  • Invest In Me

    By on April 9, 2014
    If I had £5000 to play with I would invest it in my next book ‘I Hate Housework’. A book is a business; a start up. I know that in order to drive sales and get the book into bookshops I need to be able to order a print run and invest in marketing. It’s the law of speculate to […]

  • Real Life – If It’s Broke Fix It

    By on March 21, 2014
    On the 1st May 2014 I am withdrawing my book A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline. If you want a copy for posterity, then you need to seize the day and buy it now because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. As it is print on demand and I think there are only around 250 hardcopies in […]

  • Barbaric Baguette Eating Banned at Bulford Army Camp Officer’s Mess

    By on March 5, 2014
    Oh no Hagar can’t have sandwiches for lunch anymore. I had heard about this infamous email beforehand and I have mixed views about it.

Not that I pay a ridiculous amount of attention as they have varying degrees of accuracy, but I somehow find it soothing to read them. They give me time to take a moment and decide to […]

  • Real Life – The Tipping point Yo!

    By on January 25, 2014
    Today, I reached a tipping point. January 2014 is nearly done and dusted. 2014 lies ahead. Last week, I nearly threw in the towel on the my beloved book – A Modern Military Mother – Tales from the Domestic Frontline. I doubted myself. The naysayers were winning. Is it worth it?

  • Five top tips for building your pension

    By on October 17, 2013
    For many, the idea of a pension – or having to actually do something about it – seems remote and strange.

  • Uniform Equals Professionalism

    By on July 17, 2013
    Understanding the importance of uniform In any workplace, a uniform is important. Whether you’re in an office that doesn’t deal directly with customers or something more directly interactive, there is always an argument for a uniformed appearance. The benefits of a uniform, professional appearance are well documented but you should also try to understand what the customer may expect and […]
