On Baking. (But not really…)

(Disclaimer: if personal oversharing – and particularly family planning- is not what you want to read about right now, then I’d advise that this post is not for you! Thanks for stopping by x ) So, I’ve always loved cake.  Cake is joy. Cake is pure. Cake is the future. As a very little girl,…

Wrathy McWrath-Face

So it’s a while since I’ve written a ‘faith’ post, but at last, I have some beef to get off my chest. (Such a strange choice of words for a vegetarian…) See, our first month in our new home and first fortnight in our new roles have been abundantly blessed. We’ve arrived at an exciting…

Clergy WAGS: What Not To Wear!

** Apologies for the sexist title, but as the female wife of a male curate I can only write what I know. However, if any CHAB’s want to give their insight I’ll happily read and share! ** Well, our first week on the other side is well and truly underway. As we approach the weekend, however,…

The Main Event

So… Husband is ordained! Hoorah!  He wore the dress, said yes, got blessed and… Well, how on earth do I sum up the rest?! The Rest… Hmmm… Maybe a little background! See. I’m not, by any stretch of the imagination, an Anglican by tradition. I became a Christian at sixteen, after a lot of preliminary…

It’s Weird… But I Get It

So tonight is my last night as a non-Vicar’s wife.  Tucked up in bed at 9.30pm, challenging myself to write a few thoughts in half an hour (yeah right!) before the madness begins… I wonder if there’s some kind of rite of passage that I’m missing out on here? Like, should I be baking space cakes…

Not Like This…

In my previous post, (now removed after three people spoke to me and I felt Blogger’s Shame!)… I asked how on earth do we get to know the neighbours in a place like Pleasantville?! Well… Picking some toys up in the garden today, I looked up and noticed this glorious unpacking malfunction! Boris. My extremely life-like Baby…

On the Road

Well, that’s it. We are in transit. There’s been tears, tantrums and uncontrollable sobbing… but I’m sure Husband will calm down eventually! Nah. In all seriousness, this is our sixth house move in almost eight years of marriage; and it has, so far, been the easiest (practically) to date. This is largely down to: The…

Temporary Perks

As a disclaimer: this post will be pure, graphic, toilet humour. If you don’t like that- or are one of those people who purport that girls only poo rose petals and kitten fur; I suggest you stop reading now.

The Bare Liminal

A few weeks ago, I wrote a Guest Blog for my friend Alice at Me Set Free. It’s a bit of an historical one, but it really explains quite a lot; both about this old clay jar business, and about how I’m feeling right now.

Redeemed

So, the run-up to Easter has been somewhat… Messy.  Last term was hectic, to say the least; with deadlines, disappointments, events and plans; so when the end of term was finally here, we were more than ready to have the holidays at hand. Just enough time to work slowly, but unwind; though I have to say unraveling wasn’t…

Ballet Music

For Tinker’s last birthday, we bought her a new movie; The Princess and the Frog. She’d never seen it before, and so was excited when we settled down to watch it together. As the credits rolled, she asked me if I had never seen it either? I thought for a moment, and then remembered that…
