Church Church and more Church
There doesn't seem to have been time to breath in the past couple of weeks, but life is returning to its usual (I nearly said normal) pace again.
Apart from spending Sunday Monday Tuesday and Wednesday from 9.15 am to 12.00 noon in St M's. there is also choir practice on Friday evenings, and this last weekend a 50th birthday combined with Barn dance in the church.
Then the next morning the usual Sunday morning service, and in the afternoon the installation of the new Archdeacon.
This has involved learning quite a lot of music in a very short space of time, tiring but lovely.
All the events went very well and though I probably shouldn't say it, the singing was really very good indeed.
There were a lot of compliments from a number of people (the great and good of the County) and our own congregation too.
This really makes it all worthwhile.
There has been quite a lot of social activity in the close too and this Sunday evening we are going out for a meal and then to the cinema to see the latest Bridget Jones film.
This will kill two birds with one stone for me, as I love the Bridget Jones films and have not set foot in the cinema since about 1982.
It seems the older I get the busier I get.
Well that suits me very well. It is great to have things to look forward to again.
Amazingly the weather appears to be co-operating in a most unusual way (touch wood).
I know it is beginning to get dark earlier now but that is inevitable I suppose and won't slow me down anyway.
Every day I give thanks for my new life and friends in St' Mary's, I'm so very glad I took that first step 7 years ago.
