How are you coping on this lovely Monday morning? I’m not referring to coping with the fact that it’s Monday again because we cope with that every week, I’m talking about COVID-19. Bring back BREXIT 😊 onto the news headline. The media are talking Covid 19 Corona virus into a frenzy with people panic buying, stock markets dropping and drop kicking us all into a potential recession.
Challenges all over the World, what’s happening in Northern Italy with sixteen million people under quarantine, transport locked down could happen anywhere just the thought of being locked down in a hotel, cruise ship or even home is something I do not want to contemplate. Bad news that FlyBe has finally been grounded, is this the first business victim of Coronavirus, for sure it won’t be the last. OK FlyBe wasn’t in great shape before the virus thing but...
Happy Monday, I hope you are well, SERIOUSLY I hope you are well, the headlines are getting a bit “OMG” like, I have to admit even me, a glass half full type of guy is beginning to think how long is this going to go on for? It is getting concerning, more of that later.
It’s another Monday morning, the start of MARCH. Did you make the most of your extra day of life on Saturday it was after all 29th February a leap year.
The weather has been a huge subject over the past few weeks did you see snow on Thursday? was that the first and last snow of the season in London or do we have more to come? Sunday was a sparkling cold Winter going into Spring day I was outside most of the day it was cold but beautiful
I think it’s fair to say it’s going to be another week of uncertainty, uncertainty about what’s going on in the world and what the world governments are going to do about the Covid-19 Virus....
A very good Monday morning I hope you are well and that you had a great weekend free from floods and viruses
It’s a busy old month February, last week it was Valentine’s Day, this week Pancake day yeahhhh. Although pancakes seem to be Hannah’s favourite thing to cook so every week is pancake week in our house.
Not sure if it’s got anything to do with half term but it seems to be a very quiet news week last week except of course for that horrendous attack by a deranged right wing nutter in a town called Hanau then the attacked in Regents Park Mosque. It’s what I say to clients when they ask me, 'is going to xyz destination safe?' My response is always, everywhere is safe and nowhere is safe, but you have to be bang out of luck to get caught up in anything. Crossing London or Westminster bridge you stop for a coffee and miss the attack or you stop for a coffee and get caught up in i...
Good morning Happy Monday I hope you have dried out since the weekend wet weather or what?
Happy BELATED Valentine’s Day I hope you are well and have recovered from the many paper cuts and repetitive strain injuries from opening all your Valentine’s Day cards and gifts. I had to call the council for another paper recycle wheelie bin for ALL the envelope I had to open I kept the cards of course. I went to see our postman on Sunday he is in hospital suffering with a slipped disc from carrying all the cards to my front door yeah in your dreams David 😊
Corona virus boredom has set in, look I am sad for the people it has effected or it is affected in fact this virus thing has had an effect on the whole world. Trade is slowing, the “just in time” ordering system is getting screwed up as factories are closed down and in quarantine in China, lots of components for industry arrives “just in time”...
Happy Monday, although it seems to be a bit of an unhappy world at the moment, all this Coronavirus talk is not good for a lot of people but I would imagine Corona Extra beer brewed in Mexico management must be quite pleased that everybody is about Corona. I went out with some friends on Thursday night and all we drank was Corona Extra Beer brewed in Mexico with several huge wedges of lime.
Wow was it wild, wet and windy weather at the weekend or what? Storm Ciara showed everyone who was in charge. I went out for a run as usual on Sunday morning I shaved 85 seconds of my normal time for 8KM I was propelled along with the help of the strong winds. They say, the Newscasters that is that a British Airways jet arrived from New York an hour earlier than scheduled due to the strong Atlantic winds pushing it along.

Monday morning greetings from London W10, hope you’re well. Happy February, to be fair I wasn’t sorry to see the back of January although we and our DMCs were quite busy, January tends to be a challenging month.
Yesterday was 02-02-2020 spooky 😊
It’s about this time of year when I think to myself, I have had enough of being cold and I need some warm sunshine. The weekend has been quite mild, the daffs are in the shops; 99p a bunch. Some of the supermarkets even doing buy one get one free. Give it another couple of weeks and the daffs will be bright, breezy, yellow and orange growing on the roadside, a sign of good things to come.
BREXIT IS DONE
Have you seen the new “we are out of the EU Brexit 50p coin yet? Britain is an island once again, still connected to the EU by the tunnel but that is about it, a good thing? A bad thing? Time will tell and history will report.
Happy Monday morning and Happy Chinese New Year I wish you a great Year of Rat.
Just in case you plan to be going to your local Chinese restaurant any time soon Gong hei fat choy” is the most common Chinese New Year greeting in Cantonese, which is spoken in parts of southern China and Hong Kong. It directly translates to “wishing you great happiness and prosperity.” In Mandarin, the same greeting is “gong xi fa cai” (pronounced gong she fa tsai)
I hope you are well and that you had a great weekend its good news week, this is the week that sees January out which means it’s the end of the month and we get paid. Sadly the salary gets sent off to Mastercard, Visa and American Express to pay off for the excesses of Christmas, hey there is always February and that is a shortish month
Today is a very sad day, for some 75 years ago it was a very happy day, it is also a very important day, today is...
Good Monday morning, is that a statement or does it need a question mark, you decide. We are half way through January that’s almost unbelievable but a fact. It’s been a bit of a quiet news week this week, the Harry and Meghan story rumbles on, if that is indeed a story. It’s clear that the people in charge of the news have got fed up of the Australian fires even though they are raging. Now they are reporting floods, hailstones and copious quantities of rain in Oz poor people.
