Where did the time go?

Time goes too quickly, as it seems to disappear faster and faster as I get older.  I read something in a book named Blink (reviewed on the reviews page) which said that the reason every day feels like a year when you are a child is because you are constantly learning new things, seeing new things etc.  Whereas, as an adult, so much of what you see if familiar.  I hate that!  This bank holiday felt like an eternity whilst

Work is definitely not good for one’s health

I think (although hopefully I will be wrong) that I am getting a cold…AGAIN!!!  I have decided that it cannot be related to my diet or my exercise regime because recently I have been extra healthy with my food and have been working myself very hard in the gym / at rowing.  No, the root cause of these colds is work!  Yes, that’s right.  This time I think it’s a combination of stress making me tired and a general code

They’ve finally arrived!

The Olympics – yay!  I have just been watching the highlights of the first day of rowing heats and I have forgotten how much I enjoy watching international rowing!  The heat of the M4- had me shouting at the TV .  Team GB had quite a good first day from what I have seen.  Alan Campbell got through to the semis of the men’s single skulls and, the aforementioned men’s coxless four also won their heat.  The women’s double skulls

Mission Impossible?

I swear that far too often at work these days I (and my colleagues) are asked to do the impossible.  We’re not closed to a challenge; something difficult is always not necessarily welcomed but at least taken on board.  However, everything I seem to be working towards these days seems completely unacheivable, and not just to me.  People who have a lot more experience and no-how have voiced the same concerns.  It’s just really infuriating that, despite this, people still
