Hot desking

March 02, 2016
Even though I know the term and have used it for years, right now, 'hot desk' sounds like a sordid act partaken by a young horny Michael Douglas having illegitimate fumblings with some unhinged bint in a corporate environment. Watch your bunny, Mike! It has been a pretty varied year so far plunging me downward into gloomy solitude but giving me the opportunity to clamber back upward relatively…read more

Novel nights - find your voice

January 24, 2016
In my efforts to stave off the January blues, I've been looking for new things to do that aren't just trips to local bars with a couple of mates. Wanting something different, I was told about 'novel nights' by a friend. As an aspiring writer why not go out and actually see what the city's writing scene is like and be in the presence of actual writers and those who've attained that all sought after…read more

Finally feeling christmassy and Christmas comes early

December 15, 2015
It felt like Christmas last week and the week before but really when I thought this back then I was kidding myself, NOW it's starting to feel like Christmas. It's as people's work hours start to wind down, old friends are getting in touch for a catch-up before the holiday, traffic warnings begin and everywhere from pubs to shops are playing Christmas classics now without people looking offended. I…read more

Who said 'stop and smell the roses'? According to those3chicks, the highest ranking site on my related google search, it was a golfer and that is not the original phrase. It's also an album title used by Ringo Starr and did you know Hong Kong Chinese are more chilled compared to their equivalents from other countries - http://www.scmp.com/article/437520/rich-hongkongers-smell-roses As I performed…read more

The end of a good relationship, false hope and hope

September 01, 2015
The best relationship I've had so far ended a couple weeks back. It is still painful, truth be told I don't want it to end but I'm working on accepting the awful truth. The breakup came as quite a shock to me, it was due to her complicated life circumstances, there is nothing I can do to change or fix and since it is out of my hands that makes it a very bitter pill to swallow. But before you think…read more

Bristol harbour morning paddle boarding

August 25, 2015
I did my usual bleary eyed glare at the bleeping iphone next to my head and gave myself a generous extra 15 minutes on the preset alarm time. It was 6:30am. At 6:40am I remembered the early morning paddle boarding session I'd booked, weeks ago, started at 7:15 not 7:30 , so in 35 minutes time I had to be 25 minutes away my current cosey location. I leapt out of bed and grabbed some jogging bottoms…read more
