Summer dreams

Summer has passed and September is quite firmly here. Fifteen days in and I haven’t quite got back into that ‘back to school’ routine. Fifteen days in and I’m holding out for the sweep of an Indian Summer and dreaming of the month that has passed. Summer is starting to find it’s place in my…

Single at a wedding

Sometimes, the best thing to do is not the easiest. I was invited to a wedding, and days before, I can feel that familiar voice creep in, “you are going to be single at a wedding”. Who am I kidding – it was there from the moment the invite arrived, whispering, mocking, encouraging me to…

The Gallery

Here we go, the ‘thing’ I’ve been wrestling to share. I don’t know what it is yet, what it could be or even if it is to be. There has to be a point where I set it free, otherwise what would be the point. Let me know if you have any thoughts, maybe I’ll…

Take That

A little thought Where do you draw your strength from? I was sat in the beautiful grounds of Abbey Physic Garden last bank holiday when this little one popped up next to me. Basking in the sunshine, with a book, a coffee and surrounded by nature, you could question my extrovert tendency! Fear not, I’d…

Just Stand

I believe God created us to walk and talk with him daily and find the actual practice of this hugely effective in calming my whelm. Recently though, when I’ve had these times of ‘hanging out’ Jesus has given me one gracious command. “Just Stand”

Life Lessons

So the other day, I was at the gym working on one of my 2019 goals – to complete the C25K app! This is definitely a goal I am having to bring a load of motivation into. Completing it will be both a struggle and a joy.

Age of Ultron

There are two main ways in which I am inspired; other than through being around inspiring people. Both paths work hand in hand, I can do one, or other, depending on the mood. Both work in my favour, even when I am not asking them to. One is a literal path, I am inspired when…

Deepen

Happy New Year! I hope the year has started you well – I have a slight sugar hangover, due to a well planned Chinese and Asti combination! Lots of water and movement is bringing the levels down though! I’ve just written my first journal entry of the year. Last year for me was full of…

Mess

The last thing she wanted to be doing was lying on the sofa, foot elevated, watching back to back films. There are times when rest is chosen and times where it is forced upon you. Truth is she’s in a bad mood. In pain, doing a mindless task that appears to be never ending. The…
