I’m back! for National Flash Fiction Day


It's been over a month since my last post and if you read it, you'll know I got a bit disillusioned with the whole blogging thing, mainly as yet again, I failed to complete the AtoZ Blogging Challenge. I suppose I have to come to terms with the fact that daily blogging is just not …

Flogging :(


Flogging - my own term for 'failing to blog'. For the second year in a row, I failed to complete the A to Z Blogging Challenge. It frustrates me that I didn't finish the challenge. I have always loved the challenge but I don't think I will try it again next year, unless my life …

A telling of Matthew 21


As it is a non AtoZ day, and it's Palm Sunday, I wanted to share what we heard in church this evening. Our preacher did something a little different and told the story of Matthew 21 from the point of view of one of the pilgrims to Jerusalem. I just had to share it. Hope …
