I had a birthday recently – not a particularly significant one but it’s been well celebrated and I’ve appreciated the warm wishes coming from friends and family that we’ve connected with over the years. I have a facebook policy where I don’t tend to post birthday greetings on other folks’ walls because I’d only miss … Read moreA Discipline Disaster
This is the aftermath of one such occasion on the birthday of one Mr. Hamilton… 🙂

On the other hand, … Read moreStudiously avoiding study

It’s the tenth AS, and for the first nine the band that has become Soul Purpose led worship. Last year … Read moreI love Autumn Soul

I did Latin GCSE and this is taught in a similar way. All seemed well. Until I realised I was back to learning Vocab!!! Thankfully, as you can see … Read moreAargh! Greek!
