Don’t get me wrong, I am very VERY happy the girls are finally sharing a room and our study/spare room is no longer a study/spare room/nursery, but the nightly bedtime routine is taking its toll..
Back in April 2021 I had my first job interview in 7 years for a Sustainability Consultant role in a new Sustainability division that the company was setting up.
I was not the successful candidate, and I know I still wouldn’t have been had I said what I wish I’d said in my cartoon, but given the number of advertisements for similar roles on LinkedIn that I see at the moment it’s something that companies need to wake up to!
I was re-organizing the house and getting rid of a few things a couple of weeks ago and my mind drifted to a fairly dark place…
My parents live in the Lake District and hike obsessively. In a calendar year (Feb 2021-Feb 2022) they managed to climb all 217 of Wainwright peaks aged 67 and 69!
This is the picture I drew for my Dad, and I’ve used moonpig.co.uk to make it into a large personalized card. I’m interested to see how well it prints out and whether it’s something I can do for other people in the future!
What the hell do people who have big houses do? I feel like half my time with my daughter is spent looking for the specific thing she wants at that moment!
She has comic timing!
Being a pedestrian in Brussels is infuriating. The combination of constantly having to dodge dog poo and dangerously driven tax free company cars makes me feel that instead of mouthing swear words at SUV drivers I need actual signs in multiple languages!
And yes, it is a systemic problem that we have designed our cities around cars, and it is sometimes very difficult to make certain journeys safely without them BUT there is a lot more many of us could be doing to cut down on our driving and to drive more safely when we do drive, and quite possibly a small reminder/regular guilt trip over the amount of air pollution we are causing each time we drive would be no bad thing- I know I need it.
I was cycling with my 6 year old the other day, and this is the invention she came up with! (I am always telling her that when she grows up there will be no cars, and she is cool with it.)
