Christmas in England!

After thinking about it for weeks, we decided to visit the girls and spend Christmas in England. It was great to meet up first with Im and Cam in London and then Vez and her hubbie Mike in Bolton. No need to tell you that those 8 days flew!
We drove to Dieppe through rain and it was hard because the road seemed to be covered by a sheet of ice. Four hours later we arrived in Newhaven. Then we arrived in Haringey an hour and a half later! It was busy but not too busy if you see what I mean. We couldn’t find our hotel even though Steven put the post code in the Satnav. The manager of the hotel told us later that it was not the firt time people failed to locate his hotel because of it.

La suite au prochain numéro! lol

 

Just to let you know…

Hey there, friends, just to let you know that my blogging days are numbered…no this isn’t as serious as that!

So we moved in France in February as Steven’s dream was to retire in France and in August  I got this new teaching job in Angouleme, yes in Charente, an hour away by car from Civray, France!  I love the school, the staff and of course the kiddies…I am so blessed…

I am fairly busy with everything, preparing lessons, marking, and now as it’s the end of the term, writing reports for all my classes. It takes time and I have to create most resources because it’s the first time I’m teaching English…

I am not giving up blogging though!

So just a little organising…if you have any tips, let me know!

Have a blessed week-end!

Janathon day 4

janathon-participant-logo
Dear friends after a great day at school, I was overjoyed to spend the evening with Imo. Steven did a roast diner with all the vegetables including the roasties, Imogen’s favourite and a special vegan gravy for her. Unfortunately she didn’t like my butternut squash loaf because …it was a medley of vegetables… and not a loaf. Not to worry, practice makes perfect!

Tonight I wasn’t unsure of going out for a walk/run under the rain, still I went out and really enjoyed it!

Have a great Tuesday 🙂

From Calais to Civray

Today is the first day of our French hols. We woke up at 3:15 in Dover and crossed the Channel at 4:30 on a P&O ferry (Only 10 minutes late) Perfect conditions, pleasant people on board..Steven noticed that if you wanted WiFi you had to pay £3.OO which is strange considering the crossing costs £ 200. When I drink a latte in Costa I have free WiFi.

We stopped on the aire de la Baie de Somme but noticed that the café crème didn’t taste as nice as usual. The site is wonderful though and the ducks quacked joyfully!

As we headed towards Poitiers I couldn’t help gazing at a sky of a different beauty; as if there were finger prints..
So nous parlons français et nous avons fait une promenade en bicyclette du camping jusqu’à Civray.
Bonne nuit bénie mes amis.
PS Meet one of the goats doing freely in the campsite!

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!

When He appears!

I like Fridays and I expect you do to! If you are at work you can’t wait for the week-end. If you are not working like me I guess you have made plans too for your week-end! This week, I decided that on Friday I would spend more time doing housework! Sigh! I am not keen on housework, I admire all of you guys who do it without grumbling! I have stopped grumbling about it for some time because it is lovely to live in a tidy and clean environment. Right? So my way of dealing with it is to have lots of breaks looking for a translator job, blogging, reading my friends’ blogs and the news or…. going on youtube to listen to some uplifting and encouraging songs. This morning I have discovered Joshua Aaron’s youtube channel and I am so pleased to share it with you!

Joshua Aaron is an award winning, Messianic Jewish singer and songwriter. He and his wife Jeannie have four children (Emma, Joshie, Max and Levi) and maintain citizenship with both the nation of Israel & the United States of America. Since the release of his first live CD, “Bo Yeshua” (2009) Joshua’s music has grown to an international level, with as many as 3 millionYouTube views of his music videos. His 2012 release “You Are Holy“ won him two Independent Music Awards for his original songs, “Hoshiana” and “You Are Holy” while his latest CD release “Hu Yavo” (July, 2014) soars to new heights, continuing to powerfully connect both the church and Israel through music.

Have a blessed Friday, I must get on!

Last week-end

nativity templateI suppose that this post is a bit like an open diary and a very exciting one! Joy! Friday night I was enjoying reading more commentaries on Isaiah 40 and Mark 1, what I did on and off all week. Steven tempted me with a melted Brie served on a small nan bread, and I may have told you before that I love cheese and this was an offer hard to resist.

Saturday, we went to Stone farmer market, the last one before Christmas.  On the way, Steven pointed out at a beautiful heron crossing the road over us. It was too late for me to get a photo and moreover I didn’t have my ‘proper’ camera, only my phone. The stalls were all full of goodies, some of them I found quite dear. There was a stall where French brocante was displayed and I looked at 5 copper pans, however they were light and slightly damaged priced for 55 pounds. Nope. We then went for a drink and my coffee came with cute mince pie. After our drink, we went back to the market and they were about to go home so we managed to get purple and green kale, free-ranged eggs and mushrooms at a bargain price!

Sunday morning, as I was driving to the first church, I asked the Lord to use me to speak to everyone attending each service. After,  I was thanking the Lord that he strengthened me during the two sermons. I know that I couldn’t have done it without him. I also felt so encouraged by the  support of my vicar who has such a great sense of humour (it does help in a big way!) and so grateful to hear everyone’s comments.

Looking back I praise the Lord for an excellent week-end, as he poured grace and mercy on all our family.

May the Lord bless you and your family abundantly this week in Jesus’ name.

Final verdict

On that film..Scorched, I say not bad at all actually, very funny!
Steven says: very slow, the last 15 minutes were all right! George says hello!

Home sweet home

My internet stopped working because I’ve run out of space on my hard drive ran out! So I started to move some folders manually; and it didn’t make much difference! So I’ve had to move lots of folders and guess what, it’s going to take ages! No problem! It’s Friday evening the only day when Steven and I watch TV! We are watching Scorched, an american film about a bank robbery and so far it is pretty weird but i suppose there is potential. There is that guy who gets spit at by his pet lizard ? John Cleese just appeared! In any case just in case the film is a bore I always do something else so I’m talking to you in the cyberspace and if you think about it this is rather extraordinary.. but so addictive.. I hope you are having a blessed Friday evening!
