Do not judge and you will not be judged.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
Give and it will be given to you.

A surprise bbq

Wow! This morning we woke up and the sun was shining! Steven went shopping in Stone, Imogen was in her pjs watching some tv and I endeavoured to do some housework, i.e. cleaning the car! Tedious job but it's got to be done. I must say, I would rather indulge in my various hobbies than hoover! 1)
My sister Pauline sent me a text with a heart inside which there was this message : best mum! It made me laugh. I forwarded it to a few friends and Annette who lives in the Isle of Man rang me. I hadn't talked to her since Christmas (another proof that time flies!) and it was lovely to catch up. Her daughter Helen who is Camille's friend is waiting to have an operation on her leg and she is constantly in pain. The op should be on the 16th of June! A long time!
Steven came back with a piece of lamb ideal for a bbq, said he. By then the sun was hiding, clouds were up so I did mention that it was pretty cold out there but he dismissed my comment! At about 5pm, he was lighting it and an hour later, we were eating. We had garlic bread, orange peppers, onions and home-made coleslaw, full of garlic and onion! It was absolutely délicieux as they say in Molière's country. Imogen who is a vegetarian had some tomato and basil soup that I bought last week. I must confess that I am not skilled at doing soups maybe because they never taste quite right!
One of the photos show the lovely daffodils in our neighbour's garden. We are separated from them by one of those protected hedges. It needs special attention from both Steven and Phil. The birds love it!
Imogen and I we are still waiting for a desert but the chef says he is missing a special ingredient so we may have to wait for tomorrow.
1) Laziness brings on deep sleep, and the shiftless man goes hungry.
Oups, must go, desert is on the menu!

About Me

My photo

I was born in France and brought up as a catholic. After the traumatic divorce of my parents, I moved to England and became a lost sheep. However I was convinced that I was 'a good person' until I fell in a muddy pit in July 2005 after taking decisions without seeking God's Word for guidance.  I cried out to the Lord and He heard me. I was rescued and redeemed by Jesus-Christ my saviour. He has turned my life around. 
I live blissfully with my husband Steven,  a c.o.e. vicar, near Stafford (UK). We are the proud parents of three loving daughters, I am also a step-mum, I have an amazing family including a step mum, two brothers and two sister and a dear sister-in-law and her children and grand-children, lots of cousins and eleven nephews and nieces. We live near Stafford in the UK.
