From Deep Within

It has been a week of lunches, meetings, coffees and conversation. And as each day has passed I have wondered at the diversity of people I have been sharing time with – from an old uni friend who I haven’t seen in years, to a new that I simply started talking [...]

Daily Distractions

I am having lunch with a friend and I am running late. I’ve written multiple emails on my phone on the tube in, used it to navigate myself to the coffee bar, sent a last-minute text from the loo before I go to the table - and as I sit down, [...]

My Archie

On paper it was not a good idea, as many a friend advised. A dog? Really? How will that work out in your high-fuelled, traveling, work-filled life? Of course there were more who thought it a good idea. I’d grown up with multiple Labs, I adore dogs, oh and I’m a [...]

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 [...]

Paws and Be Present

I’m driving through London and my tummy hurts. Still. It’s been 5 months of illness now and although I am out of the house and stronger, the pain remains firmly present. I struggle to think about anything else as the traffic comes and goes, the horns, the noise, the London hubble [...]
