Dear husband, Tim had just left to go to a Sunday School teacher’s meeting. I had just finished reading through Leading little ones to God, an excellent wee devotional book for family worship times and then came the questions!

“Mummy, but who made God?” (B)

“Mummy, when we die, do we go straight to heaven (if we are believers) or straight to the new earth?” (B)

“But where is heaven?”

“Where is hell?”

“What is heaven like?” “What is hell like?”

“Will there be any food in heaven?”( a very concerned J)

“Will I be able to have babies in heaven?” (a very concerned B)

“How come God is three persons? Doesn’t that mean that there are three God’s?”
Trying my utmost to explain the trinity, J piped Oh isn’t that like a trident, Mummy?

Then Does God have a trident?! (J again) (J had been reading his school book which contained the word ‘trident’)

There will be a few theological discussions going on later when Daddy comes home I’m sure!

Tim just came home from a hospital appointment to get his knee checked…..

and has informed me of a very unfortunate event!

A car was parked extremely close to T’s little fiesta in fact he was sandwiched between two cars… poor T couldn’t get in….and the hospital obviously didn’t have a tannoy system…

So….Tim goes back into the hospital and has a fried breakfast (!) whilst waiting to see if the culprit had removed his car!

20 mins later…. still no joy….

Tim decides to open the boot ( a hatchback, thankfully) ….and climb in through, Indiana Jones style; two big legs dangling out the back of the car style; and eventually sprachels back to the driver seat…..

…. hehehehe (the very thought of it has made my day!) 


(P.S. I am using this opportunity to experiment with my new-found wordpress freedom!! I have figured out what I was doing wrong at long last!)


Yep. It really works. Just turn the volume up full and start mopping!:) :)

Socks are a good gift because I know I’ll use them. There’s nothing pretty or interesting about socks (or not once you get too old to wear Spiderman socks at any rate) but there’s no doubt that they’re usable. Plus, putting on new socks is one of life’s most underrated and overlooked pleasures.

If this doesn’t put a smile on your face I don’t know what will!?!
