Out of the office (again)!

I am off to Nottingham tomorrow morning to help out with their university mission!
I doubt I will get near a computer during the week, so adios amigos, well until next Sunday. I hope to have lots of stories to tell when I get back. Please pray that we would have a great week proclaiming Jesus as Lord and the gospel as truth! Please also if you can please pray that I would be bold and confident in telling people about Jesus and also please pray for energy. I am not starting the week very well with no sleep last night due to a trip to A+E with my sister and her boyfriend. God will see me through with all His energy!

Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not


The Arctic Monkeys debut album is absolutely brilliant! I cannot stop listening to it. Every single track has lyrics and a tune that will stick in your head. The two songs that they have been released 'I bet you look on the dancefloor' and 'When the Sun goes down' are fantastic tunes and have both deserved their Number 1 status. My favourite off the album has been played a couple of times on Radio 1- it's called 'Mardy Bum'. . Some of the lyrics in 'Mardy Bum are:

"Well now then Mardy Bum,Oh I'm in trouble again, aren't I?
I thought as much, Cause you turned over there
Pulling that silent disappointment face,
The one that I can't bear"

I just love the honesty of their lyrics, which all adds to their unique, fantastic style.
I hope they continue to produce brilliant music! I;m sure they'll be around for a long while!

Relay 2 piccies!

Here is installment one of my contribution to your memories of Relay 2 if you were there. If not then just enjoy everyone looking a bit silly!
Surprising us all Sam climbs the walls- literally!
The victors of the competition- congratulations Scotland!
Toria looks bemused about being surrounded by Northern Monkeys!
Our brave leader giving it his all to kick off the night!
North East team ready for bed early in the competition- looking good Paula (that dressing gown looks familiar)
Looking smooth boys!

Harry Hill- what a legend!!


I have just got back from watching 'Harry Hill's TV burp' being recorded. Now if you have not watched this show, then I highly recommend that you stay in at around 5:15 on Saturday evening for a right giggle!!

It was a lot of fun. Not only did I get to see Harry Hill but I also got to spend some time with my lovely Dad and little sister Amy. It was so much fun and I really needed a good laugh so it was just what the doctor ordered!

The whole show was very professional and I was very impressed by how smoothly it all went! I'll be watching on Saturday just to listen if you can hear my laugh at all! Probably not but worth a shot! The closest I'll ever get to being on tv.

Out of the Office for a week

Just to say that I am not going to be blogging for the next 6 days, as I am going to Relay 2. This is our second training week for all the Relay workers across the country. I cannot wait to see and catch up with some good friends and be able to encourage one another, pray for each other and study the Bible together, as well as have loads of fun- particuarly looking forward to the Karaoke choices of each region!!

I'm sure there will be lots to tell when I return.

Babies are so cute!

The last couple of days have been baby central for me! Yesterday after our London prayer meeting, I went to visit a good friend of mine in North London who is about 3 weeks away from having her first baby. It was great to see her and catch up. The best bit about seeing her, was for the first time in my life, after Gwyn had pointed out to me, I was able to feel the head, foot and hand of the baby when touching Gwyn's stomach!!

HOW AMAZING IS THAT? It just made me think about how awesome God's creation is and that He knitted that baby together in her womb! It blows my mind!

And today I went to the 30th birthday party of my old youth worker and him and his wife have a 3 month old baby. I just love seeing how parents interact with their kids and love them so much! It's brilliant! But I have to say that after a weekend of 'babyness' I am feeling quite broody! Not a good thing considering I'm not married or even attached!!But at least I can cuddle them, but if they start crying I can just give them back!!
One last thing- I learnt something today which I didn't realise happened but now I think about it it does make sense- is that babies wee in the womb!! It might just be me being stupid and not realising this, but that means that they must be surrounded by their own wee?! Any medical students or clever people care to expand on this phenomenon, it would be appreciated! Sorry to bore you with baby stuff but I'm a girl, give me a break!!
