“One in five teenage girls is unhappy most of the time – but boys are also feeling the pressure, says new research – CHILDWISE – a leading specialist in research with children and young people”
Some work by Childwise, worth a read
Much to my surprise I seem to have ‘got into’ running. At home and at work there is a natural round-the-block run that is exactly 1.5 miles. Not far I’ll admit but means that I can nip out for 15 minutes and enjoy a jog/run. (I never thought I would use the words, ‘run’ and ‘enjoy’ in the same sentence).
I was amazed to find how much easier it is becoming and how much faster I am getting … again surprising.
So, on Saturday I thought I’d try the Park Run thing (several years late to the table I admit) and turned up to the Newbury one on Greenham Common (with 500+ others). I loved it! Didn’t embarrass myself, ran all the way, and finished OK.
I have my Tickets for South Africa! In September I shall be in our Link Diocese (Kimberley and Kuruman) taking part in a Conference. I am excited and I admit, a little nervous. This will be the furthest from home I have ever been. (On the very rare occasions I catch a plane it has been flights of two hours or less). It feels like a huge privilege though … I hope I can contribute as much as I am sure I will learn from the adventure.
I’m not sure that the Venn diagram of:
a) Ordained Clergy
b) People with £5000 Spare that would be spent on a personal number plate
Has a very large number of people in the intersection
