So I’m currently investigating the wonderful world of clergy wear as my ordination approaches. I’m talking Albs, Stoles, Cassocks, Scarfs, shirts, bib-stocks and surplices. Crazy talk I know. The last time I spent more than £100 on an outfit for a big church ceremony was in 2007 when I was preparing for my wedding […]Read More My best man
this week I’ve been thinking a lot about friends. It’s come up a few times when I’ve prayed and then again in church yesterday.

I’m not sure if that’s why, but after the summer holidays, it suddenly seems to be almost November before I’ve realised I need to organise […]Read More Surprise!
Are you any good at admitting when you are wrong? I’ve had to apologise to people at work recently as I lost my temper. I have also had a stormy relationship with work colleagues in several different jobs, and it really doesn’t help me or the other people in the team but it’s alot easier […]Read More Bed rest
