Small Practice Blog

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.

As some readers know I used to report on my weekly weigh-ins. I stopped this, in order not to bore readers. My weight loss progress was mixed up to the end of last month. This month it has been on the up.

I am in Starbucks enjoying my favourite drink and I have been leafing through now out of date Accountex 2013 magazine.

Mark Lee has written an introduction as a guest editor. All okay, till I saw what I would call Mark's tag line - boring is optional. It just winds me up!

My sister and I get on. She is a year older than I am. She is a really bright and an incredibly hard working person.

I really missed my second monitor yesterday. It just shut down on me. I tried everything, nothing worked.

At the moment my work load is heavy. The two VAT enquires are time consuming. It requires going over  previous accountant's work. 

I also have a PAYE enquiry, that I have not even started looking at. In addition, I have some statutory accounts to file and  VAT returns to complete.

The number of commercial blogs on AW is on the up. I would not mind this, if the content of these blogs went  beyond promoting whatever that is being flogged.

I really wanted to attend Accountex event today. I did not since I wanted to catch up with work. I ended up not doing a single thing in the office today.

Whilst working away on a lovely sunny day yesterday, I was not happy to receive an email from a freelancer client saying that he is moving on.

I had the last couple days off work. I am back in the office this morning refreshed and a little over whelmed on work that I need to do.
