Musings towards the end of another year

As another year comes to an end, it is only natural to look back and weigh the good and the bad of the year that was. If you’re like most people, you’ll also tend to cut a little loose in the last few weeks of the year, and over-do it with the parties and eating…

In your daily rush to get things done, what are you forgetting?

My personal laptop is close to ancient – it’s 5 years old. That’s as good as ancient in today’s world of upgrading laptops and phones the moment a new version comes out. It’s heavy and honestly looks like a brick. But, I’ve kept it with me all these years and I’m never going to get…

When was the last time you had a proper conversation with a close friend of yours who lives in another city? Last…

Give away some clothes

The first step in sorting out your clothes cupboard is to give away the items of clothing you don’t wear. Now, I know some items have a sentimental value attached to them.  There are also some which have an aspirational value attached to them – you don’t fit into them but one day you will. Let…
