I don't want to forget this post

The beautiful Tania Kindersley's writing and photographs mean a lot to me: they present me with laughter, thoughts profound and thoughts lightweight, intelligence, bravery and beauty - and some of the loveliest photographs (mostly of her superb Scottish surroundings, and the irresistible dog) I've ever seen.

This post - a quiet reflection on the nature of self-revelation to a group of strangers - sums up much that I love when I check in to her blog. Best of all, it contains one of my favourite photographs of The Pigeon (the wonderful hound).

Tania, I hope you don't mind me borrowing this photo: it's for the purely selfish reason that I don't want to lose track of it again.

Lighting a candle... needs a stand!

Can you help us?

Great Witchingham parish church (one of the six working churches in the Wensum Group of Churches that my husband is Rector of) is wanting to install something at/on which visitors may light candles and leave prayer requests. Before progressing this any further and investing in something new, we though we'd ask around - just in case anyone knows of such a thing going begging? We've asked the Redundant Furnishings Officer in Norwich Diocese and he can't help us.

If you can help, please visit the Contact page of the website above.

Thank you!
