Feeling grim

It's two weeks to the day since I last feel 100% healthy. I'm getting bored of it now... I accepted a lift from a fellow delegate after presenting at a conference in Scotland two weeks ago. Within minutes, I realised she had a nasty cold, which meant that I woke up with same cold the ...

Just like…starting over

There's something about fresh starts that just appeals to me. Whether it be shredding old documents, donating old clothes to charity or even the first day of a new month. I like it. And so, this fresh start. Ironically, I'm writing while feeling far from fresh. After essentially traveling between London, Dublin and Edinburgh for ...

Long time, no blog…

I'm conscious it's been a few weeks since I shared anything here. Nothing major to report except some exceptional workload, travel and general running around. I'm writing this in the British Airways lounge in Edinburgh Airport. I flew up here on Tuesday morning. The week before was spent working in Dublin. And when I get ...

The Autumn changeover

After picking up some kind of virus late last week, I've spent this weekly mostly sweating, coughing, groaning, sneezing and generally feeling very sorry for myself. This was made all the worse because of my schedule. I had to fly to Bucharest on Wednesday ...

Royal Parks Half: 30 days to go!

In what is becoming a bit of a tradition round these parts, I'm running the Royal Parks half-marathon. In just 30 days! It's definitely my favourite half-marathon. The route is spectacular and it's normally really well organised. Not something that can be said for all large races. And, as usual, I'm running to raise funds ...
