It's school holidays here and it's also holy week, which was sort of kicked off by Easter Praise at church on Sunday evening. I really enjoyed it in the end, I always enjoy singing with a choir and it went very well, all the same I found organising the music really stressful. I was just so worried whether I was doing the right thing, and that feeling didn't really fade until we were actually starting the service, in fact I still didn't know which tune we were singing for "When I survey" until the piano started playing in the actual service, though by then I'd stopped worrying! (I had picked the right tune!*g*). Anyway it was lovely in the end, and worth all the trouble!!

Yesterday was a beautiful day here, bright sunshine and blue skies all day, the blossom on the trees is looking beautiful, and all the bulbs are in flower. My favourite of all are the primroses, not the cultivated primulas, just the wild primroses like the ones growing in the churchyard, somehow for me, they symbolise Springtime more than anything else. I didn't do all that much with the beautiful day, saw the dentist in the morning and went out for a walk to deliver card, that was lovely, well much nicer than the dentist anyway!!

Today is grey and drizzly, so I guess the washing will end up on the radiators again, meanwhile Ian has a job interview in Chester this morning and I think today might be a good day to buy Easter eggs.

Holy Week
Songs of Praise could only muster up the finals for choir of the year on Palm Sunday, no mention of a significant Christian festival at all. Very poor I thought. So glad your own service went well.

Re: Holy Week
Well we did at least talk about Palm Sunday, but it was the first Palm Sunday for years that I haven't had a palm cross, and I sort of miss it, it's not important, but I missed it all the same, I might have to make myself one!

Palm crosses
I can see what you mean about a palm cross. I remember very well keeping my palm cross almost through the year ahead. It used to be used mostly as a book mark in The Bible, but it was always something important to keep and have about the place. These days I keep my Bible in the side pocket of the car door, as I never know on what days I am going to stay out and find an empty church or a quiet spot to sit and read. The only book mark at the moment is a piece of paper with a few thoughts written on it. Remember when we used to collect bookmarks? I used to have loads of them. No idea what happened to them now... such a shame.

Re: Palm crosses
I've still got some of the bookmarks I had back then, I keep them in that secret Chinese box that my neighbour gave me years ago!
