- It’s my eldest’s birthday today, a day I find insanely emotional because it marks when my world got ripped apart and slowly over the years put back together in an entirely different way. This album is playing loud in my ears as it did in those early days of parenting. Nothing like @martynjosephmusic reminding me of the love out here, calling me to be brave and be quietly drawn by the stronger call of what I really love. #phew #allthefeelings #wrestlingwiththenoiseofthisnight #soulsoothing #birthdaysAnd Joni calls me onLink in the bio to my latest blog post of processing this crazy start of our epic adventure. Here’s a taster :) - We are about to live our epilogue, staying a week in a friends annexe before we start our prologue heading off to Northern Ireland. We shall enjoy our Brighton, our friends and we shall lean into the ache to start the next book.The last Saturday morning.Spent a very happy few hours today in the company of my wonderful colleagues Dave and Sam. We ate amazing food, we put the Christian world to rights and started working on our new podcast (working titles- ‘stop being weird’ or ‘you’re just embarrassing yourselves’…) we had meandering conversations about stuff in the Bible, God and what on earth the passages Dave is preaching on this week might be about.Grateful as ever for these beauties. A last fairly straightforward meet up for a while. But we are good at moving heaven and earth to hang out and pray together so the Irish Sea isn’t going to stop us. A lovely start to what promises to be a strange couple of weeks full of lasts for now and goodbyes and ALL the feelings. #friendship #autumn #goodbyes #allthefeelings

I’ve lost count of the people over the years who ask: ‘why is she called Binface?’ I accept that she just is now. When we pray for her, we pray for Binface. Son1 doesn’t know she has another name. I … Continue reading
Thankful for… Lazy Saturday morning with Binface, asking each other the questions from the weekend section of the Guardian, chatting about ‘The God I don’t Understand’, trying to hold the questions together with trust in a God who is in … Continue reading
Thankful for… The arrival of Binface, cuddles, fish pie, trooping off to Sainsbury’s for chocolate and beer.
The utter, utter hilarity of the letting agent today. Really, are you SURE you want this dump? Really? The buzz, the fear, the joy, the insanity, the feeling of free fall as we jump. Telling all this to Binface and … Continue reading
Relief that I’m not really that mental after all. Enjoying the sunshine and exercise kick this morning. Binface, B, Brighton beach and pretty singing. The first shakeaway of the year. Nutella and malted milk biscuits. Mmmm.
