I am not a "trekkie" but one thing from Star Trek is a must which I don't have. And could desperately do with at the moment. A food replicator. Press a button and what you want is there straight away. I want to have breakfast but I've run out of milk for my shredded wheat. Normally the milk would be sitting in my fridge thanks to "Earth's" second best alternative to the replicator; SAINSBURY's on line shopping.

However, decided this week I'd go myself later on in the day and do it the old fashioned away after having a leisurely morning inside. That has now  been abruptly brought to an end as I need to venture into the cold and visit the SPAR! Ggggrrrrhhhhh or should I say bbbbrrrrrrhhhhhh?! Have a nice day :).
Bad hair days are real. I am writing this as a warning to anyone who thinks they can neglect this important fact.

I had a rubbish day on Thursday. Started with running late then running even later because I’d forgotten to put the wheelie bin out. Just felt like one thing after another. “Anne” aptly calls them Jonah days.

Only hit me the next day where I’d made a fatal error. It all came down to the hairstyle. I’d skimped on time and settled for less than 100% purely based on time saving considerations and not efficacy and holistic well being. I paid for it the rest of the day. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Even if it means skimping on breakfast, make sure you don’t let bad hair spoil your day!!
What is the best that life can offer you? A flourishing career? Gorgeous house? Plush car? Hectic social life? Fulfilling relationships?

Even if you had all these things there would still be something missing.

"Most people, if they have really learned to look into their own hearts, would know that they do want, and want acutely, something that cannot be had in this world. There are all sorts of things in this world that offer to give it to you, but they never quite keep their promise" (1)
C.S. Lewis said: "God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world."
(The Problem of Pain, 1940)

Many of us would never have recognized our need for God had it not been for the pain we were experiencing. It was that way for me.
