Intermittent

I'm a task related person, if there is a task to do I will put it off right until the last minute!!

Most days this is how I feel, but I know I don't work like this. Doing tasks, completing things you said you would do is a lot easier if your laptop at home works.

But actually sitting in my office, I realise I've done a lot more than I would normally do at home. It's a shame that online seminars start this week, otherwise I'd be quite happy that my laptop didn't work.

The solution is a simple one, get a new adapter (which I think is the broken thing). Luckily I have a twin and we buy the same things, including similar laptops. So I potentially have the simplest of solutions at my fingertips... wednesday afternoon will be the test for that one.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) not all solutions come as easily or as simply.

This month Soul Action is calling young people across the UK to live in a slum for a weekend (by live I mean build, inhabit, and dismantle). Just one weekend, it's not a lot, and it doesn't make the problem go away.

One sixth of the worlds population live in slum conditions every day for years on end. We're just raising money. Soul Action is here and our fundraising page is here. Act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God.

Hi Karen,
This morning I stole your great moose photo from your Canadian trip for use on my own blog. Hope you don't mind. I did give you credit and a link in the text.
