Sunday Column (56)

Another week full of virus or flu or bug – I am getting seriously fed up. I just hope it gets better, but hey – it can’t get worse. Really, just today I noticed that I got better. I still feel weak, and all the DIY over the weekend didn’t help, but it needed to be done.

It was a busy week on top of it. But it was good busy if that makes sense.

One of the highlights was me speaking at an event from King’s College London on Online Reputation Management. Presentation below.

I really enjoy speaking and engaging with students and sharing my knowledge with them. And, according to the feedback, they did too! One of my aims is to work part time as a lecturer for digital marketing, or a running a course on inbound marketing. Something along those lines would be great! That would be, if I had the time of course 🙂

The other, and main highlight is Colin: my wee man is now properly moving forward and gets better by the day. He was poorly too but recovered now. Did I mention he spewed on his new car seat and in the new car. Never mind…..

It is a joy to see him growing up and my wife is documenting every move with her camera, which is even better. If we are friends on Facebook or you do receive our updates, then you know what I mean. He is VERY cute (although I totally understand me being biased 😉 ).

I am trying to work out a new schedule too – on the one hand I have more work, and that will lead me to stay in the office longer hours than before. However, on the other hand, I would like to spend more time with Colin. A dilemma that is not too easy to be solved. One way I believe is to go home early and then do more work once he has gone to bed. An alternative is to see him in the morning and possibly not going in until 9:30 but not to see him at night. I am still debating, and whenever you ask someone experienced, the answer is “see him in the morning because you never know when you get home”. Guess they are right.

Guess this is enough for another Sunday. I am feeling, as mentioned, much better, and hopefully I will be back to normal within the next few days. I have a busy week ahead, and I am looking forward to it!

Have a good one too,
Volker
