Free Lunch

You’ve heard the old saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch”. My football club, QPR has recently been securing deals with local businesses in what seems to be an effort to reestablish its community presence. Long overdue but welcome. One of these partnership ideas is 10% off food and drink at local pubs. […]

Hungry?

Our two puppies Bobby and Lily turn a whole one year old on Monday.  Although litter mates, they couldn’t be more different. Lily is complex, lacks confidence, demands affection on her terms and usually the one causing mischief. She’d make a very good cat. Bobby is simple, endlessly enthusiastic and smothers you with affection. He also […]

I’m looking for Joanne…

This morning, a random parcel turned up, delivered by our DPD driver Osman. Osman is cool, he knows to try the doorbell and if we don’t answer he leaves parcels in the porch. Lovely. Today was a rare occasion where we answered the door and we were handed the package. Rarely a day goes by […]

Trusting them team

I had the privilege of going to the final two days of the Ashes this weekend (July 2023). It was incredible. Watching Stuart Broad, the night after announcing his retirement, smashing the last ball he’ll ever hit in cricket for six – straight over a client’s head it turned out. Then on Monday with his […]

No Risk, No Reward?  

 The moment that Ben Stokes decided to declare in the first innings of the first test of the Ashes, everything changed.    If you’re not familiar with what the England cricket team are doing, they’re completely tearing up the rulebook when it comes to test cricket.    Bazball, as it’s affectionately known, is all about […]

Community… What Does It Mean To You?

Here’s a question for you:   When you hear the word community, what springs to mind?   For me, it only has positive connotations. I was reminded of that this week when I saw a video pop up on Facebook that encapsulated every emotion I associate with football.   Football’s Not Every Business…   If […]

Gordon Ramsay Eat Your Heart Out

I love cooking.    And when I say cooking, I don’t mean the busy sort of family cooking where you’ve got bath time in 45 minutes, so you need to get something vaguely nutritious on the table pronto.    I’ve been there and done that…    Nope, I mean the sort of cooking where I […]

Consistency Is King

  You’ve probably heard by now that it’s the Coronation this weekend.    It’s a slightly strange moment given that, in my mind, a coronation is something that happened in times gone by…    Although that’s probably just a thought ingrained due to the footage of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation being in black and white.  […]

Sunshine, Crème Eggs, And An Invitation…

The Easter Bank Holiday weekend is one of my favourite times of the year.    If the sun’s shining, you’re onto a winner… and I’ve seen the weather report – it’s good news!     Now that the clocks have gone forward and spring is in bloom, the world feels that little bit brighter.     And […]

Now, I’m No Dog…

There we were, working on getting Bobby (one of our new puppies) to “wait” when he bolted.   He’d spotted a spider in the corner of the room and before you knew it, the spider was no more.   I’m not entirely sure about the nutritional value of a house spider, but I do know […]
