Dream Job
I read a magazine cover with
excitement recently.   I can’t remember
the exact title, but the gist was ‘Make a Massive Amount of Money Doing what
you Love’.   Whoop, whoop, whoop!   I could hardly write my list fast enough –
fortune makers, each and every o...

The Holiday Blog
Holiday
minus 1 Holidays cost.   I’m not talking about the flights or the
accommodation or the hundred weight of toiletries.   Or the new clothes (and underwear; how does
that happen?)   Plenty in the drawer and
then boom!   Not enough for a mini-break,
let...

Where I Did Not Know and possibly Got It Wrong
There’s no shortage of sticks and
the opportunity to beat yourself with them in parenthood.   It’s a minefield.   Maybe it gets easier with subsequent
children, but for firsts or onlys, every day has got the potential for you to
do something wrong.   Doing ...

I like to move it move it
I went for a gym run last week, I didn't fancy their tunes,
so I cranked my favourite iTunes album on - Ministry of Sound Anthems 90. 
427 minutes of pure joy. Well, probably 400, there are a few duffers in there
(King of My Castle, Ebeneezer Goode and Don'...

We're All Going on a Summer Holiday
I've been on a lot of holidays. I'm not saying I've seen a
lot if the world, but I've seen a lot of sun loungers. If I look back at the
last 21 years of holidaying independently, I'd say the key changes are the
internet, terrorists, budget airlines, clampin...

Early Retirement
I’m thinking of retiring.   I’ve got 28 years to go, and quite frankly,
it’s 27 years 11 months and 3 weeks too long.   I’ve worked for 17 years, and I think that’s reasonable.   It’s not that I don’t like my
job, and I’ve certainly got lots of lovely memor...

Has anybody seen my baby?
My baby girl
is about to turn 7 in three days.   Seven!   I absolutely can’t believe
it.   My time hop is full of memories of
being told at my week 37 antenatal appointment that they were keeping me in
until my baby arrived (I thought this was the worst thi...

Sunny Day
I love a bit of sunshine.   It’s good for whatever ails you.   It’s lovely where I am today.   I’ve
just been across the campus and the sun wrapped me in a perfect warm hug.   It’s not sweaty hot, but it’s exactly the
type of weather that makes you reluctan...

Where I would sell my soul for a pair of comfortable shoes...
I don’t
think it’s just me, but summer dressing for work is a nightmare.   This little burst of good weather has thrown
me into a frenzy.   Things are made worse
(in a good way) by being two clothes sizes smaller than I was last summer, so
when I say I’ve g...
