Blunny

September 14th 2019 Today Jim asked me if I wanted to go to the pub spontaneously so I did because I did. It did not take much persuading at all because I no longer take any persuading at all. It’s just.. would you like to? Yes. He came to pick me up. We went to get Oli.e and Oli went to get his Dad and his brother and it got more lit than I’d imagined. Until tomorrow, It was mad at the blunny. Jacn Continue reading Blunny

September 12th 2019 Today I had my training workshop on the first day of the marketing conference for which I am in Brighton. I found it quite useful, if not a bit warm.

Has anyone ever been injured from napping before? I doubt it. Unless you nap while driving, I guess, but don’t do that, people. I sleep on … Continue reading Injured

September 9th 2019 Today I was back to work after 10 days off, and 7 days golfing around Portugal. I won’t lie, and this is perhaps a controversial shout, and you might not believe this, but I think I’d rather be on a golf course in Portugal baking in the 30 degree heat than in an office in Gloucester hearing the rain beat against the window. I know, crazy right? It was always going to be hard to go back, but I’d also forgotten how much different the traffic is in September when the kids go back to school. So … Continue reading Bleaker
