I wish I was a curtain!

A counsellor once asked me, “when did you last do something for you?” I scraped around for an answer. All were rejected as being “for others”.

Where’re you from?

I recently made a posting on Facebook that reflected the changes in my physical appearance. Though no doubt I am still classed as being ‘morbidly obese’, I have & am continuing, my metamorphosis.

Making a total Hash of it!

One of the key ingredients to the full “English” breakfast used to be the obligatory bacon and eggs. Black Pudding is less popular these days where it seems an American import, the hash brown, has gained popularity. Of course, the harsh brown is a German immigrant to the Amercian breakfast menu.

More coming up after the break

The thought of a four day weekend in Spring is something to look forward to. Unless of course, you’re a parent with school children. They get 14 days to celebrate Easter whilst their parents discover their own relationship with Deity, and are constant in prayer; for example, “Oh God what have they done now!”, “Jesus, let it be not…

Putting the Good into Friday

Arguable the most important weekend in the Christian calendar is Easter. Good Friday, the day our Lord gave up His life on earth, fulfilling His destiny & The Father’s commandment, only to be resurrected upon the Sunday. For most people in these days its purely a holiday not the holy day, from which the term is derived. It makes…
