Ten reasons why I have not blogged much recently

  1. Have been held to ransom by OH and asked that I refrain from "writing about anything work-related". 
  2. Am spending valuable blogging time traveling to/from new work abode and cannot write whilst driving a car.
  3. Thought about dictating thoughts whilst driving but am yet to figure out how to get phone to cooperate without dialing emergency services.
  4. Did actually call emergency services but that was to report some idiot in the central reservation trying to cross the M4 motorway westbound in peak hour traffic.
  5. Any spare time has been spent sorting out logistics for U7s minis rugby festival teams and responding to one particular parent's idiotic queries and comments
  6. I have a PA who is so thoughtful that she has actually booked a lunch hour in my calendar to ensure I get a break from meetings, reviews, strategy planning, calls, etc, and have something to eat. 
  7. Said lunch hour usually consists of:
  • 20 minutes responding to personal emails
  • 15 minutes sorting out online grocery shopping
  • 5 minutes trying to remember what it was I thought about during my drive to work but could not write down or dictate to temperamental non-collaborative phone doubling as a recorder
  • 15 minutes being interrupted by random people popping by my office
  • 5 minutes doing mad dash to café to grab something to eat
    8. Am avoiding my well-meaning training schedule under the misguided impression that our first race of the season is aaaaaaaaaaaaaaages away.
    9. It isn't. 

Did I say ten? I must have been mistaken. Let me check my notes, they're here somewhere...


Yadda yadda yadda...
