The sun has got his hat on…

Strange Bank Holiday…I had planned to lounge around and file all my paperwork. Instead, I had a text from Zack inviting me to the Amyand Park Chapel trip to Virginia Water. Had a picnic by the lake, caught up with … Continue reading

Acts 2:1-41

Strangely enough, both morning and evening services were on Pentecost. Strange because I had taken a friend to Wilton Community Church as he is looking for a church near to him, whilst still going to Hounslow West in the evening. … Continue reading

Witnessed a wonderful wedding today. I’ve known them both as a couple for around two years, so it was great to see them tie the knot in the sight of God and us. May their life together be blessed. The … Continue reading

Eloisa to Abelard

Just seen “Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind” at the Odeon in Uxbridge – what a cool film. I’m not usually into romantic films, but this one was different. There was substance to the characters and their relationships, and it … Continue reading

Hez’s birthday today, so a few of us went out for a celebratory meal. Good conversation, good company and the food wasn’t bad either. 🙂 However, something went awry with the bill. Somehow, even though everyone paid their bit, the … Continue reading

After many weeks of rehersals, some of which have been doubt inducing, I think the choir I accompany will be ready for their concert in two weeks time. They sang Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “As Torrents in Summer” with aplomb, and … Continue reading

Fate?

A nice slow day. Lounged around for most of the day, practiced the Beethoven Violin Sonata for a while – showing signs of improvement – it might even be pleasant to listen to soon. Went to play snooker with Robin … Continue reading

The Bible Study this evening was on the ascension. Basically, there are four main points which can be brought out: Christ ascended above all things, he is pre-eminent, and reigns over all. As such, why should I rebel against him … Continue reading

Retail Therapy

I should probably not be allowed to wander the high street in my lunch break. (I’m sure Sarah, Becci and some of the other girls would find the following example of impulse purchasing amusing!) Somehow I managed to upgrade my … Continue reading

Iron….Shirt….huh?

Went to work wearing an unironed shirt today. You’d think people would have better things to do than remind me my shirt is unironed…but then, maybe they don’t…maybe I’ll wear a T-shirt tomorrow? 🙂
