Have started a personal reading project. And book number 1 on my list was to re-read Kneeling with giants, by Gary Neal Hansen. I first read this book probably in 2014 (maybe 2013). So nearly 10 years ago. Coming back to it, was a delight. Hansen basically takes a 1 chapter to outline a method … Continue reading Kneeling with Giants – A Crude Summary
From the 14th August to the 20th August, I've been reading through 2 Timothy. Here are a few of the things which have stood out to me: Fanning into flames 1:6-7 Paul encourages Timothy to fan into flames the gift of God. He then describes that God has given us a spirit of power, love … Continue reading Highlights from 2 Timothy
Parenting has changed me in lots of ways. I'm still getting to grips with most of them and probably haven't even identified half. But one of them is focus. Before having a kid, I had more free time.

The truth is I have too many books on my reading Wishlist, and given the rate at which I add more on, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that I will ever get round to completing it. At one point, I split my Wishlist into fictional and non-fiction. It is ridiculous! Furthermore, there are some books … Continue reading The Reading Wishlist
Since the beginning of June, I’ve been setting my alarm for 4.45 so I can take part in the 5am Club (after reading a book by the same name). It’s been really good and has helped me get a lot done. But this last week has been tough. With essentially 3-4 hours worth of “free … Continue reading Morning Routine with Rewards
Time for another weekly round up. My brother and I have birthdays 8 days apart, and so we managed to get in a family gathering before the UK started their second national lockdown. That means whisky round a fire pit, a lot of laughs and pulled pork burgers! I was at work Monday and Tuesday … Continue reading Sunday Summary 8th November 2020 – I’m 26 now!
Am going to post a little rapid fire this week: DIY Desk improvements - Every now and again I do some DIY that isn’t too complex, but that gives me an immense amount of pride. This week I tackled my desk. Since lockdown began, I’ve been working from home and my desk set-up has undergone … Continue reading Sunday Summary – 20th September 2020 “DIY Desk”
