I officially move to my new team tomorrow. Despite really looking forward to it, I will confess to having a few nerves. However, I would be worried if I wasn’t feeling that way – in the same way as my racing, without nerves it implies complacency and / or arrogance. Both are traits which are your friend in small doses, but too much can lead to ones downfall. Despite having done some work for my new project already, I am

I believe that I know myself very well. I don’t mean that in the obvious way, but in the sense that I know how I will react to things, why I react that way (even if I cannot change it) and I am honest with myself about my strengths and weaknesses. Of course I will be blind or disillusioned about some things, but I think I acknowledge my traits more than a lot of people acknowledge theirs. That said, there

So WeHoRR, and the weekend, have been and gone.  It has been a great but tiring two days.  I have run out of time to write the post I wanted.  Perhaps I will have time tomorrow, though probably not.  Sam has uploaded some photos on to his website, so check them out!  Also, I have put some new random shots on my flickr which are also worth a peek!

It’s WeHoRR tomorrow!

It’s WeHoRR tomorrow! Eeek! Time has gone so fast, I cannot believe it. In some ways that is good because I have dwelled on the race too much. However, the reality is hitting home and those pre-race nerves are arriving. I think my body has been well aware of it because I have been very lethargic all day. If it thinks it’s going to get out of it though… 😉 The race doesn’t start until 3:30pm, with our boating slot

Why is it that, whenever one has a delivery or collection booked, one always ends up at the end of the round.  I sound very formal using ‘one’, but I want to make it clear that this seems to happen to everybody.  Regardless of where I have lived or what I have been having deliveried or collected, I always seem to spend the entire day sitting around…waiting. The only exception to this of course, was when we had our Gift

Following slightly from my blog post earlier today, Sam and I watched ‘The Making of The Social Network’ on the special features disc.  It was really interesting actually – one of the better special features programmes I have seen.  It is amazing the attention to detail that went in to portraying that film.  If you’ve seen the film, it’s worth a watch.  If you haven’t seen the film, watch the film.

Twitter vs Facebook – which is best?

We watched ‘The Social Network’ again on Friday night (see our Shorties on Revado) and, despite reminding me that I disagreed with some of the Oscar nominations, it also got me thinking about Facebook vs. Twitter again.  It is a topic I have pondered over many times and I think over the last 6 months my view has actually changed. Like most people, I joined Facebook first; I was invited or lured in by friends.  I don’t like to miss

My cold has almost gone – hurrah!  Unfortunately I think that Sam has got it because he is on the train heading home from a day away and is feeling rubbish.  This is not good.  But, it’s the weekend which means he can rest at least.  It has been one busy week.  I am starting to get in to work for my new team and there is so much to take in and understand.  I know it’s going to be

Bah, I have got a cold! I am most annoyed. But it feels like it’s passing already so that is a positive. Also, it’s this week, not next week right before WeHoRR which have been bad! It was fought as work today as a result though; you spend the whole day sniffling away and going back and forth to wash your hands. Well, maybe not everyone does but I tried and not spread horrid germs all over the building! Sam

There are some occasions where you feel completely unsupported by someone who should be supporting you. I would like to make it clear up front that I am not referring to Sam here! Rather people in a work context or similar. It’s very hard to address those situations. You can talk to people but often then does not help. I guess at work you can sometimes escalate it upwards. However, my current predicament is not a work one and I
