A Conversation...

Bookhound and I were having one of our conversations the other day, it went a bit like this... Me : 'Clocks go back this weekend.' Him : 'That means it's only five weeks to Advent and the C*******s bough coming into the kitchen.' Me : 'But surely it was only last week we packed the deccies away and put them in the loft...' And we suddenly realised that this year had somehow vanished, and we have no real markers for it other than those we'd prefer to forget. No month in New Zealand obviousl...

A series of tiny, geometric cabins in an overgrown slate quarry are a truly secluded retreat

Architectural firm New British Design has unveiled four tiny cabin retreats located in Britain’s North Cornwall coast. The Kudhva Wilderness Cabins are compact, angular huts elevated off the landscape by turned pine poles, providing stunning views of the surrounding wilderness. Inside, the compact spaces offer guests all the basics needed for a truly off-grid getaway.

A Week in the Country?

Reading A Month in the Country and then watching the film a while back, and in particular the book jacket that could have been painted from our kitchen window, and then I mentioned that Bookhound and I wouldn't be travelling far this summer because we had projects nearer home, and it didn't go unnoticed by the observant audience that you are... Well, a month might be too long, but if you are planning A Week in the Country maybe think about coming to stay in Tinker's Cott this summer... Digging...

When you’ve got to figure out how to live loved

Teaching children about God’s never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and Forever Love is something that my dear friend Sally Lloyd-Jones has done well. You can’t help but fall in love with this woman of deep theological truths and endearing warmth.  She has a way of preaching the gospel to children (and adults too) that I’ve never experienced before. And our kids have literally been raised up on The Jesus Storybook Bible  (over a million  copies  sold!)  and now Sally is givin...

The Story Behind "The Wolf Road"-- Best Books of 2016

The book that took the number two spot on our Best Books of 2016 list is a first novel by Beth Lewis called The Wolf Road.  The Wolf Road is truly one of my personal favorites of this year and a book that I will hold onto and recommend for years to come.  The story takes place in what seems like British Columbia, though the location goes unnamed, and is a brilliant amalgam of literary thriller and gritty western. Long after a cold war mis-step has turned back the clock, gold rush fever and vigil...
