Wednesday is for sitting in the sun

Wednesday is for sitting in the sun

To start with, I am breaking the cardinal rule of having Fridays off because this Friday I have to go to a load of course and exam board meetings for the open learning tutoring I do.  On the plus side there, though, I’ve just agreed to be the tutors’ rep: though no one is quite … Continue reading

This evoked a laugh last week

Someone came through to my blog site this last week by googling ‘drivenness’.  Somewhat surprised that my site figures on such a search, I googled the same term to see how many pages down the google search you’d have to go before you found me. Do you think I should be concerned that The Art … Continue reading

Experiment updates

I had been meaning to blog for a while about my experiment in learning Colossians.  I just never got round to it really. I suppose it’s because the last few weeks have been fairly intense as I’ve engaged in the Other Experiment.  The one where I try to start believing God’s Word about my drivenness. … Continue reading


I love how God’s timing works sometimes…  Preaching at college recently turned out to be a great chance to practise speaking to congregations other than my local church, something I am going to be doing more of as a result of a new opportunity which has come my way. I have agreed to be part … Continue reading

A new title for the CV

You may have wondered why the post on Friday about that book which I really didn’t like!  Well, I have just found a way to get free books.  In fact, I spent about an hour last weekend scouring the internet for publishers who would happily send books to me in return for a review.  After … Continue reading

Torrents of text

I haven’t written a proper blog post for several weeks now.  (The last two definitely don’t count!)  And I have really missed writing. I was determined not to write over Christmas because I wanted to do my best to take a week off from all of my various part-time activities.  I pretty much succeeded and … Continue reading

Time off!

Just over a week ago, I listed what had to be done in the three weeks following.  Since I was – and am! – planning to have time off between Christmas and New Year, I’ve recognised that everything else will have to go quiet for a couple of weeks.  That includes my blog! But as … Continue reading

Writing with a pen

In what is more of a news and updates kind of post (for which, read, ‘I have nothing intelligent to say this week’), I have been having fun writing with my digital pen. It’s one of those totally amazing inventions – albeit in the eyes of only a very small percentage of the population!  If … Continue reading

The book problem

I’ve posted about this before.  In fact, there is a series of posts from me on the subject because I have this problem with books.  It’s a bit like a child who overloads their plate with food at a party.  They promptly take a bite from every item before feeling overfaced by the quantity of … Continue reading

Getting ‘interviewed’

This blogging awards business has been fun so far.  Someone actually wanted to ‘interview’ me about being a finalist.  That really makes me laugh! Anyway, in case you are even vaguely interested in what I said, click here to go through to the Big Bible website.  And while you’re there, make sure you check out … Continue reading
