So whether you are waiting with baited breath (what does that even mean?) or couldn’t give a monkey’s, we have decided on our September resolution. I have to say that it’s becoming more and more difficult to come up with something so I’m not too hopeful about November and December! Anyway, from September we will … Continue reading September 2019 Resolution
My View of Bristol Pride
I’m ashamed to say that I have never been to a Pride Event before. So when my wonderful employer, St Peter’s Hospice, announced that it was to be part of Bristol Pride I jumped at the idea to volunteer.

In our society we are encouraged to think of success as the secret. Success in our academic life, success in our work … Continue reading Let’s Get Happy!
We’ve been tossing a few ideas around about our June resolution and decided that we need one that doesn’t cost anything so we’ve decided to: Re-join the library This may seem very trivial and insignificant but alongside it we will try very hard not to buy books for ourselves, especially new ones. We’re suckers for … Continue reading June’s Resolution
How Did April Go?
