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 ...

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 ...

On the mend

I'm finally feeling human again, after the flu that just wouldn't die. Time for some moderation and self-care...

Leaping into another week!

I made it home from Scotland last night, just in time to catch the final episode of 'Bodyguard', the BBC drama that seems to have gripped the nation. Or, at least, the people I follow on Twitter. It was nerve-wracking, in a good way, but once it ended I was far too tired to unpack ...

The present heatwave is really welcome. I love the sun and I love being out in the heat. We get far too little of either in London, as far as I'm concerned. But the past few nights have been so hot, I've barely slept. And this is with all the windows open and fans creating ...

Some voice-based shenanigans

I’m once again sending recordings of my voice out into the internet, thanks to Anchor.

A need to disappear?

I've always seen myself as an extrovert. In fact, every assessment I've ever taken (and they are many - I'm a psychologist remember!) pins me down as an extrovert. I love spending time with others and meeting new people, I enjoy discussing and debating my ideas as work in progress, I prefer discussions over email ...

A restorative walk in the sun

My old 'friend' insomnia returned with a bang last night. As a result, I got about four hours of sleep - which is approximately 50% of what I need to function. So I wasn't at my best when my alarm vibrated on my wrist. I was still convinced it was 3am - the last time ...

One week in with the iPhone X

I finally got my hands on the new iPhone X last Sunday and I have to admit, it's rarely left my hands since then. This - finally - is the iPhone I've wished Apple would make. Yes, there's been a ton of anticipation and hype about this phone, but for me it has lived up ...
