Today it is a year since my #hairhack, that’s one full rotation of the sun and probably my least hirsute one yet. I wanted to write a blog post, partly to share some learning and mark a year on, but mostly to update on the two causes that I shaved my head for in the … More A less hirsute rotation around the sun #hairhack #JusticeforLB
Didn’t want the sun to set on today without capturing something on paper (actually the sun set hours ago and this is just me and my keyboard, no paper involved, but lets not get caught on details!). Today I went to Oxford for Connor’s pre-inquest review hearing. I hadn’t set foot outside the station before Agent … More Pre-inquest review #JusticeforLB

It’s 581 days since my Dad died and I can honestly say there is rarely a day that passes where I don’t have a fleeting thought of gratitude for Rowcroft Hospice, our local hospice who supported our family in Dad’s last year of life, especially in the weeks up to his death. I often think … More A good death, a bad death. It matters.
I can’t remember Father’s Day last year, I suspect I dismissed it as a hallmark holiday, a little grumble and moved on. This is my second Father’s Day since Dad died and I’ve been raging all week when I open my inbox!! Lots of really drossy, ill considered, spammy emails…earn extra [insert generic loyalty brand] … More Life after Bobby: Father’s Day
