Bank Holiday Weekend

Reading time: < 1 min

Yesterday was a Bank Holiday. Whilst this is not a huge event in and of itself, it is worth noting as it was probably the first time I’ve not worked one for about 10 years. After a day pottering at home on Saturday, we headed through to a friends house for a BBQ on Sunday….

Content in the City

Various recent events have me pondering. At what point does the amount of digital content we have become a burden? In the age of “more”, when does “a lot”, become “too much”? Why do I have Carrie Bradshaw’s voice in my head? Leaving the exquisite Ms. Parker (or Mrs. Broderick if you prefer) to one…

Unlike Lyle, I do not, have not and probably will not ever own a three-piece suit. I don’t really see the point in adding an extra layer to a set of clothing that I’ll only wear when under some form of emotional stress and usually in a warm place (unless the air-conditioning is working).

Are we there YET? Are we THERE yet? Are we THERE YET!!? are we there yet? ARE. WE. THERE. YET! We must be close, surely. Every morning has started with a glorious sunrise, breaking through the mist. Every afternoon finds me gazing out of the window as the sun sweeps across the land. Every evening…

Keeping busy

Without wanting to harp on about it, but hey, it’s my blog so I’m gonna… as covered the other day, and as the Belbin tests confirmed, I’m the guy who likes starting new things but soon gets bored. I wish I could argue against this but it’s true. I do. I love the planning and…

Eureka!

Similarly to yesterday I have a few thoughts burbling away in dusty recesses of my brain. They are all sort of maybe might be loosely connected but I can’t seem to coax any of them out to play. This is doubly annoying as, not only am I certain that if I could tease them out…

There is a vague thought tickling the back of my brain, all prompted from spending some time driving around in our new car. No, it’s not about the car, nor about driving, at least not directly. It’s roughly centred around our natural competitive nature, and the weird effect that sitting behind the wheel of a…
