Investments for More Better

Reading time: 4 mins

I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for fads, for shiny new things that will help me in my never ending quest for betterment. Is that a word? I hope so, because I can’t think of another word that encompasses the pervading view that we should all be trying harder to do more, be more, and…

Yes, it’s definitely that time of year. The music has started to be played on the radio (where are all the NEW Christmas songs??), the first dusting of slush has plopped itself all over everything, and I’ve got a cupboard bursting with presents ready to be wrapped, not to mention cards to be written and…

Today’s challenge, to see how productive I can be having had three hours sleep. Well, otherwise it’d just be another boring Monday, right? Why couldn’t I sleep? It’s all zed’s fault (well her and a splitting headache that developed about 10 mins after I’d gone to bed). I feel sorry for Monday sometimes. Gets an…

Friday is cake day at work. A hapless victim Someone volunteers to go along to Greggs and bring back about £20 worth of cakes, doughnuts and the like. There’s always plenty to go round and towards the end of last year I was sneaking in a mid-afternoon yum-yum to go with my morning fudge doughnut….
