I dropped them off next to the river, whilst I spent 45 minutes attempting to find free parking, this proved to be impossible! […]

Smile with your eyes not your thighs

DISCLAIMER: This is NOT like the Friends episode where Chandler ends up going to see a one woman show alone – if you do not get this reference, it is not crucial to understanding the piece!

It feels cold today, so I’ve indulged myself by remembering our holiday in the sun last year… Last summer, in an attempt to persuade my teenager to holiday with us, I booked a last minute trip to Sardinia. This was somewhere I had dreamt of visiting for years, and I was surprised at how cheap […]

Excellence Is the Next Five Minutes “Excellence is the next five minutes”. So says Tom Peters, author of innumerable management books from 1982’s In Search of Excellence to 2018’s The Excellence Dividend.

seems to be the philosophy of Harry and MM and perhaps even the BRF. Keep shoving Meghan in people’s faces as if that will make her liked and the monarch free of the criticisms about her. Not a brilliant strategy. Narcs like Meghan love drama controversy if they are at the center of it so […]
