Back from Bude

Yes, after 7 days of sun, sea and sand (as well as Sudoku, Sewing, Snoozing and other things beginning with 'S') I'm now back in lovely ol' Swindon. Sadly my camera was AWOL for most of the week, so I can't post many pics, however once I've scoured my phone I'll post the 5-6 I managed to snap!

My dad went into holiday overdrive, and ended up hiring body-boards (surf board for me!) and wetsuits for us for the whole week, so we got about 5 days in the surf. I really wish I could have surfed more as I was beginning to direct the board by the end of the week! So, if any of you fancy a week away in Cornwall next year in the Summer, just give me a buzz ;)

Apart from surfing and visiting places like Boscastle - absolutely beautiful little town in a harbour valley - we also played Scrabble, much to my mum's delight, and did many crosswords and Sudoku (is there a plural form of Sudoku? Anyway...) having bought a bumper book of 200 on the way there.

Back into the swing of things now, I'm very glad to say that we think my Gran's taken a turn for the better, and our prayers have been answered in her being more determined by the day to get mobilised and get back onto her Zimmer-frame. This represents a massive step forward, as before we were facing a brick wall of a determined mind. I'm reminded that only God can melt the heart and renew a mind. If you have been praying for her, and us (or not!), please praise God for his faithfullness and goodness in answering out prayers.

We know that in all things, God works for the good of those he loves - and we are his! - so do keep praying for her in the days and weeks to come. It's a first step, but a good one :D

In the mean time, I'm now job-hunting and getting used to the feeling of being independant in terms of transport! Onwards and upwards, as they say, I'm just loving getting to know God better atm - just reading a bit of the bible each day, learning more about him, re-learning things I'd forgotten. We do indeed serve an awesome powerful and loving God :)

Rock on in him!
