It's been a busy couple of days. On Friday after Coffee Plus I went round to Mum's for lunch. We had a lovely lunch but spent most of the afternoon on the phone to British Telecom about Mum's phone line which had mysteriously gone dead. Eventually we talked to someone who said there was a big problem in the area and normal service should be restored by Wednesday - meanwhile no phone! - great huh!!

David came home to tell me he had been made a prefect at school, then he went to a party dressed as a celt:



While David was at the party, Matthew went to a battle of the bands at a school in Upton, and Chris went swimming with Pathies in Birkenhead. Ian and I went out for a meal, and ended up at a recently opened Afro carribean restaurant in Bebington called RNK. It offered lots of interesting food like goat, cassava, yam, chickpeas, squash, plantain... familiar in the Tropics, but unusual fare for a British audience. I hope they do well because the food was lovely, but i don't think it will be easy for them.

Today started with a prayer meeting for Harry and Viv. After that I dropped the Christian Aid money which I had collected in to the church hall to be counted before heading over to the Rectory to paint. Things are coming together but there is still heaps to do in the bathrooms and the kitchen. The garden there is looking just beautiful...



When I finished at the Rectory Chris and I went into Birkenhead to buy him new shoes and a new bike.

We have also changed internet providers today to Virgin... everything is working but we need to buy a new wireless router which is compatible with ethernet and they seem to have mislaid our telephone number and replaced it with a new one... can't sort that out till Monday! So tonight we only have one machine with internet access instead of the normal five, but at least we have some new tv channels to entertain us !!!

The garden is lovely, so is David - but he wouldn't thank me for saying so!

COngratulations to David being made a prefect, that's great. And a Celt, even better *g*

The garden sure is lovely. I'd like to look out on that each day.

Would that mean you'd have to be married to the Rector? Vicar? Minister? Man of the Cloth? Or just have the house without the trappings *g* - sounds good.
