How my car breaking down became the best day of my life
As I drove to pick up my son for his tutoring, my car started to experience problems – first the power steering went and then the engine sighed and gave up, too. Typically I would have taken all this in my stride – but not today. For starters, it was absolutely freezing outside – with temperatures below zero – and what's more, roadside assistance estimated it would take a van an hour and a half to get to me.

Spiritual lessons and sporting glory
There’s always been a sporting divide in my house. Growing up on the edge of London, my sporting diet was Leyton Orient and the terraces. My husband is from slightly better stock, went to boarding school and played rugby. The respective merits of the two games are still a frequent topic of conversation, and never more so than during a World Cup. From Japan’s heroic victory to England’s utterly mystifying last-minute capitulation, the tournament is already shaping up to offer us many a good life – and faith – lesson.
