Nurture1415

For the last few years I’ve looked back at particular highlights of the year just passed and also used it as a chance to consider some of my hopes for the coming year. It’s interesting to look back now over three years to see how life has changed, and now here my #nurture1415 post. My … Continue reading

The Journal

Whenever we go on holiday I keep a journey of our travels. Sitting writing about our adventures at the end of each day, with a cold drink is a perfect way to finish the day off. I’ve been keeping holiday journals for nearly 15 years. It started mainly because Mr B and I have such … Continue reading

B&Q, barbecues and bluebells

Gotta love a bank holiday. The last one we had was spent visiting B&Q (Mr Bs favourite shop), having a barbecue and visiting the bluebells off the beaten track, round the back of The Wrekin. Local folk law would have you believe that The Wrekin is a hill made when a pile of soil fell … Continue reading

Back to Blog

OK, so here’s the thing. I haven’t been blogging for a while, and I’ve been wondering why that might be and what I might be able to do to sort that out. Work has changed. It had to change. Half of my team left so we had to change, and change quickly. Aspects of work … Continue reading

It’s been interesting rereading the hopes post. Have I achieved all I wanted, and how do I feel about that? I am of course taking … Continue reading

My summer in 8 ice creams

It might be fair to say that autumn is here. When I’ve got in from work this week I’ve had to put on a jumper and a pair of socks. We haven’t reached the ‘officially turning on of the central heating’ date at Bentham Towers, but that date in October will be here before I … Continue reading

A Welsh Walk

Imagine if you will, it’s the 1970s, the width of a kipper tie is challenged only by the width of shirt collars, you feel a bit dizzy from the overpowering patterned dress which has out done the flock wallpaper, I’ve invited you round to my house with the lure of a glass or two of … Continue reading

Understanding communication aka Say What?!?

For all who clicked on this blog thinking I might finally have something insightful to say about comms, I am sorry to disappoint. Yes it is a blog about the art of communicating, but it’s mainly a blog about my 5 year old as he grapples with pronunciation. We all know that learning to communicate … Continue reading

A Beach Walk May 2013

I am very lucky to be able to head to a field in Wales during the spring and summer months and spend my time walking the hills or the beautiful coastline. I have heard it said that Shropshire would have a wonderful coastline if it weren’t for Wales. The beaches are wide and sandy, and … Continue reading
