Thankful Thursday

Welcome to another Thankful Thursday, this time on a Friday, because I forgot. This week, I have enjoyed… Reading Blue Like Jazz by Don Miller (loved it). I’ve just started Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans (I follow her blog and really enjoyed her previous books). Writing Case studies for my book. Eating Healthily.

If you’ve missed it, it’s definitely worth iPlayering.… View Post

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope you’re able to find some time today for self-care, even if that means locking yourself in the bathroom with a handful of mini eggs and singing ‘Thine Be The Glory’ at full volume to drown out the sound of squabbling siblings. (Don’t say you’ve never been there.) Aaaaand… breathe. Here is Joanna’s Lego Easter. It was inspired by this video, currently doing the rounds on… View Post
