Reflections on a short break in France.

21st May, 2017

21st May 2017 – I’m flying back to the UK today after a short break cycling in France. The trip has been exactly what I needed and a massive departure from the last time I went cycling with this group back in September 2016 last year. The nice thing has been that everybody has noticed the

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.

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

A Lazy Sunday with the family.

19th Feb, 2017

19th February 2017 – It is a lazy Sunday with the family today. The only frustrating part is I’m not actually with my family at all I’m with somebody else’s. I try my best to embrace the situation playing Snakes and Ladders and other games with my friends kids. Looking around I can see how much effort

Weekend Escape.

17th Feb, 2017

17th February 2017 -I’m escaping for the weekend today which seems to be the familiar rhythm of my life when I don’t have my little boy. I have to plan my weekends meticulously these days to try and avoid too many times when I’m alone. In some ways this sounds so pathetic. Just reading it

Listening!

23rd Jan, 2017

23rd January 2017 – Today has a proper winters feel about it. The air is cold and damp and the commute on the bike a chilly one. There is a real beauty about the scenery though as the street lights filter through the morning haze and the sun comes up. I have a number of meetings
