Started today at the church helping to set up the building for the holiday bible club this week. It’s always good for the church to be able to share the gospel with the children who live in the area as well as get to know them and their families whilst in a fun environment. It was good to see so many people there, all helping to inflate balloons, affix bunting, sort out materials amongst other things. Before we knew it, all was ready and it wasn’t even lunchtime!
Spent the rest of the Bank Holiday in central London to celebrate Sam’s birthday. We first had a ‘flight’ on the London Eye, which was interesting. Whilst it was a good view of London, allowing a vista spanning from Canary Wharf, through the City, out to Vauxhall and beyond, I must admit to feeling a little underwhelmed. At least I can say I’ve been on it now. 🙂
After a short trip to get some food, we trundled along to the Royal Albert Hall for a Prom concert with an all-Mozart programme. I must admit, of all the works of Mozart, I find his piano concertos entrancing. I would have been happy just to listen to piano concerto 24 on its own, so having the symphonies (34 and 38) and the opera excerpts was a bonus. This evening’s performances were superb, and as an added bonus, the birthday boy seemed to enjoy the perfomance as well, even if it isn’t his usual cup of tea.
