Fighting for a clear desk!

Since lockdown started around a year and half ago, my desk has undergone several upgrades and transformations! But one thing that keeps happening, no matter how many new toys and gadgets I get for my work space, be it plastic plants, screen stands, candles or drawers…the desk inevitably gets messy.

The Reading Wishlist

The truth is I have too many books on my reading Wishlist, and given the rate at which I add more on, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that I will ever get round to completing it.

Mentored by Authors

Anyone who has been around this blog for long enough will know that I love to read. But from March 2020 up until now, I have deliberately taken a few steps back from reading “Christian” books. (Don’t get me wrong, I’ve read a few!) But, relatively speaking, I cut back a significant chunk. Why? Well,…
