A Long Day, But I Did Get An Ice Cream

Posted by Allen Jesson on

As I boarded my 8'o'clock train from Colchester to London, I must admit I didn't feel in the best shape. Nothing particularly untoward but I knew what lay ahead. My 'dodgy' knee wasn't feeling the best and I didn't feel that energized. Maybe something to do with the long day we'd put in previously, at the Chelmsford MBS Fair.

Let’s Talk About… Grief

Posted by Allen Jesson on

Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. You may associate grief with the death of a loved one – and this type of loss does often cause the most intense grief. But any loss can cause grief, including: a relationship breakup, a loss of health, losing a job, loss of financial stability, a miscarriage, the death of a pet, loss of a cherished dream, a loved one’s serious illness, the loss of a friendship or the loss of safety after a trauma .
