On the mend

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

Taking sensible steps

When there's too much going on and you're not able to do it all...time to be sensible and let something go.

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 ...

Feeling rough, on the move.

I'll be blunt - it hasn't been the easiest of weeks. 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.

Greetings from the sick bed…

Manflu misery

I'm getting the reference to "manflu" in before anyone else. But seriously, ugh... I'm ill. I got up early Monday and went out for a very comfortable 13km training run. I enjoyed every minute of it and as I was reflecting on my route, while in the shower, I sneezed. The rest is history. By ...

Craving bed…

I didn’t sleep particularly well last night and so this morning’s 6am alarm was a brutal blow, to say the least. Cue several pints of coffee to jump-start my heart and synapses. All this was necessary, as I spent the day delivering a workshop on psychometric assessment, sitting for about 15mins out of 7 hours ...
