The lamb has been delivered and safely stashed in the freezer. I didn't have time to weigh it, as I had intended to do, but there is a rather large leg of lamb, a shoulder, a breast and a neck joint as well as five bags of chops and some offal. Quite good for £45, I thought. It will be eked out over the coming months and I shall look forward to making the most of every scrap - I shall definitely have to get some more mint sauce in!
I've been to the Harvest Assembly at the school this morning and had a lovely time - the children had poems to share that they had written, one class had learned to play "Old Macdonald had a farm" on the recorders, there was art work to view and a lovely story that another class read out in a part work form. They also sang together at the beginning and the end and I was altogether very impressed.
After that, I went over to the chapel for a couple of hours, and then home to bake - there are events going on in three of my churches tomorrow so I made three of the cheap and cheerful cakes, as well as some cheese scones. This evening I have been unpacking the Sainsbury's delivery and perusing the internet to learn more about credit unions.
I'm also concerned about a spiritualist group. I've been doing some research on that too, as I know very little about it. My cousin has been very interested in this sort of thing in the past, and my EF girls had their palms read at the show we went to last weekend - we separated and I didn't know until we were in the car coming home - they were relieved of £10 each for a 5 minute "reading".........it seems that these people play to the part of human nature which wants to know everything, and basic Christianity is too boring as we wait to see what God will bring into our lives. I can understand the temptations as there are loads of things that I would love to know, and now, but actually, I also realise that there are things that I am not ready to know, and I am content to wait for God's time. In the instant world that we live in these days, people don't want to wait any longer.
Anyway, I shall add that to the long list of things I want to chat through with the boss lady at church when I see her again, as she is very experienced and will have words of wisdom to share. Between now and then, I have to sort this service for Sunday and then write a presentation on all that I learned yesterday......Toodle pip for now x
