Exploring the limits.


Last week was really full. I had many adventures big and small and explored lots of limits. Along the way I learnt a few things too.

Carrying Momentum.


I am just home after a lovely weekend at my friends. I thought now would be a good time to do an update on how last week went and to look ahead at the week to come.

Starting 2016 Positively.


I took a 2 and a half week break from sleeping in my flat over Christmas and the new year. Today it is Thursday (and new years eve) so heres a short update on our plans for next week.

Burnout. Abort.


Last week was pretty rough. I went into the week exhausted and the burn out really set in. After two days of managing meltdowns and massive amounts of anxiety I aborted my flat to go stay with friends.



This post is going to be bullet brief. I just need to get it written! This is the 5th or 6th draft.

I am feeling really weird at the moment. There is lots going on.

New routine, small achievements adding up


It’s Sunday which means this is the start of my forth week in my new flat.

This post is a quick summery of where we are so far with new things plus a run down of this weeks achievements.

Travel things.


It’s been a busy few days. Traveling up to Salford from london for work meetings.

Here are some notes.

A Plan Comes Together.


We’re about midway through my third week in my new flat so time for an update on how it’s going. This week we have a new babysitter and my first work travel for a while.

And we're in. Now the hard bit starts.
