I Brush my teeth for Zoom calls…

Each day, typically mid morning, I have a Zoom meeting with my immediate colleagues to catch up on progress and discuss our plans for the next 24 hours. Having been for a run, or some form of exercise early on, I’ll have had a shower and eaten breakfast before I start work, but sometimes that’sContinue reading “I Brush my teeth for Zoom calls…”

A mixture of ear worms I have chosen a number of different discussions and stories to listen to.

A tip to make time stand still

As I have found out and discussed before, time is such a precious commodity. But I’ve discovered a way to look at it which will give you more (I think…) Units of measurement Typically we’d measure time in seconds, minutes and hours. I’m not going to worry looking up who invented that, probably the Greeks,Continue reading “A tip to make time stand still”

To live, follow or chase your dreams.

At some point in our lives we have probably uttered the words “living the dream” with a slight hint of sarcasm when asked as to how we are doing or the progress of our days. I’m a big fan of sarcasm in general, but when applied to positive thinking, this sadly devalues the currency ofContinue reading “To live, follow or chase your dreams.”

In a world of messy hair and prickly chins

I’m writing today with reference to the workwear choices and lack of attention regarding grooming which seems to be attached to working at home. Priorities have slipped Whilst your new routine probably affords you more time and hopefully, you have managed to squish something constructive into those extra magic minutes, somehow your normal hair, shaveContinue reading “In a world of messy hair and prickly chins”
