Last year I was asked to enter a blog into the Millesima Blog Awards. It kind of came out the blue and I didn’t really know what the team at Millesima were after by asking me. I get a bit panicky when I think things look too easy or too good to be true. But dear me I’m glad I bit the bullet and did it. And fast forward 12 months and it’s open for entries for the 2017 award, and I can’t encourage enough to get some entries in there!

If anything, I’m not sure why I’m bothering with a “Coming Up On…” post today. If it’s anything like last week then it’ll be out of the window by Wednesday regardless. A mixture of Jury Service, trying to get two start-up companies off the ground, market trading, chasing up logistics companies…well, you get the point. My routine has been seriously messed up!

Tough old week last week as a couple of bits of news knocked me and my annoying anxiety issue all over again. I’ll get onto that news some other time, but thankfully it only took 2 days to get my head back straight this time. That’s pretty big progress for me!
