life :: festive

It’s that time of  year. I have been feeling it for a while now, perhaps more than any other year, and since the 1st December has well and truly passed, it is now socially-acceptable to sing ” IT’S CHRISTMAS” in the streets (debatable, but I’d be singing with you… There is something about festivities that […]

travel :: lakes

Two weeks ago, I went on a little day trip to the Lake District with a friend. We town-hopped till we dropped, and I loved every minute of it. There is nothing like driving from Lake Windermere, through Ambleside to Keswick. The scenery is incredible. The hills are rolling, and the weather was so moody that […]

fashion :: chaotic

While the cold breeze whistles its way through the crunchy Autumn leaves, my scarf whips up, flying in the air, only to nestle softly in a shallow puddle of murky rainwater. It is this kind of chaos I am experiencing of late – no matter my outfit choice, it is always blown away, quite literally, […]

faith :: in reverse

While holed up in Lancaster’s public library, for the first time in fact, I watched a video of Steven Furtick preaching on worry. This guy, I mean, he’s just the one you need to get you through a bad day. Sometimes it’s as if God speaks right to me through his words, in a deep […]

Wow, it feels like forever since I have contributed some words. But here I am, returned in force to hit you with some Monday mid-afternoon thoughts. Despite it being my favourite time of year this (past) week: Halloween and Bonfire Night, I’ve been lacking inspiration like never before. Having been ill with flu what what […]

life :: unplanned

Vagabond – a person who wanders from place to place […] The unexpected things are the best right? That surprise holiday, that surprise family visit, that surprise best-friend-on-the-doorstep, even that “shall we go to the pub?” question. We waste so much energy on planning. You get yourself all busy up in your diary, jotting down […]

faith :: expectant

I have always had this hope. Hope in my life, hope in what is to come. It helps me to feel anchored, and aligned. This Sunday, I’m heading to CityChurch Lancaster for the first time. I’m excited to see what it’s like, as I’ve been meaning to go for years – except obviously I couldn’t […]

faith :: courageous

While I’m holed up in bed with a migraine that’s making me nauseous (sorry for the image of me vomiting), I thought why not put some words into a post. I’m finding a lot of courage of late. It took a lot for me to deal with something that could have easily broken me just […]
