Home Alone

  When can you legally leave your child “Home Alone”? Many parents find themselves considering leaving their children home alone while popping out to the corner shop for a pint of milk or to post a letter.

Not one, but two feet in mouth!

20/20 hind sight is a wonderful thing.  I’m sure we’ve all looked at things that we (or our clients!) have done, that looked reasonable at the time, but then realised how differently things would have gone if we had been able to predict the future.   However, there are just as many occasions where you […]

Post-nup

Already married and missed the pre-nup boat? Don’t worry, the ship hasn’t sailed.     You may have heard of a pre-nup. Especially if you’re an avid American celebrity gossip follower.

Sign Posts

Signs can be very important in our lives.  The sign that warns us that a product contains nuts can be a life saver.  Unless, of course, you don’t have a nut allergy.  Or unless, of course, the product is a bar of nuts in which case, if you have a nut allergy, the warning is […]

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

  That might depend on what the words are.  It’s possible that an ill timed comment can cost you more than a priceless painting!   A report from Harvard Business School (which I’ve just visited!) looked at recent instances of CEO misbehaviour and found that the average comment (or action) resulted in 250 negative news […]
