Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year. It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work. As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]
Wednesday 27th December 2017 Today was spent running around getting ready for the big games day tomorrow. I got up late, but hey, it’s Christmas so it’s allowed. Some of the snow had disappeared but the forecast said it was going to freeze which made me worry about people travelling tomorrow. I decided to walk [...]
Sunday 10th December 2017 Today was a rest day. After yesterday’s tournament disappointment I’d already decided that even if there was sparring today I wouldn’t be going. Just as well really as I woke up to a couple of inches of snow. I got woken by Kate messaging me some writing support. I didn’t mind, [...]
Sunday 10th September 2017 OK, I’m so ready for my writing vacation to be over. I’ve been so bored this evening, not knowing what to do with myself. At least some friends have been in the eyewall of Hurricane Irma so Facebook has been entertaining if nothing else. In less than a week I have [...]

Tuesday 30th May 2017 / Wednesday 31st Mat 2017 - Chasepalooza is over and now it's time to fly home from Winnipeg, travelling via Calgary.
Monday 29th May 2017 - With a day free in Winnipeg before I fly home, it's time to do some last minute shopping, pack the case and reflect on this trip.
Tuesday 30th May 2017 Today went past in a blur. In many ways I was glad it did. Endings are always hard and today I left Winnipeg to start my journey home. I’d got most of my packing done last night so it really was just a case of packing the electronics. But given that [...]
Monday 29th May 2017 I am beyond shattered. In fact, I can’t remember ever feeling this tired - not after the sleepless nights at Toy Fair when I had to upload via dial up, nor after Leo conferences where we’d stay up all night to make Breakfast Club. I woke about 9am, and pottered about [...]
Sunday 28th May 2017 - With our chasecation now over, we now drive the 16 hours back to Winnipeg non-stop, trying not to get lost on the way.
