In many ways it’s been a hard week. I was definitely in the is tomorrow the weekend by the end of Tuesday camp and by the close of Wednesday I packed up at 16:45 with a migraine and went straight to bed. On Thursday I slowly came too, it’s still…

I did a really odd thing this week, as I was doing things I started in my head to write out my weeknotes — that is very odd. I have no idea what they were maybe my subconscious will. Go subconscious go :)

It’s been another week. Brighter I think…

I work with individuals, teams, organisations and communities to improve, sustain and notice connections. With an eye for patterns in relationships I work across the piece to bring as much difference that is needed to support relational processes and design and maintain structures to support them.

Though how I do…

On Monday I had so much energy, optimism and drive, got through so much so quickly. On Tuesday I picked up the pieces and started to recalibrate and calm down. Wednesday and Thursday were both average, which given Monday and Tuesday was much appreciated. …

It’s November…

I’ve had a slower than slow start today. Feeling a bit queeze at lunch I wasn’t sure if it was a good idea to eat, but I did and I had a couple of paracetamol. My bodies reaction to doing some things, like facilitating/holding space is quite odd — if…

Reflections on a Monday

Tuesday

This year’s theme…

Monday I felt like it was a tough start.

Tuesday I embraced things flowing all over the place.

Wednesday I was focused and forgetful.

Thursday I was like a duck on a pond.

Friday I began picking up the pieces.

Oh Defra oh Defra why do we use Microsoft.

Oh…

It’s Wednesday as I start to type. I’ve been feeling very much blurrg over the last few weeks. In this moment I’m not — I’m suddenly all over everything thinking I should be fixing that pipe under the sink that I didn't last weekend typing emails, leaving messages getting ducks…

I did a lateral flow test on Sunday. No Covid, very mild cold continued but seemed to pass. Feeling better about the seasons it’s less soggy.

Monday’s are fractured days as I pick up Eloise and then we do swimming. This week as I stood outside I updated my Trello…
