Blogmas Day 19: Why?

Sometimes horrible things happen. Terrible, awful things. Like earthquakes. And floods. And hurricanes. People die, families are torn apart and there is grief. Real and palpable and painful, everywhere. And we, as humans, we look up. Up to God or some higher being and we raise our arms at Him or them, or whatever it […]

Blogmas Day 18: Carols by Candlelight

The church looks gorgeous at this time of year. And nothing makes it look prettier, than a candlelit service. And nothing says (or perhaps, sings is more apt) Christmas like a good old-fashioned carol service. And on Sunday, after a frantic day of organising, running and speaking at a youth service, having a Christmas lunch […]

2013 Review: Some call it coincidence, I call it God

I’d forgotten that it snows in winter on WordPress. As I log on this evening, on New Years Eve Eve, it’s these cascading freckles of snow that remind me of the crazy year that is nearly done in its falling. 2013. What a year.

He’s her One and He’s that little girl’s Dad

Could it get any worse? Could I possibly feel more ridiculous than I do this very moment? Probably not.

Monday: The Good  Getting to see the glorious shard due to a diversion. The Bad A busy, busy day. The Autumn period is c-r-a-z-y in publishing. The Unexpected My 18:05 train was cancelled. Which meant I had to catch the train to London Bridge to get home, which also meant getting the train that ends […]

Week 38: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good The above. Treating myself to a gorgeous swedish pastry on a cold and wet September morning. The Bad Feeling guilty for not looking after Gray C better. I’ve been too busy being busy to stop and give my pet bunny some attention. So I’m making her a cardboard castle and vowing to […]

Week 25: (A pretty significant week) The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good My second round interview; I prepared well and I think it went just right. I hope so anyway! The Bad Being unable to unlock the back door. Getting a bit hysterical and punching the door repeatedly in frustration, bruising my wrist as a result. Wishing I had a boyfriend to come round […]

Week 23: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday: The Good Listening to my Gatsby soundtrack on the way to work and feeling like the bees knees, its arms and legs as a result! The Bad The bus and it’s inability to wait for me to get off the train. The Unexpected Finding out that the abandoned computer on my desk at work, […]
