Quaker Overseer

I am so grateful and blessed. On Sunday 2nd November I was informed, by my Streatham & Brixton Quaker Friends Meeting House that the Area Meeting  have nominated me to have the responsibility to provide 'pastoral care', in my role as a Quaker Overseer. Such a privilege!

I wonder if my Higher Power is laughing, because although I know the Universal Law is always right, I am currently visualising myself as Whoopi Goldberg, in the film 'Sister Act'

That evening I told my beloved son James about my nomination. James smiled and then said "they had better watch out." Then we both laughed

Phone Contact With James

I am so Grateful & So Blessed. Today I had a 45 minute phone contact with my beloved son James, during which he told me that he finds the online game, 'Five Night's at Freddys' more scary now than 'Slender Rising 2'. 

My beloved son explained that he feels certain that Five Nights at Freddys  can kill someone with a weak heart if played in the dark; and urged me NOT to play it.

My dear beloved son told me that he played it yesterday in the dark and for the whole of Hallowe'en night, he could NOT sleep

Rainbow Laces & Nigger

Grateful I Just had a phone contact with my 15 year old son, for one hour and ten minutes. My son told me that he is soon to run a 15k race with his Air Cadets AND my son will be wearing his RAINBOW LACES. I am so proud. The point when the conversation became a parent's nightmare; was when my son revealed that while on a trip to Poland, a pole walked up to my tourist son on the street, looked him in the eyes and called him a 'NIGGER'

Because I Am A Tory Feminist

If a woman wishes she is legally empowered to marry a woman in her faith 
Grateful & So Blessed. Thought for today, The feminist movement will continue to be flawed until we enlists male feminists support. Women can Transgender to Male and any lesbian, bisexual woman; anywhere in the World, is empowered to openly love her woman, marry her within her own faith and raise a family with her. Because I am a Tory I believe 'Woman Loving Woman' status is a number one Feminist Issue.
