Space on the Train

1st Mar, 2017

Wednesday 1st March 2017 – I’ve got a meeting down in Exeter for the next couple of days so it is a good chance to get away and get some mental space away from home. I’ve decided to take the train and travel with one of my colleagues. We’ve actually been booked in to a

Long Run to Work

28th Feb, 2017

Tuesday 28th February 2017 – Today I’m up and on it early. I need to be on a conference call at 8am this morning so tight timescales ensures there is no chance for anything other than tipping out of bed and starting my run in to work if I am going to get there on time.

27th Feb, 2017

Monday 27th February 2017 – In order to combat the inevitable feelings of the comedown of the return to bachelor life that accompanies Monday for me I’ve desperately been searching for techniques to help.

Sunday Fun.

26th February 2017 – Yesterday, the photo of Bradley Lowery and Jermaine Defoe thanking Everton Supporters was circulating the internet and I keep coming back to it time and time again on my phone today.

Where is the balance?

24th Feb, 2017

Friday 24th February 2017 – One thing is for sure. I take nothing for granted these days! I feel as if my senses and my emotions are in overdrive at the moment. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing? Of course it is a very good thing that I am

Storm Doris

23rd Feb, 2017

23rd February 2017 – With the arrival of Storm Doris I face my very own ‘whirlwind’ challenge today. I’ve been up half the night as my little boy has the Norovirus and I’ve got a meeting I really can’t miss at work today. I hate saying this because I’m sure I can miss it! I hate thinking this

22nd Feb, 2017

Wednesday 22nd February – There is a spring in my step this morning as I know I will be seeing my little boy again this evening. As I’ve often written, the big blocks of time without him are so hard but they do make the days when I will see him again all the more

Thank you my friends!

21st Feb, 2017

Tuesday 21st February – Today is a day of reflection which I dedicate to all those people who have helped me so far in this process. I’ve had a few comments from people and they range from those who are saying ‘I’ve read your blog and I’m really worried about you’, to those who are saying ‘ You

Thoughts……….

20th Feb, 2017

Monday 20th February – Back to work today and I’m spending a lot of time thinking about the weekend. Sunday, in particular, was a window on a world which I miss more than anything. It showed me the benefits my friends are now seeing from the house move in to a family home that had been
