Bouncing Back from Failure

So this post is not about where I've been, something I reviewed, travel, hotels or anything like that. This is a far more personal post that I've been wanting to write for a while but just haven't felt the motivation to do so. It's about bouncing back from failure. There are lots of lessons that can be taken from this post. It's helped me with some clarity first writing it, but it's also about looking on the positive side of things. It's about coming back from somewhere when you think you're at your lowest point - but actually you can bounce back from it.   So why I am bouncing back from failure? Back in 2015 I produced a winter…

Muscle Food Prepped Pots – Review

Since the Covid shut down lots of people have been looking at different types of food and how to eat healthier and also order on line.

One of those things which happened this week was for me to record a Mixcloud recording on Riffle Radio show . Riffle Radio is run by the lovely Ruari Cormack who took my old job when I moved onto a new company. The premise of the show is to pick 9 tracks all around a deck of cards theme. So: Club - Classic Jack - Guilty Pleasure track Diamond Geezer - Male Vocalist…

Lay-Z-Spa Rio Hot Tub Review

When the start of Covid/Corona virus started to become apparent that we could be facing a long time in "shut down" we started to make plans about what we might want to get us through the next few months. In came some bikes as part of the social distancing measures, along with a PS4 for me. My other half for months had badgered me that we should get a hot tub for home. I made the excuse that I didn't want to get one whilst we lived in rented home as it would be difficult to move. That was until we saw the Lay-Z-Spa Rio Hot Tub at a local super market. Now this had been the hit of last…

Chastise (The Dambusters raid) – Max Hastings Book Review

A fantastic book on the famous 1943 Dambusters raid. As someone who knows this amazing war event based on the film. This book goes a long way to give that film a more rounded view. The view of the film is that it was skill and the best pilots that got them through the raid but in fact it was much more a case of luck that gave them the success they had.
