I thoroughly recommend this book. For people such as myself, trying to find a way through the puzzle of life, death and faith, this book is a huge help and a fascinating read.

The story that Harris tells of Lourdes will do much to deepen our faith and understanding of why we are drawn back time and time again to this miracle.

This was a fun News to produce as the village becomes closer and there is much to write about.

Nunnington News May 20

We took a slightly lighthearted view of the pandemic on the front page of this edition, feeling our readers needed a bit of a lift!

Assignments submitted!

Thank heavens for lockdown! Without a much simplified life and far fewer distractions I am not sure I would have completed these on time.

Nunnington News April 20

The newsletter came into its own this month. We were able to include updates on the Corona virus and provide details of all those willing to help.

Getting to the start line

Each year as the Great North Run gets larger and larger and I get older and older, getting to the start line on time, and in a fit enough state to run becomes more of a challenge. This is my video of how i did it in 2019.  

Nunnington News March 20

Our first newsletter! Also an exercise in transferable skills, using techniques learnt whilst creating brochures and booklets for my business.

Walking to the end of the year

Ending the year with gratitude for our wonderful Yorkshire landscape and great walking company

A Secret Wish

Grateful to have rediscovered the excellent German group Propaganda from the ’80s. Still timeless, great music.

New year sunset

This evening’s beautiful sunset, and it promise of sunshine to come.

With gratitude for gratitude

Feeling humbled that my Gratitude Journal reflections made such a difference to someone else.

Longer days

Today is the Winter Solstice, and a time to be grateful as the nights now grow shorter and the days get longer.

The middle of the road

I am grateful for the lesson I learnt during my run this morning, which was in essence all about being counter-intuitive.

Cats at home

Have you ever noticed how easily cats make themselves at home, finding the sun and the warmth, just lounging around and suffering (or eating)?

Hello, wall!

Don’t you get so irritated with walls and crash barriers that leap out at you in the dark to damage your car? With gratitude to those who resolve these incidents with generosity and compassion.

Victorian clock maker

In early 2019, Clang and I watched the BBC’s The Victorian House of Arts and Crafts. I am very grateful to the BBC for producing this excellent programme, which caused quite an upheaval in our lives and precipitated unexpected consequences.

Fab flowers, special occasion

C and I are both very grateful to friends in our village who asked Lush & Lang to provide the flower arrangements for their son’s wedding.

Edinburgh

A short trip to Edinburgh threw up much to be grateful for. Our train was on time! Yeah. Our hotel was excellent! It only rained a little bit. We found lots of old friends.

A dash of colour

Its autumn and as the cold and dark of winter approaches, I was rather grateful for this dash of colour in the kitchen, thanks in the main to C’s home grown tomatoes.

London friends and foxes

Much to be grateful for as we return from a weekend in London, especially reuniting with old friends from a distant past and finding them still fun, healthy and energetic

Teapots

You need a bit of colour in what sometimes seems to be a rather colourless world.

Great North Run 2019

It’s always an honour and a privilege to be part of the field at the Great North Run, as I was on Sunday.

Welcome!

My family motto is Facta Non Verba (Deeds Not Words), a textbook Victorian pun on our family name!

I like to live up to my motto. However, I am also moved, from time to time, to reflect and to write.

Some of my words are posted here. Enjoy and feel free to comment.
