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

29th May, 2017

Monday 29th May 2017 – Bank Holiday Monday affords me one more day to be Super Dad and I’ve arranged a trip for my son and 3 of his little friends to go to the Natural History Museum. We set out early to avoid the crowds and it is already apparent that this is going

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

Long Run to Work

28th Feb, 2017

Tuesday 28th February 2017 – Today I’m up and on it early. I need to be on a conference call at 8am this morning so tight timescales ensures there is no chance for anything other than tipping out of bed and starting my run in to work if I am going to get there on time.

A Lazy Sunday with the family.

19th Feb, 2017

19th February 2017 – It is a lazy Sunday with the family today. The only frustrating part is I’m not actually with my family at all I’m with somebody else’s. I try my best to embrace the situation playing Snakes and Ladders and other games with my friends kids. Looking around I can see how much effort

Weekend Escape.

17th Feb, 2017

17th February 2017 -I’m escaping for the weekend today which seems to be the familiar rhythm of my life when I don’t have my little boy. I have to plan my weekends meticulously these days to try and avoid too many times when I’m alone. In some ways this sounds so pathetic. Just reading it

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

Good Intent.

30th Dec, 2016

30th December 2016 – I’ve got my first ‘proper’ day back in the office today. There are a few people about but most people are still enjoying the Christmas break (or working from home?!). It is a damp and misty morning and by the time I’ve cycled in to the office I’ve got pretty cold feet

Knowing Hugs.

18th Dec, 2016

18th December 2016 – Unsurprisingly I’m spending more and more time down at my parents house in the countryside over the weekends at the moment. This is a place where nobody knows me, nobody will judge me and I can be myself. I keep saying it, but my mum and dad are such amazing people.

No drinking and no staying late.

15th Dec, 2016

15th December 2016 – I’ve a business pitch today in London with one of my colleagues. We are looking at industrializing a product that could really make a difference in the IOT space and although the journey through town still carries a familiar, downbeat, feeling for me. There is a real buzz for me today about being in town and I’m
