Around this time last year, one of the rooms of our flat hosted an unwelcome army of visitors. Ants. They came crawling up through the carpet and all over my desk, chair and work out equipment. Last year, when I first noticed it was pretty shocking, it seemed like the ground was moving. It happens … Continue reading The Ants are back!
Sorry everyone for my inconsistent posting. I have an excuse, a valid one this time. Honest. A couple of years back I felt an urge to write a book. Me being me, a lot of focus was put on the planning side of it. However over the last few months, basically since 2020 I started … Continue reading First Draft Done!!!
Occasionally God interrupts my morning quiet time routine. These are exciting times and more often than not, I love to engage with Him in this. Today He presented a near-forgotten memory to my mind and asked me to 'wrestle' with Him over it. Bible down and prayer begins. When I was a teenager and up … Continue reading How Can I Improve?

I wanted to share a bit of that journey and what it's all been like. Since October 2017, I have … Continue reading The White Flag: Called and Equipped to do much.
And it's Monday again, and it's a bank holiday at that, so I've had another good long weekend. Feels like I'm getting a lot of time off work at the moment - which isn't a bad thing. But I forced myself to write this on Monday evening again, trying to build a regular habit of … Continue reading Heroes of the Faith
Well I’m having a pretty awesome evening. It’s Monday after work, and I’m kicking back with some blog writing. It’s been a while and I’m sorry. Sorry to myself for letting this slip.
