A year in people #91 – Rich C

Me and Rich used to work together in Lincoln, although not that closely. Our interactions would be mainly light chit chat and a few laughs when I’d head over to the ‘other side’ (we had two offices, one on either side of the building) to mill about and catch up with people. So I didn’t really have much idea about his personal life, or what … Continue reading A year in people #91 – Rich C

A year in people #89 – the child(ren) I’ll [probably] never have

It’s not that I don’t want children, but I don’t not want them either. I’m indifferent. When I was younger, I remember saying that I’d be married and having kids when I was 25.

I met my ex-husband when I was 17 years old and went straight from living with my parents to moving in with him a few years later (I never went to university or lived with friends). Fast forward 13 years and a bit years to a few months after we separated, and I had to go to Wales to present at a conference for work. … Continue reading A year in people #86 – the person who wasn’t there

A year in people #85 – Nick J

Nick was a student who came to work in the University of Lincoln IT department in his second year, I was an IT Project Manager with a decent amount of working years behind me. He was jam packed full of fresh, incredible ideas with free reign to play; I was the sensible, boring person who kept mentioning ‘ongoing support’ and ‘processes and documentation’. I enjoyed … Continue reading A year in people #85 – Nick J
