After glorious weather last week, the weekend was dull and damp weatherwise, however we did manage to take a very pleasant walk through Dibbinsdale Wood on Friday night before the weather broke. The wood is at its loveliest at this time of year when all the bluebells are in flower and make a blue carpet on the ground. Just as we were emerging from the woodland onto the road by Spital station, the thunder began to roar and the rain began to fall. So we sat in the shelter on the platform at the station watching rain flooding down and lightning flashing above, whilst thunder rumbled all around. That was really quite lovely too. Of course we got soaked walking home from Bromborough station, but that was a small price to pay. Meanwhile Chris got soaked on an icecream eating trip to Parkgate and David and Matthew got wet in a swimming pool in Chester!
Saturday was a pretty quiet day, Ian and I went to Birkenhead to buy a few bits and pieces but I don't think a lot else happened of note. Sunday was a busy day with services morning and evening, and lunch at Mum's in between. The morning service was the first one of a new format with the children being in church for the first twenty minutes, this seemed to work very well, though there were a couple of small glitches. Certainly crossing the busy main road seemed to be less of an obstacle than many had feared it would be. We ha a good sermon about the presence of God, based around a passage in 1 Samuel.
Yesterday we picked up some zloty for Matthew's forthcoming trip to Poland and some Swiss francs for my trip to Switzerland in June. We also did some grocery shopping and went with Mum to buy a new car. She now has a a very smart, new, red car, it is the same make as her old car but the controls are on the opposite side so it will take a bit of getting used to. Ian had a meeting in the evening and I devoted some time to making invitations for the Pentecost Party.
Today I have to face more torture at the dentist, not even the dentist I know, a different guy who hopefully is going to manage to remove the tooth they mangled last week! On a more positive note Matthew is off to Poland and Chris is off to France on Thursday, which is exciting. We are going away for a night while they are gone which will be nice too. Lots to do before then!!

Re: tooth
They think they will have to cut into my gum to remove this tooth which is why the more senior dentist is seeing me, I'm not really looking forward to it!!

Dibbinsdale Wood sounds so terribly English!! Good thing that's where you are, huh. Bluebells - *sigh*
I will be thinking of you re the tooth and praying for a safe removal with as little gum cutting as possible - OMG!

All your jaunts through Europe sound exceedingly exciting!

And hey, I'm back *g* I'll post eventually...

The tooth turned out to be quick and relatively painless, (though the anaesethetic hasn't worn off yet), but certainly the session with the dentist was much quicker and less traumatic than last week's, which left my jaw feeling as if it had been involved in a major battle.
The wood is really lovely just at the moment, but i think I need a spring icon.

good
glad to hear the tooth went better than last week. More people thinking about you this week might have helped, or maybe it was the more senior dentist doing the job. Least you can forget about teeth for the moment again.
