“Should I stay or should I go now? Should I stay or should I go now? If I go there will be trouble And if I stay it will be double. So come on and let me know” The Clash It’s sunny but cold here in Tramore. A sun cream and woolly hat sort of

Exiting Your Company – You have choices

I was back on the bike this morning for the first time in a month and boy did I suffer. I was flying early doors spinning away like a mad man to American Idiot by Green Day. Then Shane shouted those horrible words “turn it up” which means the resistance level. A few songs later

Family Wages – Keeping It In The Family

We are back after a week off. I was moving house, so packing, cleaning, and scrubbing took preference to our weekly blog. I still managed to indulge in plenty of chocolate on Easter Sunday though! I haven’t gone far, only up the hill in Tramore, so my sea view has gone. I do a bit

Options To Exit My Business – Part 1
