LIFE | 2 minute musings

“The Church is not an automobile showroom – a place to put ourselves on display so that others can admire our spirituality, capacity, or prosperity. It  is more like a service center, where vehicles in need of repair come for maintenance and rehabilitation ” Dieter F Utchtdorf

Every time I venture to a new place one of the first things I do is seek out the local church

It’s something I’ve always done … ever since I was a little kid with dirty finger nails and scuffed knees . It was my thing.

I was always in awe of their grandeur and beauty. I explored churches and marked toilets out of 10. Anything that scored under a 7 and my mum would steer clear. I guess I came in useful for somethings Continue reading

Hello new bathroom and a what’s on my shelves

[Contains gifted items and affiliated links marked *]

We’ve given our bathroom a little make-over and today I thought I’d introduce you.

I say ‘we’ … to be honest apart from complain about the dust , make tea and choose the fabulous toilet seat I didn’t actually do that much . That was all down to my brother and boyfriend who designed and fitted it using [mostly] bits of stuff we had laying around the house / in the metal factory.

I also thought I would incorporate a what’s on my bathroom shelves , so you can have a nosey at the products I use on a regular basis…

So what do you think?

LIFE | a little update & finding my happy

Before mum died … seems like a life-time away, it also feels like yesterday.

Before mum died … I seemingly didn’t have a care in the world. I probably did but It just felt like I laughed constantly [especially with my mum] my world was good.

I was the girl up for anything. If you told me I couldn’t or shouldn’t do it then you can guarantee I would probably try . I’d then run back to my mum and tell her all-about it. She’d shake her head while we sat laughing uncontrollably. I loved that. I loved sharing stuff with her. She would pretend to be shocked [at some things ] but believe me my mum was a little minx, an instigator and terribly encouragable.

For example my mum found this story particularly funny … [and ‘Tracey does Kavos‘ which despite being hilarious & very, very innocent I promised I’d never talk about .My mum was worried people would get the wrong impression . If I ever write my memoirs it’ll be in there for sure…] Continue reading
