You couldn’t make it up…………..

You couldn’t make it up…………..

……..and THAT is why I believe that Jesus was who he said he was. I’ve worked in sales for nearly all of my working life. I’ve designed strategies, helped to create and refine brands, pitched ideas, solutions and products to countless audiences, and made the…

A very precious and special ‘Head Girl’

I always knew when it was Friday……….because little Michelle, the precious child of God who lives with us, would cry bitterly. Somewhere in the mind damaged by Cerebral Palsy she knew that it was physiotherapy day – and that her twisted little body would be…

Overworked……………and not paid at all!

Overworked……………and not paid at all!

I am, of course, the only person on the building site of the ‘Hospital in the Hills’ that is not paid. In fact I’m paying to be here. And I’m paying everyone else to be here. So why haven’t I got a smart J10:10 T-shirt…
