Dear Reader

Apologies for not posting for a bit but as ever this bee has been busy.  I’ve been doing lots of knitting trying to use up the stash but then at the weekend it got replaced……blame Yarningham for that.

I went to Yarningham as I wanted to learn drop spindle spinning.  I had a kit but had no success learning via YouTube. Plus it was my birthday a couple of weeks back so Happy Birthday me. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Well I gave it a go but unfortunately with not much success. Kate from Hill Top explained that in order to perfect something it takes around about 1000 hours……..yep I know what you are thinking.

Anyway I’ve tried a few times since the weekend and well still not getting the hang of it. I’m not sure even if I want to persevere with it. There’s a lady who spins at one of my knitting groups that I’m going to speak to…..and well we will see what happens from there.

If you want a nose at my attempt I’m the Lady in the purple top and you can see it here


Cherish 2016

The light which I carry is not my light; the song I sing is not my song. It is the light of God, the song of the Lord.


Dear reader

I’ve recently come back from Cherish. A Christian Women’s Conference organised by Life Church, Bradford.

7,000 women were there at the Leeds Arena. The theme was “Light up the Sky”. I found the whole experience uplifting and affirming, as well as meeting some fantastic beautiful ladies.

The quote above this post is a reminder for you and me to shine as a light to others to show one another the light of God.

Blessings πŸ˜€

May is here!

May is here! I would love to say that spring has definitely sprung however no one seems to have informed the weather. I know a very British thing to talk about but we’ve had snow, hail, wind and rain with very little sunshine.

Today being Bank Holiday it chucked it down. There was some bright sunshine this morning whilst the car boot was going on down at my local church. I went down to give a hand.  This afternoon just as I was about to go for a run the heavens opened.

Yep dear reader you did read right – I’m back running. …. well of sorts 😂😂😂 I’ve signed up to do a marathon in May raising money for British Heart Foundation. The idea is over the month of May you run 26 miles. I signed up to help support a friend but have quickly realised I do need to get back into my running.

This is all part of the journey that I am on this year. Health is one of my priorities this year. Along with diet this includes exercise. Running gets me outdoors, air into my lungs and burns calories.

Each mile is an achievement. So far I’ve done 3 and we are on day 2.  More will be slowly shaved off over this week. I’ll keep you posted on my progress:)

Dear Reader
One of the greatest things that hubby ever won in a raffle was a DAB Radio (2nd place is the slow cooker). Since then my radio has been tuned into UCB.

I love listening to Bob Gass in the morning.   It somehow sets me up for the day. Today’s one was of particular interest to me.  Everyone can relate to this.

Whatever you concentrate on, you give strength and momentum to. Your priorities determine how you spend your time, so set them prayerfully and maintain them carefully.
