Just to simply be a Mummy….

For that is what I am, perhaps you are too?

Being a mummy is a wonderful journey into proving all the books wrong and discovering that your kid doesn’t fit into either a round nor square hole, do join me for the journey.

Summer Reading ending well.

The summer reading challenge set by Amy from The Messy Middle has been quite the companion these last couple of months. Being terribly padantic I chose to wait until the official start of Summer on June 21st to begin (only 20 days late). August 17th is the official...

Summer Reading 8 -10

I was tired and grumpy, seeming to have lost my spark and with the boys only just recovering from being knocked down with horrid summer colds we were overdoing binge watching, facebook vortex and general screen time zombie-ism. August had dawned and summer stretched...

Summer Reading 5+6+7

Usually I read before bedtime, this last slot of the day used to hold meaningless browsing and equally addictive game apps but no longer. Sometimes I get the odd extra time but this past week, with my little one being ill, I’ve had time a plenty to indulge the...

Summer Reading 4

We are blessed to spend Sundays with Baba, at her house on the outskirts of the city. This year, as I’ve nurtured my love of reading I’ve taken to packing a tablet in the bag and this weekend as the electricity failed and the kids played I found myself...

Summer Reading 2+3

I was scrolling through the reading challenge list and it inspired me to look a bit wider and perhaps read things I’d not have looked at before. As my budget is only £10 I decided that this was a perfect time to go scrolling on the kindle unlimited list and hope...

Raising a Foreigner

I sat in the maternity ward watching the other mothers fuss over their new charges. Some were questioning everything, so unsure of themselves. They fretted, all of them. Fretted about feeding, burping, the rest of the family, the visits, the suddenly unfamiliar body...

Summer reading 01

The summer solstice has passed and summer has officially begun. This year we have no flights booked. A whole summer stretches out before us, promising days of 40 and mosquito swarms, drippy ice-creams and festival music. This summer I’m taking up a few mini...

Let us pray

I love prayer, I love to dive into prayer, immerse myself under the water and allow my body to sink just a little before resurfacing. But deep prayer needs time to develop, to root and to grow, even neglected it pulls on that deep history of relationship and tension...

Descending

Humility teaches us that we don’t have to obey our emotions because the only version of reality that matters is God’s. (H Anderson. Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul) I’ve been on an unwitting journey. As January unravelled into the new...

Reversing the flow

As part of my year of investing I’ve been trying to invest in my spiritual well being a bit more. It’s easy to pass the buck on this, onto the scripture I need to study for ‘work’, the time spent in church buildings, the ever filling prayer...

Building Easter brick by brick

Every Easter, bar one, for the last 17 years of my life I’ve been able to walk into Sunnyside church and proclaim Christs resurrection surrounded by faces who have journeyed alongside me. It changed this year. It was the first Easter we didn’t travel and...
