I remember a two room flat above a book shop, and the ding of the bell day in day out. I remember eating pasta every day for 6 months, the taste of it heavy in our mouths by the end.... Continue reading

Hay-on-Wye has lovely vintage stores. As does Brighton. Check them out some time when you have some spare time to drive a distance!

I was just leading at a summer camp for a week that has no signal/internet/connection to the outside world. It was bliss. I'd been really burdened before going about how lacking in substance facebook is, about how some people who call theirselves 'friends' don't communicate with you aside from facebook, and how i could be a better friend to those that I believe are. Needless to say. I'm limiting my facebook interactions even more. And really trying to have real life interactions with people who I call 'friend'. No facebook/connection/signal is good for the soul, Mama :)
