  • Yearly Goals: 2021 in Review

    I’m three years in to my now ritual process of planning for the year ahead by setting myself a series of goals to cover broad areas of my life. This year my goal was themed around commitment and those goals were split in to three main areas.

  • Moving on from Fasthosts

    Today is my last day at Fasthosts. I’ve been there as a Product Manager for their server and cloud products for the last 2 years and while I’ve had an amazing time and succeeded in all the ways I intended, it’s time for me to move on to something new.

  • My typical day

    I’ve seen a few of these posts doing the rounds recently. It felt like a blog topic from the early days of personal blogging and I couldn’t resist.

  • On the road again

    I got my driving licence at 18 almost as soon as the DVLA’s scheduling system would allow.

  • Family Additions

    It struck me on my way to the office this morning, that it’s been so long since I wrote here regularly, that we’ve had a bit of a change to the shape of our family since I last updated.
