I have decided to take a short career break as the company I was working for was ‘not for me’ and I needed to make a hard decision as to whether or not the job came first, or home life and job satisfaction was paramount. I obviously decided that the later, rather than the former, was the case and I finished there last Friday.
To all my former colleagues, I wish you well with your endeavors and hope that all goes to plan for you! For me, this is now time to take a short break, re-charge my batteries and consider the options available to me – of which there are a few thankfully!
Having spent the past 12+ years working in the public transport sector, I am interested in seeing what opportunities arise for me within this field, however, I am also looking into a few possibilities which will encompass my skills, knowledge and experience from within the voluntary sector too.
However, one of the first things we will be doing is booking a holiday to Thailand for next month, so we can go and sort out some things back there, catch up with family and friends, and generally have a relaxing time too!
Will let you know how things are progressing in due course.

I read tonight that City of Westminster officials are up in arms over the lack of any progress to date on the spoil heap otherwise known as Chelsea Barracks. Aside from being used to store barricades during the 2012 games, there is no sign of anything happening on yhis site.
Aside from being a visual nightmare, there is no positive value to this site remaining undeveloped.
Perhaps the close to 1bn expenditure on the site to date and the property market having collapsed has something to do with this.
Yet another promised set of social housing is not going to eventuate in the near, or far, future……

I am sitting here considering yes or no to renewal…. if I am to consider the other parties (Labour/Conservative/Green), I cannot see the attraction or interest.But looking at my own party which I have belonged to for a long time, I cannot see the point either at the moment,,.. We are tied into a coalition which is doing us electoral harm, with a party that we don’t really have anything in common with and they are ready and waiting to plunge the knives in constantly…

Please someone, remind me, are we in the 21st century? Does a London council need to be told what a Bank Holiday is in relation to parking restrictions?
This absurd non-joined up parking system which can result in one side of a road having one set of rules and the other side, a totally conflicting and differing set, has to end.
Mr Mayor, please take hold of this and do the following:
Create a uniform set of rules across ALL London boroughs
Set an Inner and Outer London Resident Parking Permit Fee
Permit short stay in other resident zones (say an hour) if you are in possession of a current resident permit
Create a uniformity to fines
Bring parking enforcement back under the auspices of the Met Police, making use of PCSO’s and TOCU to enforce rules and regulations
Once central query/information point across all London boroughs to deal with bay restrictions/suspensions, working in conjunction with TfL Streets
A full audit of roadside restriction signs and curbside markings, so that all restrictions are clear and legal, repainting and replacing signs as and where required
This is the start… I am sure that there are many other ideas which you can all contribute which would make this a good idea!
