It took me ages to choose which course to go for, did I go for a WordPress course, that would have been really useful for me and my blog. Did I learn something entirely new? Dog Walking, Payroll or Floristry. With over 200 courses to choose from it wasn’t easy for me but I settled with coding for a few reasons. Continue reading New Skills in Your Time

Bridgestone: Chase Your Dream, No Matter What

A little while ago I went to an event with Bridgestone. This was primarily to find out about their Driveguard Tyres but it was also about the ways they are working with schools and sports and various sponsorships, including the Olympics. So comes the Chase Your Dreams, No Matter What campaign. It is just so positive and inspiring I had to share it.

My excitement was untrue.
