WhatsApp eh? A brilliant way to communicate cheaply with your loved ones, or is it the chink in your armour that you've failed to notice? Remember in the good old days, before t'internet, we used to meet up with various..
In the middle of the pandemic I wrote a blog about the 7 stages of grief in a bid to try and help a few people that I'd spoken to that were struggling mid-lockdown. It's sometimes easy to forget that..
A little while ago I wrote about my "hobby" of people watching on social media. That blog was inspired by the victim statement that Ben Hewis had put out after watching his stalker, a certain Alex Belfield, get sent down..
As a general rule, I hate discussing the disparity between how females are treated in business versus men, however, this morning I was reminded of the reality again. A letter of complaint that I had written was perceived to be..
