I haven’t been in the most chipper of moods lately. To be honest, I’ve been feeling quite cynical and disillusioned. But the cloud is lifting – it always does – and there have been been a few rays of sunshine this week. The biggest was a little bit of CSI work I got involved with,… Read More The Hanging Gardens of Walkerville
On a very good day, I spend about 90 minutes in traffic on my commute to and from work. That’s an hour and a half of my waking hours staring at cars in front of me and dodging taxis. Last year, I made a conscious decision to be more discerning about what to do with my… Read More Inspiration Everywhere!
One of the modules I need to take as part of the degree I’m working on is Business Statistics. I avoided it last year but I couldn’t avoid it any further because it’s necessary for some of the second and third year subjects I’m taking. So here’s the thing. I don’t have a numbers brain.… Read More Statistics. Or maybe Greek?
It’s been a big, hard week for my big kid! So much change, so much to get used to! While I have no doubt that in time, we will all find our way in this new teenage world we’re navigating, it doesn’t make the right now the easiest place to be. Which got me thinking… Read More The only constant thing

Tomorrow I go back to work – my official start to 2017! We’ve had a lovely few weeks as a break, and now it’s time to face the real world again. That means it’s also time to consider what I want out of the year ahead! Sharon over at http://www.theblessedbarreness.com posted her word for the… Read More Bringing 2017 “into Focus”
Hey hey – it’s the first day of 2017! I kept planning to write a goodbye 2016 post – but holiday chill got the better of me and I didn’t get round to it before the clock struck 12 last night! Social media has been all abuzz about how nasty 2016 was. Honestly though –… Read More Endings and Beginnings
I’ve mentioned the foot/ankle/leg thing a few times. If you’re a regular reader (and yay for you!) you’ll know that it’s been the reason for my extended absence from my running club for a few months now. I started off with a self diagnosis with the help of Dr Google. It doesn’t take brain (or… Read More The Foot Chronicles… or my (chronic) left foot
Hey everybody! It has been about two months since I last confessed posted. Two months of exam stress! If I ever decide to try do four modules in a semester again, please feel free to smack me upside my head! It was terrible. Loads of stress, very hard to focus and I am pretty sure I… Read More The Injury Edition
