Hot and bothered

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 ...

Beating the Dublin heat

I'm here in Dublin on business, seeing several clients and working on a bunch of projects across last week and this week. And my visit has coincided with a bit of an unseasonal heatwave. Dublin is a great place, but it really comes into its own in the sunshine. Lots of big, blue skies and ...

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 ...

An accountability update

After my last, self-flagellating post, detailing my seasonal gorging, I managed to have quite a few 'healthy' days in a row. By which I mean I made it to the gym each day I was working in Dublin - and on the weekend!     I also managed to avoid cake. Except for a single scone ...

Hands up if you’re a lazy, boozey fatty…

There's only one way to put it: I let myself go completely in December. Not in a free-thinking or hedonistic way, but in a completely gluttonous, greedy, calorific way. No cake or mince pie was rejected, no drink or cocktail was politely declined. I ate like a competitive eater and drank like a student. Plus, ...

Food and exercise: another accountability update

I'll raise my hand right now - this has not been a good week. In fact, it's been such a 'not good week', that I've avoided weighing myself so I don't have to see the harsh reality. The plan has been somewhat abandoned for the last five days or so. Don't worry, I'm not 'get the ...

Huel breakfast on the go

Keeping a Huel bar close at hand saves me from a calorific airline breakfast. Three cheers for Huel!

Testing the iPhone 7 Plus camera

I've had the new iPhone 7 Plus for a little over a week, but I've still managed to put it through its paces, indoors and out, and I thought I'd share a few of those photos here. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of pics. The camera app seems faster and more responsive than in ...
