I was intending to go to Stoke and film buses this morning but the forecast last night was quite dire, in the end much of the morning would have been ok am but then it went to full sun but this meant it was warm enough to fix next doors fallen fence panel and get the bird feeders topped up, then in the afternoon I recommenced the weekly meetings with Jane my vicar and as well as discussing the future mission of our parish church we talked about Messy Church at our sister church St Lawrences which I'm helping to get off the ground this Sunday plus Mandy has been volunteered to get a small shopping list of misc requirements which releases Jane to have a quick cycle round the lanes if she is lucky tomorrow afternoon, moments of relaxing are rare but we did get out for a meal at the Golden Pheasant early this evening with Jane, Tom, Joe and Cathie and it was good to find that we knew folk on almost every table, the sort of circle of friends you don't get a chance to develop when you are out working all hours. I'm opening up in the morning so that Norman and Keith plus Rodney can make a start on dismantling the large tree in St Oswalds and remove any left from the festival, we have a charity pick up to clear the next weekend in support of East Cheshire hospice.
I almost wrote 'and that reminds me' which is an awful link in the circumstances, a late card from our dear friends and neighbours Don and Margaret who we lived next to in Chortlon, well their daughter has now got cancer and that after two brain tumours which just seems so unfair. Being at home all morning did let me get caught up on some jobs, cover done for Birmingham bus DVD, a whole mass of film files put in the correct folders for easy retrieval on future bus spot DVDs, I'm open to suggestions and requests for the new Ultra range and online discovered how to clean my new electric razor, so rubbish were the 'instructions'. Here is the cover for the latest PMP DVD. I'm not sure how good next week will be I'm tied up on Tuesday , Mandy has hospital appointment for another tear duct operation, first one didn't work then it's polio Fellowship on Thursday so see what the weather brings for Monday and Wednesday, Friday is my course discussion, Monday sees my ministry course start for the next term. Afew other recent release DVD covers in case you missed them over the turkey and puddings.
