A busy weekend

Saturday was spent mostly painting at the rectory, Debbi and I were working in the entrance hall by the front door transforming it from gloomy black to sparkling white! (or at least that's the theory!!) while Mike was doing Spiderman impressions as he painted up the huge staircase!!

After that I did some shopping for and started to set the church hall up for the shared lunch for Amy on Sunday. In the evening we went to Libby's 40th birthday party at her house. It was lovely, all out in the back garden, there was a buffet including a big spit roast, lamb and chicken, and lots of salads and accompaniments. It was all put on by Al Fresco feasts, a company run by Thenassis Meikos, a Greek guy who was at Liverpool University with Ian long ago!!

Ian was preaching at the 9.30am at church on Sunday morning, on a passage from 2 Samuel. I thought it was a good sermon, which is the highest praise I can give - his wife is normally his harshest critic!!!

The Lunch for Amy afterwards went well, with a good attendance, heaps of food and a good sharing of her time in Chile, though I'm sure there is much more to tell!

Yesterday Debbi and I did more painting at the Rectory, and then after lunch Mum came round for coffee and a chat. The evening was spent doing website related things and playing a multiplayer game of Age of mythology, while David was busy making a celtic brooch for a celtic outfit for a party he is going to next week - pictures later!

Today I'm still fighting our internet connection to update the church website, we will be changing internet provider in the next week or two... watch this space for details!!

Looks like Mike is holding on tight ! Did he let go with one hand to wield a paintbrush ? LOL

That was a picture of Mike as he got into position to paint - he seemed quite happy once he was in position painting!!

Yes the bathroom is lovely now, just need to put the towel rail back up and the new bathroom cabinet!!!

Ooh, you're doing all sorts of interesting things! The food looks very festive, and the rectory must be just about sparkling by now!

I love the idea of a Greek-catered outdoor meal, it sounds delicious.

Parts of the rectory are sparkling... but there is still so much to be done!! - about 6 weeks until it all has to be done!!

The Greek meal was just lovely though the big gazebos where it was held blew away in the middle of the night!!!

The gazebos blew away? That sounds like Wellington!

We had a perfectly calm dawn the other day, and went to get the paper and just stood out at the gate and looked at the world in wonder.
