And so the trip begins…

And so the trip begins…

So it’s suddenly become real, this trip to Tokyo, New Zealand and San Francisco. It was just a figment of my imagination as far as I was concerned, until I stepped onto the plane. It’s real. And to be honest, it’s not the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I’ve spent a fair amount of time … Continue reading

Life is a many faceted thing

Life is a many faceted thing

Life, it’s a funny old thing isn’t it? Memories, attitudes, hopes and fears, problems, issues, dreams, goals, happiness, sadness, principles, remembrances. It’s multi-faceted, and always will be. No matter how simple we try and make our life, there is a plethora of sidelines that we may or may not take into consideration. Questions to be … Continue reading

I watch the world and European championships beforehand, so … Continue reading

A wander along the South Bank

A wander along the South Bank

I forgot how much I love London. ¬†Well, I hadn’t really, I just hadn’t made the effort to go for a while. Since I stopped commuting there for work my time has been limited to get in there and enjoy the city. The last few weeks has seen me desperate to get in to London … Continue reading

Confidence… it’s a mind game.

Confidence… it’s a mind game.

Confidence. Do you have it? Do you lack it? Do you wish you had less? More? I learnt a lot about confidence in the last week. I haven’t felt particularly confident for quite a while (by “confident” I mean the quiet confidence you find in people, not the loud brashness of over-confident people). I over-think, … Continue reading
