Sunday was a much earlier start, though I still had hurry to be out of the house in time to catch my train. But I did, so I was at church in good time for music group. It was a pleasant if fairly unremarkable service, a long sermon and communion as well, so not much time for anything extra! We went to the Merebrook (local pub) for lunch where the boys all consumed enormous steaks! Seeing the amount that David managed to eat it's not surprising that he's grown so much taller in the last year or so!
In the evening Ian, David and I were back at church for the evening service, they had coffee before the service which was nice and sociable. The service had a very informal feel to it, mostly because Chris, the youth worker was leading it! But that was all good, a lovely relaxed time really, and Debbi, who doesn't normally come in the evenings, was there, so was Heather, who has been quite sick with pneumonia, for the first time in ages, so it was great to see them there too.
I have completed twenty levels of a game called "planarity" which is fun but an enormous time waster, only play if you have a few spare days at your disposal. I didn't but I played any way so I'm behind with the laundry again! The weather hasn't been fantastic here, but I think nature is wonderful, one tree in our garden is in full blossom (it is a winter flowering tree) but several other have big buds just ready to burst into life at the first sign of good weather, and on Saturday morning I watched four grey squirrels playing chase in the trees at the bottom of our garden, they were just delightful as they scampered up and down the branches.
This week looks all set to be quite busy here, and there is a pile of laundry which I need to put away before lunch, becuse it's currently sitting on the morning room table!
