Birthday parties

Saturday, September 23rd, 2023 | Family & Parenting

Venla had her second birthday party of the 2023/2024 year today. I’m not ready to have a daughter with a better social life than me. It’s too much too fast!

Griffeen parkrun

Sunday, September 17th, 2023 | Sport

Another week, another new parkrun. This is two laps of flat sith a short stretch through some trees but otherwise around the edge of fields. Unfortunately, I felt ill on the second lap and had to walk most of it. But I still came home in under 40 minutes so the first lap can’t have gone too bad. I managed to get a post-run brownie from the coffee van, too.

Psychology of Successful People

Learn the ten essential attitudes and behaviours we can adopt to make ourselves happier and more successful.

I originally developed this course in July 2021 as a personal development course. It teaches cognitive and behavioural pathways to success. What success means is up to you, but regardless of your goal there are a set of replicable strategies that can help.

The course has now been re-developed for Holbeck College. You can preview it here.

Waterstown parkrun

Waterstown parkrun celebrated their 400th event this week. Which meant there was cake! It is a lovely course, too, although has a fair few hills in it. Nothing too step but it is is up and down.

Dodder Valley parkrun

I’ve been doing some parkrun tourism recently. Yesterday, I did Dodder Valley. It’s a nice course. Two laps and mostly flat, with a slight rise on the second lap. Some lovely views looking down into the valley, too.
