Embracing Life

  My husband recently observed that almost ­­everything we are striving for in our home is, in one way or another, either creating – or sustaining – life.  That’s our vision, our dream, our plan.  We sow cabbages; then we wipe caterpillar eggs off them. We hatch out ducklings; then we feed them and muck […]

Help! I’m allergic to lists.

  I have never favoured lists, but since marriage to my darling husband 10 years ago, my aversion has only grown.  Writing lists is, to him, as breathing oxygen.  He writes enough lists for me and our entire extended family too.  If only I could outsource my list requirements to him. Due to my allergic […]

Pinnies from Heaven

There is a wonderful lady, Sherry Hayes, who – although I have never met her – has been a great inspiration to me over the past couple of years.  I aspire to be a kind, patient, creative, organised and (above all else) loving mother, and she is providing real life examples to motivate and inspire.  […]

Back to homeschool

It’s been a beautiful and busy summer for us.  Here we are at the Field of Dreams, the UK’s largest wildflower meadow, down in our corner of Somerset.  We’ve harvested and eaten hundreds of strawberries (Pimms, anyone?), watched the World Cup, broken a leg (literally), had the archery set out lots, celebrated ten years of […]

Hello blog!

Wow it’s been a while….please forgive my waywardness, just been living a little more real life! Here’s a clip from a gig I did recently with a band I’ve joined called The Omega Project.  I’m singing the old 60’s song Sunny.  Apologies for the not perfect quality 🙂 Now I must get round to some […]

The Power of a Song

A melody can steal your heart.  A lyric can capture your thoughts.  A song can change your life. Music is a strong communicator and a powerful expression.  It expresses straightforward opinions and complex emotions.  It challenges social mindsets and promotes political agendas.  Music helps us to connect, helps us to understand, and in doing so […]

Great Blogs on Music & Faith

One of the main by-products of getting on the Twitter bandwagon is that I’ve read lots of excellent and frankly fascinating blog articles.  Just lots of original, creative, challenging thoughts from a bunch of ordinary people I’ve never met.  Admittedly usually they share common interests and themes. So here’s my blogroll so far on music […]

Freedom!

“Christ has set us free to live a free life.” – Galatians 5:1 The Message Some of us take our freedom for granted.   Some of us are thankful for it every day.  We all experience freedom in different ways too.   For some of us it’s being able to choose to educate our kids at home, […]

The Truth About Jesus: Good, but Not Safe

From The Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe (C.S.Lewis): “Is he a man?” asked Lucy. “Aslan a man!” said Mr Beaver sternly. Certainly not. I tell you he is King of the wood and the son of the great emperor-beyond- the-sea. Don’t you know who is the King of the Beasts? Aslan is a lion […]
