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 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...

Serving in stillness (rest)

This weeks theme is rest and it’s something I’ve actually found myself ahead of the ball on for once. I’m fighting for alone time but I’ve found a rhythm that, at least for the while, seems to leave me less exhausted and more excited than...

heart-worn and refined

February seems to be redefining my word of the year – Invest. When I thought about ‘Investing’ at the beginning of the year it was much more about getting my house in order, about being in the moment and cutting back on the dross that filled my time...

The goggle box

I’ve noticed a pattern, it’s a sad one and one I’d vowed I’d never fall prey to, but alas I have a kid that totally over-consumes on screen time. In some senses it’s not really surprising. We have more screens per room in this place than...

Tonight Santa comes

He’ll arrive in a similar style and with an much magic as he did on December the 25th, but here Santa comes on new years eve. Adam is still blissfully unaware, he’s unconstrained by dates, he had many an unopened present left on Christmas day, the whole...

A two year old

Last month Adam turned two. We bought him Lego Duplo which mummy and daddy Adam is having lots of fun with. I loved Adam’s first birthday party with the hordes of people and the slight chaos of having so many non verbal kids in one room. I loved the homely feel...

Appreciate update

So back in January I chose a word for the year, and that was Appreciate. It was a word that would change my perspective. It was a world that would push my comfort. and it was a word that would expose that which was ugly. Mid way through I learnt it’s the art of...
