Nearly there

Only today and tomorrow to get through before the weekend is here!  

Yesterday's WWDP meeting went quite well as far as I was concerned. There is a group of local churches, some Methodist and some Church of England, which come together to have the Day of Prayer together each year, and we are hosting it. When I agreed to be the "organiser", it was last March, and the FH was alive and I was at home with him. Things have changed, so I had to say to the ladies who met that although I could attend the service, I wouldn't have time for a lot of advance preps and wouldn't be able to hang around afterwards either!  I asked for volunteers for the making of various props, which I am not sure that they were expecting, but they stepped up and it is all sorted now.  Delegation is a lovely word....

Technology I am not so keen on. I had a phone call last night from a steward at the church where I am preaching on Sunday. They have a projector and all the words to the hymns are put up on the wall, along with the order of service, so that they have a nice picture up there whilst the prayers are being read out, for example, and a suitable image whilst the offertory is being made....All very well, but she wants it all today.  My services sometimes don't come together until Saturday afternoon or evening, so it feels like a lot of pressure to be able to produce this today.  It also means that I can't move things around or change my mind about something later on.  Dratted technology!  The older chapels where they just use hymn books suit me much better....

And who runs?  A group of my friends have taken up running and it seems that more and more people I know in their forties are running.  The weird thing is that I sometimes have dreams about running, long distances, not just to catch a bus.  I'm seriously trying to curtail this urge.  I don't think I shall be running this year.  Or next.  It IS frugal and free, but probably not for me.

Have a good day, friends, and a warm welcome to those who have joined us here lately xxx

No running for me either!! All the ladies in our village seem to be running these days. They're welcome to it but I have absolutely no intention of ever joining in. I'm in good shape for my age and walking is sufficient for me! x

I don't do running either!

Back again - I've just had an email through from Lidl and it looks as if mini ovens are selling there for around £26 if you're still looking for one x

@SusanM - you star! Thank you for thinking of me - I have put it in my diary, so fingers crossed that our local one has some in stock when I get there!

I reserved a breadmaker once at Lidl so maybe your local store would do the same if you gave them a ring? Good luck. I bought our mini oven from Lidl and it's been brilliant.
