Oh, the pleasure of a clean flat! I have never so appreciated my cleaner doing best what she does - cleaning. She has done a really good job today.
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.
I have planned before but it has not worked out on a long term basis to leave Fridays for myself and not to do any client work, unless it is urgent.
Well my office is no longer a tip. I cleared up yesterday and today.
I am still trying to recover from a terrible January. My cold is not helping at all. My office and my flat both are a real tip. Since Monday, I have been feeling exhausted and really sleepy. I have done very little work.
After a few weeks of using timesheets I have decided not to use them anymore.
We live in a highly connected world. This makes it so easy to ask more than few accountants for a quotation for compliance services required. I need to wake up to this world and face reality.
Walk into any supermarket or a department store today and what really hits you are those damn love hearts. They are right in your face. As if they are telling you if you are single you are not normal. Normal people buy those hearts for someone.
That was not a good January at all. As I have mentioned before it was better than all my previous years, it was just not good enough. I just finished my last tax return- time 11:01pm. This is cutting it fine!
My January has been far better than previous years. I now have only 2 partnership returns to complete one of which is about 80% complete and the other about 60% complete.
Virtually everyday I have a near miss with a car on my bike. Today was not any different.
