My youngest daughter passed her driving test just before Christmas — at the first attempt.
She's now got wheels: a little VW Golf.
It's things like this, even allowing for the pandemic, which means she can't go very far, that changes the order of things. My two other daughters don't live at home: both full-time students for now.
Sitting in my office (06:08), I suddenly realise that time really is marching on and it won't be long before [fill in the detail]. And here was me still thinking I was 21, give or take a year.
Hey, that's life, right?
It goes on.
- Fri, 17:00: A bit of work on a sponsorship deal today. It used to be a big part of my practice and it's always nice to see these things come together. Pretty vital for all the people involved -- Club, athletes and the community.
- Fri, 17:05: Listening to Joni Mitchell and feeling quite emotional. Another artist that my late uncle loved as do I. In fact, the older I get the more I've come to appreciate her vocals and songwriting.

- Sat, 11:02: Small world @M_Z_Harrison / I see you've written the introduction for A Black Fox Running by the late Brian Carter. I went to school with his daughter; he was a well-loved man who I'd regularly see playing football with the lads on Paignton seafront.
