The Sealing Ordinance

[Preface]   I love the nature of the First Sunday of the month in Relief Society. It’s a time when we as a presidency get to pray together and reason together about what we want to teach. We base the topic on something that we feel the women in our stewardship may be in need […]

BRITISH BOOKS

I don’t know how I can even deign to call myself a real Brit without ever before visiting the British Library. Every book that ever gets published ever gets a place at the British Library. Needless to say; the collection surpasses my understanding of “complete”. I strolled over one day after work and found myself […]

PLACE LEAST LIKELY TO FIND YOURS TRULY

I mean really; just try to imagine me attempting to do any sort of rolling around shenanigans in a place like this. The people-watcher in me,however, couldn’t help but slow down a little to watch the kids at Southbank. I wondered if it was something they did to keep them from thinking about more important things- […]

ETCH-A-SKETCH

Thanks to my wonderfully talented friend, and up-and-coming star of interior design luxury, Jade, I got to scam on the soft opening of the Mayfield flower show at Sketch- which by the way is my new happy place. It’s arguably the most time I’ve voluntarily spent in the restroom… Because I suppose it’s hardly a […]

SUMMER RESOLUTIONS

I think it’s just the wet winter talking, but I’ve been feeling that old itch, sure it’s about that time to spin a globe and drop my finger on a new home. But then, the leaves re-appear and the nights get longer and I realise that in the Summer, there’s no place I’d rather be […]

ROBOT PAVILION 

Here’s the Elytra Filament Pavilion, created by a carbon fibre cell robot. science! It’s at the Victoria and Albert museum in South Kensington, and will be growing all summer to demonstrate the growth of engineering in our fair land. I love London for its pop-up curiosities here and there.

LETS PRETEND I LIVE HERE

On the embankment of the River Thames, sandwiched between Westminster palace and Trafalgar Square. I’d take a penthouse in this probably-very-old-or-very-Arabic-money building any day of the week.

SOPHIE

I met Sophie the day I moved to London. It’s a significant meeting for me, but even more so for her because she also met her husband on that day. We clicked immediately and dissolved into a fit of affectionate giggles- me, because I was deliriously nervous and a little frantic to have moved so […]

ME & THE NEF

Best thing about visiting with family over the past month was bonding with nephew Emre who, by the way, loves me. He is his own little commander; doesn’t like to do what he doesn’t want to do, and walked around like he’s leading a posse. I dig it. I babysat him while his parents went […]

He’s In Your Boat!

I’ve lately been reading stories of the Saviour and boats. Not separately: together. I’ve previously written about Jesus walking on water, toward the storm-tossed fishing boat that held terrified friends. This story is instead an account of the Saviour, who travelled with his followers in a small boat. A storm gathers and soon the passengers […]
