When the barman at Galley makes you a bespoke iced coffee but youre supposed to be at Pilates... It was much more fun than Pilates though! #cocktails #Galley #islington

Really? Since when are menopausal women past their peak?! Surely you mean the economy is having its male midlife crisis! Menopausal women are fabulous feisty and wise. And if youre not sure about that let me introduce you to a few! #womenempowerment  #downwiththepatriarchy #disgraceful #economy #patriarchalpropaganda #howdareyou #feminist #furious #bbc #greyhair #fiftysomethingwomenrock #menopause #womenshour

My brilliant husband organised a birthday trip to the country for me and he even bought a cake! I turn another number this week which I am trying to embrace. I shall officially be over the hill and entering my wise phase. I look forward to finding out what is on the other side of the hill. Unfortunately I think I am still not acting my age but some of us are just late developers! Thanks to Anna Harry Vicky Charlie Primrose Sue and D for giving me such a wonderful day.

What I find really odd is how the Victorians knew so much more about Medieval history than we seem to! Perfect little neo-Gothic church of St Marys Itchen-Stoke Hampshire. Now sadly redundant it is almost a replica of the awe-inspiring Sainte Chapelle in Paris. What strikes me is that we need to start using these buildings for the community. Medieval churches were used as markets with a rood screen separating the sacred space from the community space. We need to start doing something like…

A candle for 2018 at Spanish Place. Did you know this was the only place you could take communion throughout the Reformation? The priests there would give communion to vast numbers and it became highly fashionable to attend. The church has been rebuilt though.

A copy of the miraculous painting of Our Lady of Guadalupe at the Rosary Shrine in Mexico. The original is painted on sackcloth that normally lasts 30 years at most and dates from 1532 the year after Henry VIII broke with Rome. The very first selfie possibly... it was imprinted on Mexican Catholic convert's apron after he carried some roses from a vision of our lady to his local Bishop. 8 million Muslims converted in the decade after the apparition. As the Angel Gabriel prophesied all…

Happy New Year everyone! The Heath was rammed yesterday but people were very earnest and depressed. Bear in mind that all shall be well all manner of things shall be well.

'A Rose that blooms in winter' found in @stmaryislington church garden just off Upper Street yesterday. Is this beautiful garden a secret Mary garden in the Medieval tradition? I would love to know the history of it if anyone can tell me? It's a very special and much loved round garden within the churchyard full of roses. A beautiful moment of loveliness in the hard urban environment of Islington and one of very few public flower gardens in the borough. ... ... ... ... #hortusconclusus…
