Feb. 16th, 2006

I had a lovely chat and coffee with sheaj34 this morning, the afternoon was dedicated to cleaning and tidying ready for the party on 25th. We also had our Asda order delivered and I cooked a roast for an early evening meal before Ian and David headed out to pick up some rail tickets we had ordered earlier online and then to Birkenhead School to watch the Merchant of Venice, meanwhile Margaret, Mum and I headed out to The Theatre Clwyd to watch an Alan Ayckborn play called Chorus of Disapproval. It was very funny and made for a very enjoyable evening out.
I'll be off to Coffee Plus in the morning, and then it will be back home to tidy and things. Think I should go to bed soon or I'll never manage to get up in the morning!!

Ooh, you're having lots of nice coffees! I'll have to go make one myself! I've just been at school learning a new hymn with the children.

Coffee is such a comforting thing, whether you're by yourself or in company!
What was the hymn, was it nice?

Hey, where'd your comment go?

The hymn was lovely, it's a NZ one by John Phillips called With Eyes that are Open. It has some lovely lines, like
Take these hands
Use them for the work that you have planned

and

I feel your light in me
You set my spirit free
Help us teach your children how to grow with dignity

and

Looking through your eyes
Do you see what I can see
A billion shining stars over mountain, land and sea
Aotearoa crafted by God's hand
Together we can treasure the beauty in this land

it's lovely!

That sounds just lovely, thank you for sharing it.

New Zealand really knows how to celebrate its magnificent land, this land is beautiful too and has such a wealth of history but people here don't seem to be very in touch with it or aware of what a treasure it is!
