Stop press: I’ve moved!

It seems quite apt for a last post here, on a blog I defined as “sharing stuff I’m learning as I go”, to say: I’ve learned that I’m not really good at compartmentalising and that trying to keep separate blogs for different purposes just isn’t the way for me.

So, from now on I’m going to do  all  most of my blogging in one place, which I’ve named quite simply Meirav’s Blog. (The one exception is Church Laundry, which I am going to keep as a separate entity as I feel it really is fulfilling a specific need.)

If you’d like to keep reading my posts, come on over to my nice new blog, and click the “follow” button.

Why I don’t think I can computerise my to do list

Sometimes it’s me…

I’ve mentioned this before – I get annoyed when I feel people don’t listen to each other properly, and I find it hurtful when it happens to me – when I feel someone has not really heard what I said, … Continue reading


perhaps my search for a pattern is actually my pattern?

just read another chapter in Personality and Prayer and I feel – wow… where do I start… this is an excellent book, so helpful in understanding myself better and understanding others better. the bits about people whose personality is very different … Continue reading
