I was collected from work in pouring rain. He dealt with crappy traffic ... okay horrendous traffic since everyone forgets how to drive when there is water falling from the sky! A cup of tea (I'm seriously addicted to my cup of tea - I'll think about getting therapy ... not.) made *with love* and… Continue reading Coming home
This is a thing we do at work. We have lessons learned sessions after sales wins and losses, implementations and go-lives. We try and learn what we did well and can replicate, and what we did not do so well and change. We don't always learn from the lessons learned exercise, but it is becoming… Continue reading Lessons learned
The last few months have been a blur of work. Not so much activity in respect of doing a bunch of things, but just work. It feels like I am breathing, eating and sleeping work. Then I went and lined up 5 days of training over 6. There is a lot of preparation to do… Continue reading Preparation, realisation and acceptance
I don't know how to be married. How is that for a strong opening line? Honestly though, I don't know how to be married. When I think of marriage, I am constantly reminded of the first one. That was easy in hindsight and I will explain. In my first marriage, we had all the conventional… Continue reading Marriage

This particular guise seems to sit better than those before, so there is a good chance of another 4 years in the making 🙂 What makes this guise better?

It was weird as we were out of step, and had to make allowances for our moods and feelings. It was a good trip away though. We saw… Continue reading What is home?
Immediate disclaimer, I have never salsa'd in my life! I am reminded again why I do this - pour my heart and soul out on a screen page available for all the world to see and cast judgement on. I am having a dance with myself and letting you the reader watch. We all have… Continue reading Step to the left, step to the right and salsa!
It feels like last week I was bitching that January was the longest month ever, and here we are in the last week of March. Did I blink wrong? Or was that breath a little too deep? The first quarter of the year is gone. I am not too sure what I managed to achieve… Continue reading Deep breath
Somewhere (yes, I am lazy) I have written of the perils of menopause. I can genuinely confirm that yes, it's true. Menopause is a BITCH - and definitely all capitals! I have never been someone who sweats. I did that whole elegant thing and just got a sheen on my skin, but actual perspiration just… Continue reading It’s true
Ha! The title is suggestive as all my words just went on strike! My weeks are generally full on. Work keeps me busy and with the longer commute, I am finding that by the time it gets to being at home, I am just done. Yet, amongst all the busy-ness, I am still getting major… Continue reading Elusive
