We had a pleasant weekend, Matthew and Chris went on a trip to Wales on Saturday and we did the usual round of church on Sunday. We went to the 9.30 am service and got a lift with Mum which avoided doing battle with the rail replacement buses. We all went to Mum's for lunch after that, while we were there we watched a crocodile hunter programme set in Vanuatu and I managed to extract a photo album from Mum's cupboard so that I can scan some of the photos from my childhood. We were back at church early to learn how to use the service running software which provides all the words for songs, bible readings and incorporates powerpoints too, which we display on a screen using a data projector. It's quite an impressive, flexible system but fairly straightforward to use. Yesterday I went to the dentist, not the most successful trip, he removed one tooth no problem, but the second one just didn't go numb, no not even after 8 injections of anaesthetic, so in the end he gave up, the tooth's still there, he'll try again next week, I'm so looking forward to that! In more cheerful news, we had a music practice last night, only 6 people came, but it was a really constructive time musically, all the same. I was vaguely familiar with the songs we practised but most I had only heard once or twice before and it was goo to learn them properly. Luckily the strange position of the nearly extracted tooth doesn't seem to affect playing the clarinet!
