Friday 14th July 2017 – I’ve taken some time away from ‘Social Media’ this has been for a number of reasons but most importantly it has been a period of time in which I have tried to find myself again. It is a period in which I have needed to detach myself from everything and

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

Hope or a Fried Mind?!

13th Mar, 2017

Monday 13th March 2017 – ‘This has gone on far too long!’ I keep saying to myself. I just want to be fixed. I just want to get back to being the person I was before all this began. But the old adage is so true. So often I take 2 steps forward and then

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone!

7th Mar, 2017

Tuesday 7th March 2017 – I came across some words of wisdom today that encapsulate exactly the way I am feeling at the moment ‘ People say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Truth is, I knew what I had, I just never thought I’d lose it!’ This is exactly how I’m feeling today.

In The Long Run

18th Feb, 2017

18th February 2017 – A lovely sunny day is a welcome view out of the window for a day where I have planned a long run across the hills with my friend. We pick a route across National Trust land, a really nice loop of about 13 miles. My body isn’t in great shape at the

Captain Cough is having a bad day.

5th Feb, 2017

5th February 2017 – Waking up on a Sunday morning with nothing organized and full of a cold isn’t great. Saturday was a late night by my standards and it makes the job of resting up and focusing on getting better much easier in so much as I am tired. As is so often the

Blue Monday

16th Jan, 2017

16th January 2017 – If I ever needed an excuse to be miserable then the cloud that hangs over today for so many would be it. Blue Monday, the third Monday in the year, is statistically the most depressing day of the year as Christmas memories fade, bills roll in, we grow sick of the dark

The new dawn of a New Year.

1st Jan, 2017

1st January 2017 – I can’t help being in reflective mood again today. It has been days since I’ve seen my little boy and this time hangs heavy when all around me my friends are spending time with their kids.

31st December 2016 – There are so many things racing through my head today! There are so many things that I wish I could change and there are so many things I wish I understood much better. All too often I find myself mentally ranking myself vs people I know at work and in my
