Learning from Children

Tim and I, along with our colleague Russ, have been working in a school over the last few weeks – recording podcasts, and this week filming TV, with some delightful primary school pupils. It’s been a long while since I have been able to spend this much time with children. Whilst [...]

Learning to Adapt

I’ve been having somewhat of a rollercoaster of a couple of weeks… On Friday 18th January I hopped on a train to Bournemouth to spend the weekend with around 50 of my relatives. On the 20th I returned to London, met Tim and got straight back in the car to head to Bristol [...]

My Perfect Place of Paradise

As I climbed out of the taxi my head ached, my chest hurt and my mind was spiralling out of control like a washing machine stuck on high spin unable to stop. I couldn’t get that horrid work email out of my thoughts and I could feel the obsessive thinking kicking [...]
