More excuses


Sorry sorry sorry – I know I was supposed to be writing more but life managed to get in the way again

Long story short (and there is quite a long story but more on that another time) just before Christmas I stumbled over the opportunity to switch to a slightly different job for […]

How do you eradicate sexism and unconscious bias?


Today I was staggered to be involved in an email chain amongst my work colleagues which showed just how ingrained some sexism is, how much unconscious bias is sitting beneath the surface, how much we still have to do to eradicate it all – apparently our PA’s birthday present has always been organised by one of the women in […]

Where does ‘mucking around’ end and harassment begin?


If you are a man in a work environment you have probably never felt singled out for being a man, embarrassed by personal comments on your appearance or attire, or been the butt of endless jokes about your love life, sex life, inability to be as good as your female colleagues just by dint […]

Dragging myself out of the rut


I guess the good news is that I have realised that I am in an rut – it’s taken long enough for that to happen but the reality is that I am firmly stuck in here and I need to get myself out.


My life feels as if it has rather been on […]

The Friday Rant Club – the double whammy penalty of part time work


Yes I know part time work has made my life a million times better – I see more of the girls, I get less resentful when I have a week like this one and don’t see them for days in a row and life has a one day reset button.  It is a good […]

Every cloud has a silver lining… or something


As you may have noticed, things around here have been a bit of a misery-fest.  2011 did its absolute best to get what had been a fairly rubbish year to go out with a bang.


Thanks for that 2011 – really appreciated your efforts.


And then, despite having very low expectations, 2012 […]

Could someone please find me a wife


No I’m not divorcing Mr Muddling and announcing that my preference has changed gender.  Although that would probably send my page views rocketing through the roof momentarily, must make a mental note of that for next time inspiration flags.

No, I’m still me but I have realised that I am lacking something all my […]

And relax…


What a day


There’s nothing quite like that feeling when you FINALLY manage to send the last work email and start turning off the laptop.  The feeling of tension starting to ease out of your shoulders and your brain starting to turn off.


I knew it wasn’t going to be a great […]

Been off licking my wounds…


I think it is fair to say that the Big Meeting with Bossman was not an unqualified success and I’ve spent a few days off licking my wounds and taking some time to think.


It had been rather built up in my mind – this was going to be The Moment when I’d […]

Is there any job I’m qualified for?


The whole sheer unrelenting misery of my job from hell is making me consider looking at something else.  I mean if you find yourself sitting in the car at the station car park every night having a damn good cry before driving home then something might not be entirely right.

Or rather really wrong.
