Holiday – Day 2


We've had a very nice, quiet day today. The furthest we travelled was down to Seahouses, which is only about 2 miles down the road, and we spent much of the day just enjoying the peace, the quiet and the sunshine. Here's a selection of photos from the ones I took down at the harbour …

Holiday – Day 1


Phew! Made it.... We're on holiday at last. It has been a long two years since we were able to come away in our caravan, and I've been looking forward to today with a mixture of excitement and dread. Excitement because I am in my favourite place, Northumberland, but a bit of dread because a …

Naughty, But Funny


I saw this and laughed, but then reassessed my reaction and decided it was funny after all. Hope you see the funny side too! https://static.boredpanda.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/christian-memes-7-5cbf0e02cae11__700.jpg Love and laughs, Pamster x

And The Thunder Rolls


There's something about thunder that brings out some sort of primal fear in me. My rational brain knows what it is, and that it is not going to kill me or that the end of the world isn't happening and all of that, but there is something unknown about thunder that short-circuits all rationality and …

Pearl – 30


Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.1 Corinthians …

Monday Musings


Today is Monday. Traditionally the worst day of the week as it is the furthest from the weekend, especially for those who work 9-5 during the week. But now that my working life is as different now as it could have been from 10 years ago, Mondays are actually more like my Wednesdays now because …

I like this quote from the book of Proverbs bit it doesn't give the whole picture. Yes, there are days when our strength is small, when anxieties and fears overrule us. But we never have to face those days alone because we have God holding us and it is by HIS strength that we live. …

Quiet Day


I've had a bit of a quiet day today, which to be honest dear reader, has been most welcome. I don't know if you know already but I live with fibromyalgia, which is a condition that affects the body's ability to process the signals and sensations it receives. Most of the time I just get …
