For some time now i have been thinking of starting a new blog. Yes even though i have struggled to keep this one going, so don't laugh. But anyway, i have took the plunge and wrote my first post last night. It will be a christian blog journaling all that has been going on in my life over the last couple of years.
It is not a devotional. I do not intend putting prayers, thoughts of the day, poems etc. into it. It will be as the title suggests my 'learnings and yearnings' as they happen and have been happening. My walk with the Lord as i try to make sense out of what he is doing in these extraordinary times we find ourselves in.
So now all i have to do is try to do the links right, it is such a long time since i did it not sure if i remember how.
Well this is my first blog since February. Where have I been? Facebook. I notice a lot of other people haven't blogged for a while as well.
What have i been up to? Well, in June hubby was 60 so i took him to Rye for the week. On his actual b'day we went to a Steam train railway at Tenterden Kent. We stayed in a lovely B&B we had stayed in last August and the weather was fine.
On 2 separate weekends i went with daughter and g'son to Nottingham to an ice hockey school, where we just sat around the Ice Arena (where Torvil and Dean used to train) while he enjoyed himself with 2 whole days of ice time. Unfortunately after the new term started he decided he wanted to be a goalie and as they had no other, and he has great potential to be very good so they say, he was accepted. This is a whole different kind of training and kit. So we have had to get him all new kit at a price i am not even going to begin to tell you, but i think a mortgage would have been cheaper.
Summer holidays found us in North Somerset in a wonderful cottage near Burnham on Sea. There is so much to do in the area that we are thinking of going back next year to finish the area off.
Our winter week's hols is coming up soon but as we are all spent up not sure if we are going anywhere. Maybe a few days back to Rye. We like it there and it is not too long a drive for a few days.
The day after Boxing Day sees our 40th Wedding Anniversary, Ruby. Where has the time gone. Now you know why this is called 'Stop The Clock'. The beginning of January also sees me being made redundant from my job, so a new chapter begins.
Well that's my year in a few sentences. I am hoping to blog more frequently and wean myself off of my dependence on Face Book, although i would never give it up forever.
I am a wife of 42 years. A mother of 2 children of 40 and 41. My baby is a girl and my eldest a boy.
I have 7 grand'kids ranging from age 22 to 12 and 2 great g'kid. That's way too many for a women of my age.
I have been a christian for about 27 years.
