Working from Home
Despite the UK’s “lockdown” (which, let’s be honest, isn’t anything like what most countries have meant by “lockdown” I’ve still been hard at work. Not just on a couple of personal projects which include slowly bringing the eBooks I’ve published under different names back under my main author name, but also at my day job.
Too Much Choice
Do you ever feel like you have too much choice? I do. In fact, every time I open a blank document to write a blog post I feel as if I have too much choice.
Stowe Gardens, Buckinghamshire
This past weekend I visited the very beautiful Stowe Gardens in Buckinghamshire with my family. It’s a National Trust property, and this was a ‘free’ weekend. It normally would have cost us £30 to get in but because they were having a membership recruitment drive, it was free! Always good to get something for nothing […]
Let it Snow, Let it Snow… Let it Snow
Well, it’s Friday and, as predicted, we’ve had a dumping of snow, so I thought I’d share some pictures I’ve been able to take.

Learning the Hard Way
This past Saturday, my wife, my children and I took a trip to London for the day. In the afternoon we went to Madame Tussauds, which was very pleasant, but in the morning we attended the open day at Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill in Wembley Park
It was with a very fatherly sense of pride that I watched my son’s football coach call him back for a “quick word” after he’d dismissed the rest of the team following their 7-1 victory this weekend.
Not a Single Fig Was Given
In the few spare moments I have these days, I’ve been looking back at a blog I wrote under my secret pseudonym and it strikes me that I’ve mellowed somewhat over the past five years or so. Looking at posts from 2007/2008 there was a lot of comment on current events, much of it sounding […]
Then & Now
This is one of those Meme-things that goes around from time to time. Same set of questions, asked about yourself from various periods in the past. I found the questions (and answers at the time) in a blog post I made in 2007 on my Blogger site. Thought it might be nice to resurrect it. […]
