‘A Light-hearted Post’

Many people seem to be struggling during these long winter months – especially with all the restrictions that are in place – and so -as I sat to write my blog today I decided to be light hearted – to bring a little fun into the day – and maybe a little laughter – for…

‘The Solitary Seat’

I’m loving the village we now live in – so enjoying and appreciating the fact that I can walk straight out of the door into the quiet of the countryside – or simply take a short stroll through the village itself. As in so many places a bench sits in quiet solitude – inviting –…

‘Blessings On This Day’

Today is the day of the year when we traditionally wish every one ‘A Happy – or Blessed New Year’ – however – as I sit to write I am so very conscious of the importance of each day – and so in the light of that I want to wish everyone ‘A blessed –…

‘A Christmas Blessing For You’

I realised today that in a weeks time Christmas will be upon us – so of course I really need to send my Christmas greetings to you all now – as somehow – although it won’t be as busy this year – my mind will be elsewhere next week! For me there is no better…

‘Walking New Pathways’

My walking boots came out this week – as I found time at last to get out and explore the new area where we find ourselves living. How fortunate we are to be able to simply walk out of our front door – straight into the countryside. A lovely quiet country road wends its way…

‘Entering A Season Of Hope’

This weekend we’ll be unearthing our boxes of Christmas decorations – having managed to get each room in the house looking like home and already enjoying being lived in, I love candles – and at Christmas time get the opportunity to put so many around the place – they always remind me of the hope…

‘Making A House A Home’

Just a week ago we moved house – what a day it was – and what a week it has been! So much to do – so many boxes – a herculean task of moving things around and finding room for all our belongings. Before we moved we decide to bring everything with us and…

‘The Wait Is Over’

It seems like it’s been forever – waiting for the house move to finalize – but today – that wait is over – today we get the keys to our house – and it almost seems unreal! The months of navigating the stress and frustration – that this process has brought with it – will…

‘Stress/Serenity’

We were hoping to move house this week – but the process has been delayed. This seems to be something very common – but to us – and to me in particular it’s proved to be very stressful. I guess I’m like a lot of people – so impatient when faced with delay – always…

‘Singing The Lords Song’

It’s been a difficult week this past week – I’ve struggled with the situation we’re in – felt frustrated and tired – emotionally as well as physically – I’ve even found it hard at times to ‘sing the Lords song’ – recalling the time when the Jews had been taken captive – were living in…
