Welcome to justthoughtsnstuff

Welcome to justthoughtsnstuff.com (jtns), which I've been writing since 2010. Most of its 680 or so posts are about day to day things - highlights from the previous week, books read, places visited - accompanied by photos of what I've seen. There are some posts, though, that deal with emotional and economic abuse that went on for several decades and that came to a head in autumn 2010. Writing jtns became in part a way of coping with the consequences of the abuse and exploring them openly. This aspect of jtns is discussed in jtns an introduction and life-writing talk, with reference to trust: a family story. Writing jtns has also helped me to keep going. Now that the pain of the past years is easing, the frequency of jtns posts is beginning to lessen and in 2020, when the blog turns ten years old, they will stop. I hope that visitors enjoy reading the posts and looking at the photos and take a little from them. Frank, October 2018

downton series six

It was on Thursday 22nd April 2010 that I posted about a new TV series that was being filmed in Bampton called Downton Abbey. Since then, that and my one or two other Downton posts have received more hits than any others on jtns.

Now it's the last series. No more will the little tell-tale magenta signs appear on speed limit signposts. No more will we turn out to watch the filming.

Also, as we don't have a TV, we have established a tradition of watching the latest Downton boxed set each Christmas. Christmases just won't be the same after 2015!
