By November 27, 2019 Blog

James Cary is Mr Podcasts and I was fortunate enough to be inquisitioned (is that a thing?) by him for The Inquisition Podcast. Listen in here as I talk about my story and the difference Jesus makes. And do subscribe to the Inquisition — a fab new podcast. Share…FacebookTwitterTumblrPinterestStumbleUponDiggemail

My first post

By May 16, 2019 Blog

Thanks for all of your prayers and messages of support for us over the next few weeks and months.  Thanks too for reading this blog! I realised today, it’s been nearly nine years.  So to celebrate, here’s my very first post…   I’ve finally caved in. I am now ‘a blogger.’ I’ve been holding out against this for a long time. My husband’s been nagging me to blog ever since he started 3 years ago. I’ve always called myself a …Read More

Happy New Year!

By December 31, 2014 Blog

Hello folks, Thanks so much for reading this year – and for your prayers, wisdom and support.  They’ve been a lifeline: and it’s a privilege to be part of such a loving and diverse community. So, as the new year rolls around, whatever 2015 holds, we’re in it together…and thank God, we have a beautiful Saviour who goes ahead of us, carries us and lights the way. I’m heading off now for some holiday/maternity leave – so there’ll be no …Read More

Thank You.

By November 2, 2014 Blog

Yesterday I had the privilege of winning ‘Blogger of the year’ at the Christian New Media Awards. It’s a shocker and a real honour and I’m dealing with it in my usual gracious manner, (so far a messy combination of denial, painting the cupboards green at 4,30 am this morning and then having a little weep in Sainsburys). Awards are funny things (see this post) and I know, as you do, that there are hundreds of blogs out there that could and should get the same …Read More

The Limits of Blogging

By September 9, 2014 Blog

One of the things I love most about blogging, is being part of an online community. It’s given me the chance to talk with an incredible group of people; to share life and develop my thinking in ways that I’d never have predicted.  There have been many times when I’ve relied on the wisdom and prayers of people I’ve never met; and I thank God for you and your encouragement and support. Plus, it’s not just me. For those who are sick or housebound, …Read More

New Name, New Face

By January 23, 2014 Blog

You’ve probably spotted that the blog’s had a face-lift. It’s the same old rantings, but hopefully a bit easier to read and navigate.  Big thanks to The Amazing Hugh Bo for all his patience and hard work. You’re a blog legend, Hugh. I’ve fought tooth and nail to retain the wood background, which I’m told is dated and naff and all sorts of wrong.  (There’s apparently a reason you don’t see it on other blogs). But I think I like it. …Read More

Thank you for your prayers for today’s appointment at The Scary Mole clinic.  They’re taking that bad boy off and doing a biopsy, but not for a few weeks – which I’m taking as a good sign. What it has done is make me realise how much I appreciate my friends – including this amazing blog community.  I thank God for you and for what He is showing me of Himself through your care. It’s been lovely – but also upsetting – even …Read More

Roll of Awesomeness

By January 6, 2013 Blog

watching someone being pooped on by a seagull. Then telling them it’s ‘lucky’. the word ‘poop’.   Also ‘insidious’, (especially if you imagine  Brad Pitt saying it in a perfume ad) rude-shaped vegetables. blog commenters. Beauties, every one of you. Kiera Knightly and Jude Law in the same movie. (One film spoiled instead of two and the mother of all pout-offs). Discovering an advent chocolate that got missed in the rush. (Who cares if it’s hairy) The existence of Bon Jovi. the last brussel …Read More

Letter From The Hospital

By January 5, 2013 Blog

Sorry for blog hiatus. I’ve had that noro thing (which Will Not Leave) and then last week I got a letter from the hospital.  I went to the doc about the cough but while I was there got him to look at a mole, (I’m a big fan of getting everything sorted in one appointment.  Same philosophy as tidying up the floor when I bend down to pick something up).  Anyway, the doc seemed a bit worried and then on …Read More
