17th Jul, 2017

Monday 17th July 2017 – It’s been a funny old weekend. I had a beer with friends on Friday evening. I had an amazing run in the park and then helped a friend who has been instrumental in helping me over the last year by erecting some garden decking. I’ve ridden my bike, tidied my garden and generally been active and

Friday 26th May 2017 – Some days it is really hard not to be bitter and down about life. Today is just turning in to one of those days! I think some of it is just tiredness on my part. I’m trying so hard to be an Uber dad on the days I have my

25th May 2017 – London is bathed in sunshine again today and I’m up at the crack of dawn, unable to sleep as soon as the sun hits the windows and the bedroom warms up. I spend the first 2 hours of the day putting on washing, watering the garden and doing the daily chores.

The day after the night before

23rd May, 2017

23rd May 2017 – I begin the blog today in somber mood. My phone pinged at just after 10.30pm last night to the news that there had been a bomb in Manchester. My surroundings, a beautiful hotel room just around from the Cathedral in Exeter, suddenly changed. I instantly turned on the news and it

Friday 24th March 2017 – My thoughts for today switch to Mothering Sunday and I wonder if I should send myself half a bunch of flowers given that I am now Mummy and Daddy for 50% of the time??!! Good old gallows humor!!!! But in all seriousness it is another chance for me to be the

Tuesday 21st March – Today is as much of a social and economic reflection as it is a plan of what to do to rebuild my life. By April 2018 the company I work for needs to have found new premises as the lease expires and there is no prospect of renewing the current lease as the space

Tuesday 14th March 2017 – I’m back in London today. I’ve woken a lot less agitated than yesterday and the buzz of the ‘Beautiful Capital City’ is an antidote to my mood. With 7 Billion people on this planet I know my life shouldn’t be defined by the behavior of 1 or 2 and the

Friday 10th March 2017 – I’ve got a bit of spring in my step this morning as I reflect on another wonderful evening with my little boy yesterday and despite the chilly start I’m heading in to London on the bike today with a bit more purpose. It is no secret that with the mush that has
