What Do a Goat & a Papaya Have In Common?

How many Covid cases are there in the UK? It’s an important question. With shops, bars and restaurants reopening, we need to know how many cases there are, in order to be able to make the right decisions about where to go and who to visit. You’d think it would be a simple question to answer too. Do the tests. …

Better Than Christmas!

I’m so excited! I’m not going to lie – lockdown has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I’ve had up days and down days. Good weeks and bad. The business has had to overcome challenges I could never in a million years have predicted – in fact, Covid has been impacting freight for nearly 8 months now! I’ve had to …

Where’s The Silver Lining?

As you know, I love a good holiday. Every year we pack our bags and spend a couple of weeks away with the family in a nice resort. All-inclusive, great weather, a nice pool and beers on tap… But this year is going to be a little different. As summer fast approaches many borders are still closed. Travel is much …

My Birthday Wish…

I don’t like to blow my own trumpet – but today is my birthday! 29 again! Only kidding… this year I reach level 49 and I’m truly thankful for every birthday I get to celebrate. But this birthday is a little different. Thanks to lockdown there’s no pub, no parties and no big celebration. Just me, my family and a …

Cowboys & Indians?

As you know, I send out stories, ideas and anecdotes every week. And I get a lot of replies. Sometimes people share their own stores with me in return. A few weeks ago I sent out an email about how gangs have found a new way to capitalize on the current COVID situation – smuggling fake medicines and PPE into …

Blowing Your Own TRUMP-et?

I love a good Trump joke. I know he’s got a fair few supporters, and a fair few haters, but he entertains me for sure. When he’s not making bizarre suggestions like injecting disinfectant to treat coronavirus, he’s making sexist comments or declaring that global warming is something the Chinese made up! While I find the concept of him being …

Who’s Steering The Ship?

Ever watched one of those “car-crash” type videos? You know the ones where you can see something is going to go terribly, terribly wrong… but you can’t do anything to stop it? Earlier this week I came across a video of a container ship crashing into a crane at Busan New Port terminal. It was painful to watch. It all …

Be Like Jack…

I can’t get away from it. It seems wherever I look, my inbox, my newsfeed or even LinkedIn, Coronavirus is all people are talking about. I get it. It’s big news. Probably the biggest we’ll ever see in our lives. But we’re in it for the long haul and I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get a …

6am Wake Up Call?

Things have changed. Over the last decade, the likes of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter have taken over the world. More and more people have started to network online – and I can see why. It’s easy – you don’t even have to leave your desk to do it. It’s time-efficient – no travelling, no big chunks of time taken out …

Like a Kid in a Sweet Shop

I love a good trip to Poundland. If you don’t know, Poundland is kind of a discount surplus store. They sell everything from toothbrushes and deodorant to fancy dress and dog treats, all for £1. But I don’t go for the cosmetics. Every 3 or 4 months I make a quick trip to stock up my sweet supplies for my …
