A nifty fifty?

It’s finally caught up with me. I tried to ignore it and hoped it would go away but whatever I did it was destined to happen anyway. I was utterly powerless to prevent it. Resistance was futile. In the end I just had to take it on the chin.

Murder most fowl

The Osbornes recently suffered a tragedy in our menagerie (which is almost good enough to be the title of this blog, but not quite).

Oz’s Business Continuity Blog : “An icy crisis”

In my last blog I wrote about the trials and tribulations of working from home during a recent snowy period. What I didn’t mention was that the hassle of trying to work from home amid the Osborne menagerie was compounded by a small domestic crisis – the dreaded frozen pipes, which meant no running water in the kitchen […]

Oz’s Business Continuity Tip of the Month : “Re. the BC plan”

With the new year in full swing, many of us will already have forgotten all about our resolutions, focussing instead on the challenges that lie ahead. A new year is often a time of significant change, and this year is likely to be no different. In fact, many of us may be facing the prospect […]
