Desperate Measures

Posted by The Joneses on August 5, 2007

carstons hat

What would you do if you were starving? I mean really, truly, wolf’s at the door, hyena’s on your swing-set, starving?

Because I’ve just done something I feel slightly dubious about and I’d really like you to make me feel better about it. Please.

Love & Light,

Dawn x

Home Spanish home

I found a card in the lining of Carston’s hat – for an estate agents called 1stcallspanishhomes.com.

If anyone wants it back please get in touch.

Or if you want a Spanish home, get in touch with them.

54: Wicker Roof

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 31, 2007

Glad to be leaving Spain behind, though worried about Carston’s friend. Do you recall Theroux ever putting himself in this much jeopardy? Thought not…

The Outlaw

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 31, 2007

The outlaw

I am Dawn Siobhan Jones, 27, an outlaw from Coventry. But I’ll be a good one, a Robin Hood type figure. I’ll give lots to the poor.

This very morning I bought a homeless woman a large bouquet of flowers.

Love & light,
Dawn x

Hidey Low

Posted by Ian Jones on July 31, 2007


I do not like hiding.

I liked it better when we were on a quest. It’s better to be going at something rather than from it. Best of all is to be in your own room, doing and making, at your own pace. But those days are gone.

I feel a bit twitchy and we’ve got no pop to settle my nerves.

53: ‘King Prawn of Alicante’

Posted by Jonti Bloom on July 30, 2007

When I first started out as a documentary film maker I made a list of things I would never do even for a great story:
1. Put the lives of my immediate family in danger
2. The human trafficking of children
3. Have sex with a woman who marks less than 4/10
4. Black up in inner city areas
5. Sleep rough
6. Eat directly from a tin.
Looks like I’m going to have to revise the last two.

Spiritual guidance

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 30, 2007

Camping out with Carston

Tonight I tilt my head toward the blanket sky of night & wish upon a star as countless others have done before me. I throw out pleas for guidance to the cosmos. Spiritual guidance not geographical – I know we’re in Spain, I can tell by the onions.

Love & Light

The Art of War

Ians bandages

I put a bit of yoghurt on my wound and that was quite soothing and I don’t think it needs stitches as the cardi took most of the impact.

In Memorium

Posted by Ian Jones on July 22, 2007

Pet Sematary by Stephen King

I used to wish the dead could come back to life, even despite all the evidence saying that whenever they do, it goes wrong: vampires, ghouls, ghosts, allips, liches, Pet Sematary, etc.

Now I realise that people don’t ever die as long as there is someone who really remembers them.

We’re all immortal for, say, two or three generations.

Sunday mornings

Posted by Dawn Jones on July 21, 2007

Sunflowers to make you smile

As a child, Sunday mornings were sacred in our house. Without fail, the whole family would gather together and watch Little House on the Prairie. It was a familiar scene with me on the bean bag and mum on the recliner, taking the weight off her gammy leg.

I remember one such morning with lung stinging clarity. Nellie Oleson slipped on a pig at the fair and had a tantrum. Charles Ingalls advised “When life throws you a lemon, Nellie, make some lemonade”. Mum said “Now there’s a lesson to live your life by”. And I have.

But sometimes, only on my darker days mind, I get tired of manufacturing gassy liquids. I don’t always want to roll with the punches, dust myself off and start all over again. Sometimes, I just feel a bit sad.

Love & Light,

Thumbs up - sort off…

It worked!

Snowy Saltamentes rang the radio lady and now we’re going to meet up! This is a big success for me as Communications Officer and I am VERY PROUD.

I have washed my hair with Dawn’s Timotei and it is ‘well fluffy’ according to Dawn.

She has just added that ‘I am hyper’.
