2 weekends of inspiration and encouragement


I had the blessing of scooting off for two weekends, one after the other, on my own! The first was a weekend in Dublin. I caught up with lots of family, with two dear writing friends, with one of the first Christians ever to make a real impression on me, and I went to a …

Jam & Jerusalem, and Jane


I'm a total disgrace. This post has been sitting in drafts for ages - time has just been whizzing by and my diary has got way too full too quickly lately. So the writing time has again, been pushed to one side. It is now going in the diary, with all the other things, so …

Moving to the UK – it’s further than you think


The title of this blogpost will surely, one day, be the title of a book. I will write of how I took the 300 (ish) mile journey from Kildare, Ireland to Newport, South Wales - only to find that I might as well have come from the centre of a densely populated (but only by trees and …

Starting the New Year with reasonable demands


HAPPY NEW YEAR! I can still say that can't I? I'm never sure when it's too late to wish someone a happy new year... I've probably come back just in time. Speaking of my absence... I'm delighted to see that even though it's a month since I've written here, you've still been checking in and having …
