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

5th December 2016 – The usual Monday morning whirlwind as I drop my little boy at school and the end of another big block with my little boy signals the starting gun of the lonely bachelor days again. I am going to work out of my Health Club today as I have a dentist appointment

28th October – I reflect on what has been a pretty restless night. Not the lying awake staring at the ceiling which I had during the worst part of this process. But once awake in the early hours I struggled to get back to sleep and then tossed and turned well past my alarm. Once
