What an extraordinary weekend I've had! Saturday morning started with a trip to the Church Hall with Matthew and Christopher who were going on a day trip to Llandudno with Pathies. They seemed to have a good time they went tobbogganing and then down to the pier.

After I left them I went into the Hall to help set up for a coffee morning to raise money for the Rectory. Lots of people came and lots of cakes were sold, we raised over £500 which wasn't bad for a mornings work. After that I had lunch at the Rectory and then Debbi, Mike and I painted the walls in the hall. It is a big area to cover but we were using a lovely peach colour called Light Terracotta and it looked great when we were finished.

I made some really tasty vegetable soup for tea when I came home - and caught up on bits and pieces of admin and email etc in the evening. I even found time to write a bit....

This morning we were out to church with Mum for the 9.30am service and stayed on for the Family Service at 11am, where I was playing the clarinet. After that we went to Mum's for lunch, a lovely roast and strawberry cheesecake.

Next stop was the church hall again, where I was setting up tea and coffee and some snacks for the music group between our afternoon rehearsal and our Palm Sunday Easter Praise service in the evening. Then it was over to church for the practice, then tea, then the service. We were playing some lovely music and Mal had done some great arrangements. I really enjoyed playing so much...a bit messy in places but it's been a long time since I've had really decent parts to play and be properly miked up to play them and I just loved it so much... I would have loved to play all night and into tomorrow as well... So right now I'm buzzing from the experience and just want to go and do it all over again!

Tomorrow I will be back to earth with a thud no doubt, but tonight I'm flying... Tomorrow, when the music fades, I need to post off a holiday payment, two birthday cards, and a CD order, then I've got an Asda delivery coming, and then there is tiling and painting and cleaning and sorting to do... Maybe a trip to Birkenhead too - we'll see!!

So glad you had a perfect day! And I remember Llandudno, I visited there, oh, 23 years ago now. I still have an etching of the castle in my bathroom.
My very not turquoise bathroom :) *pokes viv*

My bathroom won't be turquoise much longer - pout! Well I hope not anyway...

I used to go to Llandudno on holiday when I was about 4 or 5 years old, my main memory is of the sheep on the Great Orme stealing our Jaffa Cakes!!!

That does sound like a busy but rewarding time you are having, and the playing music bit sounds exhilerating. I know how that feels (but our music group seems to be allergic to putting time aside to practise at the moment) and I'm glad you had such a good time with the clarinet.

And five hundred pounds is wonderful (I can't find a pounds sign on here!). Congratulations!

It was a good weekend, busy but lots of fun. This week I have a lot to do and sort out before we go away next weekend - and I'm sure I should got more than the 4 and a half hours sleep I had last night....

I have an NZ keyboard with no pound sign too! - but there are £'s on Steve's website so I just copy and paste from there!

Here are a few I have spare!!*g*:

Go. Bed. Early.

Practise it!!!

I'm going to try and do it right now. It's not even eleven here. Although I have to bring in the guineas, put the cat out, feed the fish, turn off all the lights, brush my teeth... it all takes time LOL!

Don't like going to bed... always seems such a waste of time... like sitting waiting around for my toilet and bathroom to be done...it is taking soooooooo long, I am very bored and very impatient and I really really want to scream!! Trying very hard not to say something rude!!!!
