Monday Morning Blog

 Happy December, at last I can start buying mince pies, I resist them from the middle of October when they appear on the shelves at Marks & Spencer, in my epicurean and gastronomic opinion the puff pastry ones are the nicest.

OMG another terrorist attack in London, innocent people injured and killed by a deranged radicalised nutter, it makes me so very angry. The only good thing is that the attacker is no more, he was subdued by brave selfless members of the public and then as he reached for what looked like a suicide belt he was dispatched by our courageous police officers, good riddance. Delighted to know that tax payers money is not going to house him, feed him, clothe him, keep him warm and secure him whilst he would have served what would have been a whole of life sentence in prison.

Good morning hope all is well, so it’s double figures for Monday morning , clearly I’m referring to my favourite subject, the weather, only just double figures at 10 degrees this morning, better than over the weekend, although still damp and that’s an understatement. 

I hope you had a good weekend, last week of November guys which whilst it brings us a month closer to Christmas and the New Year, it also brings us a month closer to my favourite month April, when the days get longer and the days get warmer.  I’m not wishing my life away whilst April is my favourite month it’s also my worst month as I have to add another year, I’m really not looking forward to becoming forty, I would like to stay 37 years old all my life, to be fair I have been 37 years old for a least the last 15 years. 

The political party manifesto have been published but still my preferred early morning literature is...

Hey, hey bright, cold and crispy Monday morning greetings, I hope all is well and that you had a great weekend. It sure is beginning to look a lot like Christmas is on its way, it certainly was looking that way in Rome last week, Malta the week before, not seen what London is up to yet might do that next week after my few days in Barcelona.

I was in Rome Wednesday and Thursday, I flew back Friday afternoon, I can understand now why they call it The Eternal City, it took an eternity to walk round it 😊.  I was there meeting with a DMC, after meeting and presenting to them they asked me what I would like to do and I said I would like to walk the city. Walking the city is so much better than driving.

The weather was dry, sunny and warm I had a list of must see sights and I did them all except for The Vatican as I had in previous years been there and done that, I guessed as I had seen St Paul’...


Awesome Monday morning greetings from London W10, I hope all is well with you and that you had a great weekend. What a sparkling start to the week in London; sunny, dry and extremely crisp! Aka cold.

I hope you had a great weekend, I was in Malta with Erika, Claudia, Douglas, Helga- the team at Mi Malta DMC and ten amazing conference and incentive clients.  We landed in sunshine on Friday afternoon and we took off in sunshine on Sunday afternoon, 22° C during the day and 16° C at night, what’s not to like 😊  We stayed at the Westin Hotel in St Julian’s, their guest rooms are huge; all with balconies and a view of the sea. It’s a simply lovely hotel, I have stayed there a few times and the lounge bar area is so very cosy and just the way a hotel type place should be. I like Westin as a brand and the W...

Monday morning greetings from London W10, I hope you are well and have finally dried out from the torrential rain on Saturday. I guess the sunny start on Sunday morning helped.

Well done to South Africa winning The Rugby World Cup, well done to Japan for staging what seemed to be via the TV an amazingly successful Rugby World Cup a good test run for The Olympics 2020 and finally well done to the England Rugby team who worked so hard to get to the final and who perhaps peaked too early by beating The All Blacks, that result was almost but only almost as good as lifting the World Cup for The England team. Finally well done to Wales  

I spoke to Shaun Blake and Brad Glenn of The Inside Edge Southern Africa the DMC MM and Company have been representing for twenty years, to say the guys were delighted with the result for them and for the entire country of South Africa would be an understatement...

Good Monday morning I hope you are well and that you had an amazing weekend. Did I say AMAZING, that was what the England Rugby team were on Saturday. What a result, got to love Eddie Jones, the interview he gave a few days before the game “pressure what pressure it’s the All Blacks under pressure we are the underdogs” talk about pilling on the pressure. Well done Eddie and the team, they can go all the way for sure. Well done to South Africa and commiserations to Wales. This will be a very thrilling final I am sure Shaun, Brad and the team at our DMC The Inside Edge DMC Southern Africa are delighted with their team’s performance.

So Monday morning again and another week at work, I’m in Manchester, Leeds, Leicester and London seeing some of MM and Company’s awesome clients, there is nothing better I like than being on the road.  I’m doing a Mexico focused Day of the Dead sales blitz and t...

Good morning. OK who can tell me what happened to the weekend? I am sure weekends finish far quicker than they used to.

So Monday morning again, sending you warm greetings from London W10, I hope you are well. Wow what a sparkling day it was on Saturday, not only was the weather awesome, the England Rugby Team were more than awesome in Japan, soundly beating Australia to go into the last four all very exciting.

Last week I was in Bilbao, Spain I have wanted to see what Bilbao is all about for some time. Spain is one of the most frequently requested  destinations that the team and I at MM and Company represent. Most of the time clients ask for Barcelona, followed by Madrid then then the Spanish Islands. I went to Bilbao and found a great alternative Spanish city. Direct flights from Gatwick with British Airways, Iberia (Vueling Airlines) as well as budget airlines. Only 90 minutes away, the...

Happy European Monday morning greetings from London W10, is it possible that we only have three more Monday mornings left in the EU?  The mood music is getting very interesting, you couldn’t make it up if you tried.  As for the EU Brexit challenge splitting up families and friends, I find that almost too hard to believe, yes it’s a passionate argument but to break up families to stop people talking to each other, I can only deduce from that, they didn’t want to talk to each other in the first place and just needed an excuse and Brexit was that excuse. 

There is no doubt about it, Brexit is giving businesses in general a challenge or two but it will soon be over or will it? By now you know my feelings I just want bit done and could not give a rat’s behind as to how it is done.  I think we will leave on the 31st October and I also think it will be with some sort of deal with an ex...

Warm Monday morning greetings on this slightly chilly and wet first day of the working week. So how was last week for you? I had a great week but cramming five working days into three was a challenge.  If you were celebrating New Year last week I hope it was a good one and that the year ahead will be a fun, happy, healthy and sweet one.

We co-hosted a great event last week with Unico Hard Rock hotels and the Eden Rock Nobu Miami, we were representing our DMCs, the EPIC Group Mexico and C Florida Hospitality.  The Tequila flowed, the Mariachi band were awesome and the trade show presentation turned into a great party which I felt all day the following day, worth it for sure.

WH Smiths commmeee oooonnnn do me a favour. In the shop window of WH Smiths on Finchley High Road was a banner advertising books saying “Santa shops here” for goodness sake Halloween is still three weeks away, Guy Fawke...

Happy Monday, I totally believe that Mondays can be happy, you just have to try hard.  Last week the weather was awful such a lot of rain. Did you get drenched on Tuesday?  As usual London Transport couldn’t cope, tube stations were flooded, ours was at Queens Park W10, roads were flooded and I thought to myself, this must be what it’s like when a hurricane arrives.

Did you see the exchange in the House of Commons on Wednesday?  You couldn’t make it up and what’s scary, it’s real life, allegedly intelligent, educated men and women, mature men and women screaming and shouting at each other and these are the people that are supposed to be leading our country.  If just one of them spoke quietly in measure tones their voice would have been heard much better. 

Tomorrow is October 1st, is this the month Brexit will be solved?  To quote an amazing statement from Winston Churchill “...
