Change

I feel like I’m in such a weird space at present, no sooner have I moved flat than I’m trawling the jobboards of everything from Indeed.com to Craigslist (ok maybe not Craigslist).  Being a seasoned veteran on these job sites is not something I’m proud of, frequenting them so much that Google ads now popContinue reading “Change”

An advantage or a hindrance? The Goldilocks analogy,  Too much – and you can’t handle it.

Male Suicide

‘Death of A Salesman’ by Arthur Miller The Young Vic’s adaptation of the 1949 play was simply faultless.
