Keeping afloat

30th May, 2017

Tuesday 30th May 2017 – I was fully expecting my emotions to crash down a little today. They always do after a few days with my little boy. But the sun is out again and my early morning ride in to work is a happy one. I know I need to focus on building new

Feeling comfortable in my own home again?

27th May, 2017

Saturday 27th May 2017 – Do I feel comfortable in my own home? Well, for nearly 8 months the simple answer to this question would have been a resounding no! I’ve dreaded being at home. I’ve dreaded being home alone because the house contains so many bad memories and it has felt so empty. So today is

A matter of perspective.

22nd May, 2017

22nd May 2017 – I’m trying to build on the positive mindset from my short break in France. I have a trip to visit a client down in the South West today and like so much of my work for the last few years my job is to negotiate a good deal for the legacy

Exams……

14th Mar, 2017

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

Dinner

4th Feb, 2017

4th February 2017 – This is a weekend without my little boy and for once this is a blessing as it gives me a chance to get some proper rest in. I manage to catch up on some sleep for much of the morning and also catch the first couple of games of the 6 Nations

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

Dinner

10th January 2017 – I’ve got a 7am call with our Head Office this morning so the plan for the day is to take the call at home and then work from my local health club for the rest of the day. The good news about a 7am call is that it doesn’t leave a

Practical Plans & Hiding from Christmas.

26th Nov, 2016

26th November 2016 – The plan for today was to head to a friends who kindly offered a bed for the night (oh and yummy dinner) and has recently upgraded the boiler in his house and had a virtually brand new boiler going spare. The boiler at home is over 30 years old, a retro free standing boiler and in need of replacing so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to upgrade this without breaking the bank. It was a plan that ticked all the boxes for a weekend like this. More

The mindset to get on

21st Nov, 2016

21st November 2016 - I will always write the same thing on a Monday when I have had my son for the weekend. It is that horrible feeling that I know I won’t see the little fella again for a few days. Even typing this now I feel tearful. I feel tearful because I know none of this is my choice and the bond with my son has got stronger and stronger over the last few months. For now, it is him and I against the world (well for 50% of the time anyway). Nothing else really matters, nothing else is of motivation and if nothing else this shocking situation has given me 100% clarity on this.
