Day 2: Bye Bye Banff Hello Hockey!

My body clock continues to be screwed so I was up at about 4a.m reading Arsenal moaners on Twitter.  I packed up all ready before my tour and went for my breakfast at the grill.  I love American/Canadian breakfasts, pancakes, poached eggs, sausage, bacon and toast with a load of maple

Day 1: Banff National Park

Fair to say from Friday last week work was a bit crazy with a particularly nasty service issue gobbling up my weekend.  It was so messy I did not want to throw my stand-in under the bus so I didn’t take the day of the flight off in the end and ended up working from the Premier I

NYC Days 5 & 6: Hanging out with the lads

On Saturday I did very very little.  I watched football all day in the hotel room and I ordered Japanese take-away to the hotel room too.  It brought back good memories of last summer having Udon noodles again. I did book myself a swanky meal for the evening in Brooklyn though and had

NYC Day 1: F1 @ Heathrow

After a late night watching ‘Making a Murderer’ and panic cramming some work, I did not get much sleep at the hotel and it was a 5am alarm clock for me.  Thankfully, I did leave early because the day did not start too well. I have done Sleep Park Fly a hundred times with P

7 Songs Challenge… Sort of

I have seen a lot of the ‘7 Song Challenge’ going around Facebook at the moment, and I’ve not paid much to attention to it to be honest.  I have no idea what it is meant to raise awareness for or anything but it did cast my memory back to reading Nick Hornby’s

A look back at 2015

After a cracking end to 2014 with my nephew being born, I was ready to tackle 2015 and continue my recent tradition of trying to top the year before.  I had big plans for 2015 and now I am sitting here looking back on it, it has been an absolute cracker! It started off with a slight c
