been pretty much on my own. I found something rather sad but a sign of the modern world. A pigeon has made a nest on top ofContinue reading “Code milky green!”

It’s gonna be a nasty one again!

Even though officially it’s not been named as a storm (yet) we’ve got another chunk of really horrible weather coming across us today.

A birthday!

It’s at this time in your life when all your friends suddenly start turning 50. I’ve got a few of these over the next five or so years (including my own!). This particular one was at a bar in Sheffield. Myself and Mrs Loony, dressed up for a somewhat goth event, and thus, I giveContinue reading “A birthday!”

Winter’s Coming

Ok, I’ll come clean. I’ve never actually watched much Game of Thrones. It’s all a bit too killy for me – I prefer my TV a little more gentle (unlike my music, as you well know, which I like to be aggressive and thoughtful). Those of you who have followed my blog for a numberContinue reading “Winter’s Coming”

Something wonderful has happened.

I now have some leather shirts! They were ordered in error by a contact and couldn’t be returned, so they have ended up with me. There’s also a green one but I’m finding it difficult to photograph. It throws the white balance out on my camera. I must say I’m rather pleased!

Ooooh shiny!

So ASOS knows me exactly. They sent me an advert on Facebook and it was for a high shine suit. I had to buy! It’s arriving this week. The only worry I have is that it says in the reviews “runs small” and “no stretch on the fabric” on the sizing and even though I’mContinue reading “Ooooh shiny!”

Felt like I needed this.

I’ve not worn my leather suit in ages, possibly more than a month. I had a load of certificates to find on my servers so I was going to be an hour or more – I’d just been for a really long bike ride so I was sweaty as hell too. So I had aContinue reading “Felt like I needed this.”

New Tie

As you are probably well aware by now, I rather like leather and shiny clothing. Well I how have another item to add to my collection – a leather tie. It was bought from Etsy and was from a maker in Manchester. The leather quality is superb, it has to be said, and it looksContinue reading “New Tie”
