Hello folks. Once again, in the main, it was a client stress-free week. I think this will be the case until the new school term starts. Then, it will be more cars on the road, an increase in the number of client emails and let’s not forget changing the clocks to put the nation in a state of depression.

Hello folks. I think our beautiful summer is over. I am okay with this. It is still good cycling weather when combined with the BBC weather app on my smartphone. It beats facebook and twitter, in that it gives me useful information on which I base my daily decisions. Continue reading “My Week: Timeout”
Hello folks. I am pleased with the change in the weather. We needed the rain and it was good that temperature lowered. The days are getting shorter. I will miss the long days.

Hello folks. It was CTA exams results week. The dreaded email arrived on Wednesday morning with the result I was expecting – fail. As I have mentioned before, I did not have the time to cover the material.
I sat the examination mainly for the experience, after many years of not sitting any exams. The experience proved to be valuable.
I was a little surprised that the way the exams are taken has not changed after so many years. It is getting the maximum number of people in a hall with desks that are just too small. Advancement in technology has not resulted in advancement in this area. The current system appears to work. Continue reading “My Week: CTA results and my role”
Hello folks. My week was uneventful. That is not a bad thing. It means I did not have the usual client headaches. Further, I took it a little easy, since Q has taken over most of the day to day now.
I need to make sure, from next week, I address the practice value-adding activities. I now have the breathing space. Continue reading “My Week: Worth it?”
