Extra Time

Earlier this week I was praying for more time in the week (or even in a day), I felt like I was running around like a headless chicken but getting nothing done and getting further and further behind.

It's been a hard and busy couple of months trying to juggle work, family, church and time for me seems to have been reduced to sleeping and eating inbetween everything else.

Decluttering has slowed, running has paused and crafting is non existant.

I got an answer to prayer on Tuesday in an odd way. We were overstaffed at work so our boss was offering an extra hour on the lunchbreak, unpaid buy hey an hour extra is an hour extra :-)
in that hour and a half I managed to get to the shops to buy a gas canister for my heater, get to the bank for the bits you can't do online, cook lunch instead of a sandwich, do all my dishes, clean the kitchen start some decluttering of the living room and have 10 mins just for me to sit and remember how thankful I am that I have a family, a job and a loving church. Amazing the difference an hour makes.

Going to try and have a productive hour at least a couple of days each week.

I've taken today as a holiday as its my birthday tomorrow and I'm going to catch up on all the Dr Who programs I've recorded over the last couple of weeks. So may be a bit timey-wimey for the next 24 hours.

If you haven't watched the minisode 'Night of the Doctor' yet I urge you to do so now.

You may scream at the screen a little - or as I did a lot.

I loved Day of the Doctor as well, I thought I'd add! Steven Moffat did an amazing job with that one. I wasn't sure whether it'd live up to the hype but it definitely proved itself. :) Looking forward to the Christmas Special now...
Do you have a particular favourite Doctor or character?

Whoops, my first comment didn't work for some reason!! So I've posted it again. :D

Hey Joanne!

I came across your blog and really enjoyed reading it... I saw you were a huge Doctor Who fan as well as a Christian (I'm a baptist as well), so I thought you would make a good friend, haha. :)

Thanks for reading and hope to chat a bit!
God bless,
