Packing in more family time.

25th Oct, 2016

25th October 2016 – Like all breaks, at some point your mind drifts from all the things you are going to do while you are away and the relaxation therein on to the return to life at the end of it. Sadly, today was the day when my mind returned to what life is going

National Trust Days

24th Oct, 2016

24th October 2016 – National Trust Days are good days. National Trust Days remind me again what is important and the things I really enjoy and I took more photographs today than I have at any party or sporting event in years. The gardens, the open spaces and the look on my sons face as

A healthy day for 3 generations

23rd Oct, 2016

23rd October 2016 – The first part of this half term break has been all about my son and it has been great to see how relaxed he is in the countryside. My parents are incredible and such knowledgeable people. Their stock has risen above all else over the summer in support of me through

Sacrifices?!

20th Oct, 2016

20th October 2016 – Just to show that this is a moving feast, yesterday with my son didn’t quite work out as I’d intended. He was so tired when he got in from the child minder he fell straight to sleep. School is starting to catch up with him and I realise we are moving

Marginal Gains & Goal Clarity

19th Oct, 2016

19th October 2016 – I’m sitting at my desk and am ¾ of the way through a 1.5L bottle of water. The only certainty is that I’m going to need to run to the toilet in the next 5 mins. I had Granola and Blueberries for breakfast so started the day well.  I know that

Where has my ‘Mojo’ gone ?!

18th Oct, 2016

18th October 2016 – This is day 2 of the project and was another day spent at work. Well that isn’t a very interesting blog post is it?! On the contrary, importantly it was a day spent at work!!! Work, being something I’ve endured for months seems to be regaining a bit of a sense of purpose

Unhappy Birthday to Me!

17th Oct, 2016

17th October 2016 – This was a very odd birthday. A very odd birthday indeed. I desperately wanted to spend it with my family and to enjoy it like any other birthday. But this was always going to be different, it was always going to be strange and it was always going to be difficult.
