The after-school clubs have recommenced.
No more Zoom-style gymnastics where the sofas are used as launching boards, frustrated kick-abouts in the garden and tennis balls narrowly missing the kitchen window.
I would say peace has been restored, but we all know that would be a lie. I’ve swapped removing breakable china from the lounge while the boys practise back-flips, to becoming Dad’s taxi again.
A different day, a different club and with so long away from ferrying the boys about I almost need my own timetable.
I have actually had my own sporting triumph this month after being asked to take part in a charity golf tournament through Stephenson Smart for the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn.
In the few hours I took off from being Dad and considering I had only played golf once this year I managed to get a hole in one. No one was more surprised than me.
We normally take part in a few charity golf days a year supporting clients, but sadly this year these haven’t been able to happen.
As usual, I’m interspersing all these sporting activities with my day job.
Succession planning looks at how a business will continue and what changes need to be put in place when someone at a management or ownership level leaves or retires.
We help to identify key positions, needs and support the transition.
I also advise sole traders with final accounts and tax returns so that the process to retirement or a new venture is very smooth and straightforward.
It can be a very difficult and unnerving time when these changes take place and it is our priority to put our clients at ease and make sure they have all the information they need.
When I retire, I think I’m going to play more golf. In the meantime I need somewhere to practice at home.
I guess the lounge is now free.
