40 weeks plus four days... it's a strange thing to know you could go into labour at any moment. This week I'm treading the fine line between being sensible and not doing too much or going too far afield, whilst... Continue reading

I've always been drawn to dystopian stories. Be it in books, films or something else, the idea of reflecting the flaws or future pitfalls of today's society in an exagerated future context has always interested, intrigued, challenged and frightened me.... Continue reading

I will never fully understand the innovative / comedy mind of my husband. There is an aspect of the surreal and absurd that tickles him and often takes me by surprise. I love it. He, Tom and Jim were set... Continue reading

Feeling a little exposed this morning... I decided to share something of our personal journey in the last few years on today's LOVE:EASTER podcast from 24-7 Prayer. The passage we're looking at is John 11, the death and raising of... Continue reading

The 12th February makes me nostalgic. Eight years ago today I took the rather scary decision to change my relationship status. At a little 24-7 Prayer gathering called IAM5 Sven Hardini and I went from being friends who made chess... Continue reading

I died of embarrassment when my church leader was the first to spot this autocorrect fail this morning. I have a sneaking suspicion though that this has been one of my most reacted to tweets. What should I learn from... Continue reading

Yesterday was a pretty typical day in the 24-7 Prayer hub in Guildford. Brian Heasley was dressed up like a Christmas tree, Rebecca Swarbrick has posed like a super hero, Sheena has sung, Theresa has inflated balloons and I drew... Continue reading

After two and a half years of trying for a baby, every step of my pregnancy feels like a little miracle. I've never been more thankful. Just ten months ago I was struggling with a deep sadness and fear that... Continue reading

I've been hoping for a reason to visit Hong Kong for many years and today that reason has arrived. I'm typing this from Heathrow Terminal 3 waiting to make my way into the air to touch down in a new... Continue reading

How do I describe the last five days spent with hundreds of friends in Frankfurt, Germany? It seems too much to condense into one post, but I'm going to give it a go. 'Aufstehen', the eurogathering of the 24-7 Prayer... Continue reading

I type this sitting in Heathrow terminal 5 dipping tea and thanking God for the peace and dignity of flying British Airways. Today Steve and I fly to Frankfurt, Germany to meet up with some of my favourite people in... Continue reading

Thursday night Steve and I put our glad rags on and made our way to BAFTA's headquarters in London. In these rather plush and prestigious surroundings we were gathering with some of the 24-7 Prayer team and other hopeful nominees... Continue reading

Oooo I love both of those... :)
