While repairing the seat hinge on one of our toilets a couple of things occurred to me. Well, to be honest 3 things occurred to me. Firstly, that I needed to clean the toilet soon! Secondly, that it’s worth remembering the next time I use a toilet in someone else’s home to check if they have a slow close toilet seat like we do - to avoid any embarrassing toilet loud crashes and potential breakages!

The launch of my first book - Broken Dreams, and Hope! is just days away now, as Friday 25th March looms ever closer.

You can now pre-order a copy of the eBook version as of now, via Amazon at this link. The Paperback version will be available from Friday morning, God willing!

In the first part of That Sinking Feeling, Part 1, I talked about a used chair that I’d bought that wouldn’t stay up. The gas cylinder wasn’t working very well so as you were sitting there it would suddenly, or slowly, drop. With a mug of tea in my hand, that became a little less than safe or ideal! While this isn’t the ongoing saga of Andy B trying to find a working chair, it does remind me that there are often things in life that we try to fix, but we simply can’t do it.

"Broken beyond repair." "Needs some TLC." "Don’t know what’s wrong, but it’s yours if you want it." Looking through Facebook Marketplace at “FREE STUFF” and you can be surprised by what people give away for free. Now, admittedly, some of that free stuff is not.

To be honest, that’s just a bit foolish.

Andy’s always been careful with mobiles phones (cell phones) and his current phone has - like so many before it - got a screen protector to protect the phone’s screen from scratches, chips or cracks. But, ever since he added his current protector, it’s been on a little wonky. Sure, it’s been put on straight, but it just isn’t centred. Which has irked him quite a bit!

So we had to replace a door seal/gasket from our washing machine which was starting to fail. While we caught it before it had a chance to cause any damage to anything, it got me wondering about how connected we are to God - where our seals are perished or warped, and allowing stuff to get in between us and God that shouldn't.

In this 2 Minute Video, Andy B looks at a blow up booster seat that's destined for the bin. But if it doesn't work, it is pointless, dangerous and needs replacing. Until it is no longer needed. Then, whether it works or not, it isn't needed.
