Boxing Day – Wot No Sales – Just Reflection!

26th Dec, 2016

26th December 2016 – I’m feeling the inevitable come down after the build up and execution of a wonderful Christmas Day. So much has been done to plan for everything that has happened up until now that I’ve not really thought about what comes next?! In this rebuild process, I know that the difficulty comes when

Christmas Day

25th Dec, 2016

25th December 2016 – Wow, I’ve made it to Christmas day! In some ways this seems like an achievement?! I’m sharing a room with my little boy at my parents house and he is sleeping in the cozy double bed and I’m sleeping on the floor. Not quite the way I had imagined I would see in Christmas

Being thoughtful and mindful of others.

24th Dec, 2016

24th December 2016 – Today I’ve planned something a bit different with my little boy and my parents. We are going to see the Elves and the Shoemaker in the village hall. Today is all about making things as special as I can for him by spending time and doing something different that he will hopefully remember

A day to catch up.

22nd Dec, 2016

22nd December 2016 – 2016 has been such a difficult year. On a personal level my world has fallen apart. The company I work for has struggled in the wake of accounting scandals and the weight of market competition and my phone seems to buzz every 5 mins with the news of the death of another

Things, that were once things, are no longer things!!!!!

20th Dec, 2016

20th December 2016 – I can’t think of a time in the last 2o years where I have signed off for the holidays before Christmas Eve. It has seemed like a right of passage to work to the end & get everything cleared down and then just shut off. But this year is different and

A weekend of R&R with a bit of Christmas Shopping.

17th Dec, 2016

17th December 2016 – There comes a point in every year where even the men have to go Christmas shopping. The conundrum for me is what to buy for whom? There are 4 different groups of people who I need to buy presents for in 2016: My wife and her family. I still love her/them dearly.

The ‘if only’ Q&A continues in my head………………….

16th Dec, 2016

16th December 2016 – This morning is the morning of the school Christmas play. This should be a joyous occasion but yet again I’m tiptoeing around the school and trying not to catch anyone’s eye. I first of all take up a position on the back row of seats in the main hall. But as the

13th December 2016 – I’ve a busy day logistically today as I have 3 separate appointments in different locations. I decide to start the day with a morning run to head out to pick up the train in to the office. It takes about 45 mins, at a steady running pace, to pick up the train line in to my work and it

Pushing on while half asleep

3rd Dec, 2016

3rd December 2016 – The lack of sleep has been building over the last few weeks again and hit a bit of peak last night. Following another night of 3-4 hours sleep I am desperate to maintain the focus on Nutrition along with a renewed focus on the bedtime routine including Lavender oil and anything
