Happy New Year
2016 was a shocking, memorable year.
Let's hope 2017 is more settled, and that Donald Trump and the start of the Brexit process aren't as bad as many people fear.
Thanks once again for reading the blog.

So. It doesn’t matter if you have just run the furthest you ever have in your life, or you neck kale smoothies every day. At some point between the ages of 40 and 50, you and I will have lived more than half our lives. The seesaw has tipped.
Suddenly, you’ve reached the age where you know you won’t ever play for your favourite football team. Or write a book that will change the world.More prosaically, you can’t progress in your job: your bosses are looking to people in their 20s and 30s because younger workers don’t cost so much or – and this is the punch in the gut – they’re better at the job than you are. Maybe you would like to give up work but you can’t, because your family relies on your income, so you spend your precious, dwindling time, all the days and weeks and months of it, doing something you completely hate.
