Minis

How many monks can you fit in a Mini?

Today started relatively early, with a Men’s Prayer Breakfast at church. Getting up wasn’t the problem – delaying breakfast was though! We had a good discussion though, about our direction as a church and what we were actively doing in our community. Some bits were quite challenging, as I guess Read more…

Gimme metal!

I had a rather large delivery yesterday, and it was very exciting! I had been waiting all week for it, and on Wednesday lunchtime a large UPS van drew up outside. I waited at the window, waiting to see what would come out. For quite some time, nothing appeared to Read more…

One-car household

I’ve finally sold my Fiesta! Hooray!! And what a liberating feeling it was, seeing someone else drive it away. It’s not that it was a bad car, by all accounts it did me very well. It was reliable, it was fairly economic, it was comfortable, easy to drive, handled motorway Read more…

Filling in the gaps

Ok, so I’ve got this new blog set up and I’m pretty much happy with it for now. I’ve made a link to my old XBlog, which I shall probably tinker with tomorrow and make sure people can access the history on that too (never did get round to doing Read more…
