September …

Half way through September already. How’d that happen? Feels like it was only a few weeks ago I had paid the deposit for our holibobs and yet here we are a couple weeks post jolly and feeling a bit blue.  I hate the post holiday blues, however this year they’ve been quelled slightly by the fact I’ve already booked next years. We’ve not been in a position to do that before and it was great! We’ve booked to go to the Isle of Wight, which my girl is already dubbing it our ‘nearly almost abroad holiday’ bless her. She’s possibly […]

Seeing red …

There’s no doubt I have a fiery temper when pushed too far, but this is not a post about that. It’s all about my hair! Yes superficial and shallow though it is, changing ones hair colour can be wildly uplifting, liberating or heart breaking. I’ve experienced all of these in my time of colouring my hair.

Sure I know it is only for a short period, but […]

As I sit at times contemplating life in general I often think back to my youth and think of the dreams I had for my future. I had plans to graduate as an army officer, until a careers advisor told me I’d be better suited to secretarial work. Then I had plans to top the legal profession and become a barrister, which were dashed by poor choices and a desire […]

Hello 2016 ….

2015 went by so fast! It felt like it went past in a blur and it’s hard to remember everything that went on. There were a few changes to our lives, the biggest of them was moving church last Easter. I cannot believe we have been in our new church family for 9 months! It took a while but we feel very settled and content, and we love the warm welcome we have received from the family there. Although a very difficult decision, one we prayed over for a long time, we thank God for His reassurance that we are […]
