Friday 26th May 2017 – Some days it is really hard not to be bitter and down about life. Today is just turning in to one of those days! I think some of it is just tiredness on my part. I’m trying so hard to be an Uber dad on the days I have my

25th May 2017 – London is bathed in sunshine again today and I’m up at the crack of dawn, unable to sleep as soon as the sun hits the windows and the bedroom warms up. I spend the first 2 hours of the day putting on washing, watering the garden and doing the daily chores.

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

Focus in the opposite direction?

24th Mar, 2017

Friday 24th March 2017 – My thoughts for today switch to Mothering Sunday and I wonder if I should send myself half a bunch of flowers given that I am now Mummy and Daddy for 50% of the time??!! Good old gallows humor!!!! But in all seriousness it is another chance for me to be the

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

The bigger the stuff the harder I need to hit it!

Friday 10th March 2017 – I’ve got a bit of spring in my step this morning as I reflect on another wonderful evening with my little boy yesterday and despite the chilly start I’m heading in to London on the bike today with a bit more purpose. It is no secret that with the mush that has
