Mandala Hoops

I’ve been putting together a baby nursery for number three due within the month. I’ve been exploring Instagram late at night (the ‘ol sore hips and reflux have got me up at all hours) and I came across these beautiful wall hangings called ‘mandalas’. Now I’ve never heard of them before….

Psalm 55:22 Wallpapers

“Give your burdens to the LORD and HE will take care of you” – Psalm 55:22. I feel there is a real emphasis on the word ‘will’ in this verse. Sometimes we can pray to God and not fully comprehend that He WILL take care of us. He loves us…

Mmmm Minestrone

Fragrant and hearty minestrone soup for a cold winter’s day. Minestrone is one of my favourite soups that everyone enjoys. It gets so many vegetables into my daughters and to mix it up a little for their entertainment I sometimes use dinosaur pasta instead of macaroni. I also prefer a…

September 2015 Wallpapers

I can’t believe it’s September already. As soon as you hit the “ember” months all of a sudden it’s Christmas. I’m being conscious to slow things down before they get really crazy. That book I mentioned last month, “The Best Yes” by Lysa Terkhurst has been really thought provoking and I…
