FairyTee Goes Wild

You may or may not have noticed the little bit of change that has gone on.

Recently I said 'See you soon' to Verity, who has headed to Uganda for a year to do DTS with a lovely bunch of people called YWAM. She's gone, but definitely not forgotten...and has to blog about her experience, or I shall have to go to Africa to find out what she is doing!

So her blog is here and if you know her, would you kindly support her, by reading all about what she is doing and going through the highs and lows with her.

She is a wonderful lady and she's doing it all for God, who else!?!

All well and good....

Once again, Yahoo! are reporting things again and getting it ever so slightly wrong...

Winslet flees fire at Sir Richard Branson’s house | Movies Blog - Yahoo! Movies

Of course a huge house fire like this is not good for anyone, but if you are going to talk about a huge start like Kate Winslet... at least get her movies right!!

Finding Neverland was an awesome movie and Finding netherland doesn't even exist!

Hypnotic Folding Furniture

Hypnotic Folding Furniture - Lovely Listing - Odd Finds in Real Estate Listings

This is really worth watching, some awesome design features. I really wish I had known about this when I was redesigning my bedroom. Then i would have space to play on the wii and have a double bed!!

I do love a good story... and this will be one that this couple will tell their children and their grandchildren for such a long time.

Surprise: Bride didn’t know she was getting married — until she showed up at her wedding - Yahoo! Shine Canada

It took a year of planning and a lot of quiet moments from friends and family I can imagine.

Everyone was in on it... can you believe it. I don't think my friends would be able to keep a secret like this. I certainly wouldn't be able to!

Some awesome art

I know artists have used pin point for a number of years.... but push pins is something new to me!

I am now in recovery from Soul Survivor and my cousins wedding. I have had an awesome time with lots of young people and leaders. As well as an amazing time with my family.

Once I have put the photo's on my laptop I shall put them on here. Considering I am on holiday this week, I should have already done it really!!

Dude Craft: Gulp! - Worlds Largest Stop Motion Film by Aardman Animation

Dude Craft: Gulp! - Worlds Largest Stop Motion Film by Aardman Animation

From my small world of blogging comes a large animation of awesomeness!

Dude Craft in its own right is awesome... the place I go to for a little bit of rest and imagination using, also to look at things that I could only wish of owning.

All this wonderful things will keep appearing in my life until such a time as not having the internet or forgetting about it.

Today the weather is horrible, I should've finished my talk for Sunday and there might be football on later... yesterday the weather was lovely, I took a day off from my talk and watched an early evening thunderstorm.

I'm hoping that time at Soul Survivor will be refreshing next week, that I will get an opportunity for a tweetup and a chance to be fed.

Photos of Dogs

Heart Touching Photos of Dogs with Humans

Some cute pictures celebrating dogs and the relationship we have with them.

Apparently we have cats.... not entirely sure if Mum and Dad have agreed to this... I haven't and I'm not sure our dog is very happy with it either... still they are up in my brothers room, probably causing havoc.

I am trying to write a 5 to 10 min talk for Sunday and look for an appropriate craft activity too. I'm thinking about bandages and sinners... I think I have something that will work, but I'm not entirely sure that it will occupy the young people (there were 4 or 5 in church on Sunday) for a while. Still I will find something for them to do. Might steal some Schools work ideas.

We're barely a week away from Soul Survivor, Verity is on training this week for her African adventure and my other volunteers have been giving me lots of opinion on how Shaken Up should work in September, some very exciting ideas, hopefully facebook will help us get some ideas...

Onwards and Upwards... Nan is recovering well from her operation on her hip, in high spirits after seeing her Daughter, Son-in-law and grandchildren yesterday (who loved the crutches she's been given!). Mum and Dad are at New Wine with various church members and the young people are preparing to lead worship next Sunday.

I'm looking forward to spending more time with Chris this week as he is photographing a couple of horse events. We've been together for over two years and celebrated on Saturday (belatedly) by going out to London for lunch, dinner and a show. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful boyfriend. The Lion King was awesome. Dinner at Circus was slightly disappointing - Chris came away hungry and we both had a headache by the end of it - nothing sweets from Cybercandy can't solve...

All exciting. Tomorrow I'm going to pop into Basildon to sort out holiday things, visit my Grandad's grave on his birthday and pack a bag to spend time with Chris!
