It’s now been 3 months since i left my job, despite the weather being rubbish and the days being short, the time has gone incredibly quickly.

February, continuing my early Spring cleaning

In my last blog i talked about 5S, getting rid of “stuff”, making sure the things i kept were useful and in good order, and starting a lifestyle in which old habits don’t grow back. This was the start of a cleansing period for me, I continued doing this both with physical items as well… Continue reading February, continuing my early Spring cleaning

I today broke down and cried… Continue reading Maybe I’m not scared to death right now, maybe I’m literally scared of death now

I feel scared to death right now

I was relatively injury free, no hip and hamstring problems apart from one small scare. I had… Continue reading I feel scared to death right now

A great year with a frustrating end

 2014 has been great, awesome, fantastic, inspiring, fulfilling – in fact it’s possibly been the best one yet in my 42 years on this planet. I’ve not only achieved so much at home and at work, but i’ve also actually enjoyed achieving this – i know so many high achievers who achieve great things at… Continue reading A great year with a frustrating end
