Tom took a picture of a Snipe in their garden this week, we've still got the small flock of Reed Buntings and the rest of our usual bird varieties. I popped into Northwich today to get some cream and biscuits, essentials for surviving the weather of course. I went round to Vicar Jane this afternoon for my regular Friday ministry meeting, I'm taking the prayers on Mothering Sunday, a week to prepare for that. I did get my course assignment finished, it's with my fellow churchwarden Keith who is proof reading for me, then I can get it submitted but no time to rest on my laurels as I have to get the proposal in for my next assignment the week after next.
It's coming up to birthday season, that's crept up on me. Mandy and Sue went on a day out in Sri Lanka to the botanical gardens and elephant sanctuary near Kandy plus and how unlikely is this the railway museum! I've got everything prepared for Messy church on Sunday at Over Peover if anyone is risking the weather, I think it's just down to Jane and myself but we can cope with most things that are thrown our way. I've downloaded a few films for a friend of a friend from college and a few other films which might come in handy as I contemplate another Bus Spot Ultra, possible featuring Bournemouth and Southampton. The heating has been on all day and it's still chilly indoors, I hate the cold. No DVD orders at all I think the weather is on people's mind at the moment. Anyway I need to do covers for the last round of bus DVDs I'll see if I can get that fixed this evening. Sorting out jobs at St Oswalds tomorrow with Tom, mystery at the moment is the 'missing' tea urn.
