The Timeline…

"Are we there yet?" You know that season when the children are way too small to understand time and distance, yet big enough to ask the question of whether or not we are there yet... over and over and over? It's a standard adult/parent joke because it is such a constant across cultures and countries.... Continue Reading →


Redeeming Rhythms

One of the very first steps to our second half is all about "redeeming our rhythms". Most people look at me blankly when I tell them this and you're going to hear about them a lot, so maybe I should explain... Redemption: The action of regaining or gaining possession. Or, the action of saving or... Continue Reading →

Follow the Journey!

So many of those around the world have asked me how they can follow our journey into the next phase of life. They want to know what's happening with the Kombi camper van, where we're going next, and how this is all going to play out. But the next question they keep asking is "Why... Continue Reading →

Winding Down Well!

Written a couple of weeks ago in Orlando Florida: I hate goodbyes. The real ones anyway. And June has become for us the beginning of our second half. I think I expected the last official day of work to be the beginning, but as we are needed for other things less and less, as some... Continue Reading →

Are we stupid, blind, crazy? Am I missing... Continue Reading →

Our Big News!!!

It's been too long since I've written, but it's also been a bit hard. As many of you will know, I'm good at keeping a secret, but I'm not good at making something up to cover it. I'd rather say nothing than get all tied up in knots! So here is what has been happening... Continue Reading →

Family Secrets!

I stumbled on this photo today. Well, not quite in this condition, of course, I had to hide the identities of all of them even though I would LOVE to put this picture on a billboard somewhere in all its clarity and colour! That's the thing about Christmas and New Year, even long before social media or... Continue Reading →

Wrap Up for 2017!

Well, in theory, it's 2 days till Christmas, .....but we can't wait that long (and life of course, is complicated!) for our family, this year, today is Christmas Eve (very convenient for a Saturday), tomorrow is Christmas Day, and both Monday & Tuesday are Boxing Days 🙂 I'll try and keep this short, as...
