Another Saturday

image

Cheers! Steven and I are having a drink in the Sun Inn and I thought I’d have half a cider, the least alcoholic and it happens to be a perry! Very nice!

We took some books to a charity shop ( it’s hard for me to get rid of books however it was a slow decision) and clothes and the Christmas tree. Then we used a voucher to buy two 5 litres interior paint in our local homebase which happens to be closing down. We were contemplating buying a steamer to take wall papers down in our French house but in the end we didn’t.
We haven’t been here together for a long time. When Imogen stayed with us last week we popped in on Tuesday after school!

I was very upset to read about the explosion in a hotel in Ouagadougou. Will you join me in  prayers. Our Father in heaven, we ask you to comfort the victims and their families,surround them with your love and draw them closer to you. We ask you in the name of our Saviour and redeemer Jesus-Christ. Amen
Hope you are having a great Saturday.

In our new garden…

There are lots of different flowers

And two plum trees to be precise the Mirabelles de Nancy that Steven picked for our party tomorrow. My cousines are visiting us all the way from Bordeaux.

So we are holidaying in Civray in a beautiful campsite at the edge of the town which explains the presence of this herd of cows.
The owners are welcoming and friendly.
This morning I continued reading the Gospel of Mark from ch6 to ch 9. Our Saviour is so understanding and patient with the disciples taking time to explain the paraboles to them (and us) i.e. Mark 7:18 ,Jesus full of compassion and love healed lots of  people, Mark 6:56. One of my favourite passages is when Peter says: you are the Messiah..Mark 8:29 When Jesus tells his disciples that He will suffer a lot, be rejected,put to death and resurrect 3 days later, Peter objected. The idea of the suffering servant was not something the disciples anticipated. Imagine their amazement at what was happening, Jesus forgiving sins,  telling off the Pharisees, calling them hypocrites, feeding the 4000 and then the 5000 with only a few pieces of bread and fish, delivering people from evil spirits..mind blowing stuff and the journey keeps on!
Have a lovely, peaceful and blessed weekend!

In Bolton

We left Hixon at 1030 and as traffic was not too bad we arrived at Bolton at midday. Before we left my lovely neighbour agreed to feed our 2 rabbits as we will probably be back past their bed time!
Verity has booked diner in a restaurant, the Rivington pub and grill outside Bolton for 6 30 pm. It will be lovely to see again Verity and her fiancé David. Have a beautiful day!

Happy mother’s day

Hope you are all having a fantastic day.

At 9:30 I went to church in our village for a well-attended service led by Nicola. Maureen was on the organ and we sang a few songs including the following one: He has the whole world in his hands, I’m humming it now. After the service, we all gathered for a chat and the enormous apple cake that my friend Lilly baked disappeared very quickly!

This was the Gospel of today’s service.

Jesus said, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgement, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God.”

JOHN 3:14-21

After church, my hubby prepared a lovely Mother’s day diner for both of us, some smoked salmon and pasta. This morning our girls wished me Happy Mother’s day and I feel much blessed, praising the Lord for his goodness.

At 6pm, my friend Lilly is meeting me at home and we’ll walk to the Bank House for a ‘Mothering Songs of praise’ that starts at 7pm. So if you are near Hixon, Weston, Sandon, Salt, Stowe by Chartley or Gaeton and Fradswell, do come. It will be fun!

First day out!

I hope that you have had a peaceful and blessed Christmas. Today Steve and I are chilling in Lichfield.
Yesterday we had a ‘ board meeting’ to talk about what we were going to do the next two weeks and decided that today we would go to Stafford. Imogen would go to the emergency dentist at 2 provided that she managed to have an appointment. While Steven was topping up his veg in Tesco, Imogen and I would browse the sales..only the 70%..
Nothing happened as planned. First we got up at 9 then I rang the dentist at 9:10 and was told that all the emergency appointments had gone. I thought it was best to let Imogen sleep a bit more and I put on the coffee. Looking after the two rabbits took a little longer than I thought because I couldn’t catch Mima Leah! She is so shy!
After our bible readings Steve mentioned that we would go to Lichfield: “There is a guitar shop there so I might as well have them repaired mine.It’s more convenient than going to Bolton!” I agreed and by then it was 12 so I woke Imogen up.”My tooth is not hurting as much. Praise the Lord! ” Just as well because we didn’t have the appointment. “I’m not going to Lichfield. I fancy the rest of my curry for breakfast!”
So we’ve left the guitar in the good hands of Steve and now we are enjoying a brunch.
What are you up to today? Have a wonderful day!

Chocolate cookies

Tonight I thought I’d try to bake dark chocolate nutty cookies! I found a recipe that Imogen wrote ages ago and I left it in the chocolate drawer for the special day.! Here they are! Steven and I just shared one and without boasting I’d say it was delicious!

A super week-end in photos

This is my friend Di and I at the Green Man in Hixon and Imogen is taking the photo! The second photo is in a restaurant called Pasta di piazza in Stone. We went there on Sunday for a celebration meal, Steven is in the fourth photo. The third photo shows Mollie and Imogen in the Green Man this same evening as in the first photo! The photo of the bonfire was taken at our friends Nicolas and Dennis in Chartley Manor where we had a great time! 🙂

Last day of our hols..

The last day of our hols in Norfolk where we’ve had a relaxing time. Tonight the chef prepared wonderful diner number 5: mussels and king prawns; we bought them at Brancaster on the way back from Wells-on-Sea. After diner I read half of the chapter Being for Blessing 1
I find it extraordinary to discover some of the powerful writings of Julian of Norwich. She talks about the Lord ‘in his love he clothes us, enfolds and embraces us; that tender love completely surrounds us never to leave us. As I saw it he is everything that is good. Reading about the love of our Lord for us his beloved creatures always makes me emotional..and fills me with joy! Have a blessed evening!
