I recently took part in an event to raise money to help homeless charities. They give hope, help and respect to many and are in desperate need of donations to continue their tireless work. So a bunch of us got on board for some manic fund raising as part of The Cold Truth campaign. There … Continue reading My bag is my home
I haven't watched 80's classic Short Circuit for years. Tee and I thought we'd have an 80's night and everyone's favourite 80's robot who 'is alive' following an electrical storm reprised my youth when he appeared on the screen. Ally Sheedy, Steve Gutenberg and Steve's helpful Indian sidekick Ben all brought back youthful memories from … Continue reading Number 5 is alive
Recycling in the UK is a standard practice today, although a bit late compared to other countries. My awesome Canadian mate Trev poked a joke at me a few years ago. I was saying how great recycling is. (I was on one about saving the planet). He said that Canada was recycling when he was … Continue reading Wecycling the message
I sometimes forget how blessed I am to have the ability to move. I think most people would say the same, it's something we take for granted. I am reminded of that gift while I am bed bound, having temporarily lost the freedom of movement. So there I was, leaving work after a long but … Continue reading Hopeless without movement?
Pawsably the shortest of blogs but very important. I'm not the fastest in the pack so this may be woofing obvious and the blog pointless but I'm not sure - I am seeing it still. So in the UK it's amazingly warm, hot even, holiday abroad hot. It is a rare sweltering treat. Tarmac is … Continue reading Hot to trot – or not?
Five days in Catalonia is not enough. But with a hire car, we gave it our best shot - Barcelona baby!
In '82 the clash sang about the decision to leave or stay. Sounded like a troubled relationship. Leave her (miss her), stay and have her (bags of troubles) - I'd have left personally. If the relationship isn't harmonious it is just repeating noise. And talking of noise my cross training workout was unexpectedly interrupted when … Continue reading Should I stay or should I go
I love new experiences but some are so random that whoever you tell has that slight sparkle of skepticism in their eyes. But here goes. I stopped at Morrison's on my way home to get some bits and pieces. The hot chicken counter had an offer on thighs so I picked them up to shred … Continue reading Those unexpected things
While he doesn't like blogs I hope Alex will allow a hall pass on this one. I've worked with Alex for 4 months, I am new in my job and new to the industry, but Alex has years of experience and is generous with sharing that knowledge. Something I will always be appreciative for. He gets … Continue reading Alex
Maybe it wasn't a planes, trains and automobile experience. But like John Candy and Steve Martin's mission to get home for thanksgiving - so was our determination to get to our destination. My colleague Gareth and I were heading to a team away day with our Dutch colleagues in Holland. It was all smoothly planned … Continue reading Indirect flights and their direct experiences
