(no subject)

It always seems like only a couple of days since I've written one of these, but when I check, it seems to be the best part of a week. So, what have I been up to this week? Some of the week has been taken up with the usual Christmas things, but some less usual things too. It's great to see Viv enjoying being a part of music ministry again, singing in the Christmas choir and playing the clarinet.
I think it was Wednesday that we went off to get a Christmas tree and some lights and decorations for it. By contrast, we went tothe church's monthly prayer meeting in the evening. In the good old days, I think it was called "Central Prayer Meeting" but it's now called "Time with God". (After today's service, our rector, Steve, mentioned that he reads this, but as I already have a wide and diverse readership of persons known and unknown, I already try to watch what I say here!)
Thursday was signing-on day, but for once I have job interviews to look forward to next week. Magnificent, especially if they result in offers. Friday was another quiet day, but on Saturday we went to the cinema to watch The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, referred to as LWW from now on. Collapse ) Last night, Viv sang in a carol service in Tranmere, which I am advised had mulled wine served afterwards. She brought home some song sheets to sort out for the service next week, which kept us amused.
This morning, the last sermon from Ephesians: family life, work life and the whole armour of God. Nothing about Gaudete nor John the Baptist. Afterwards, I went off to the hall to listen to Colin talking about the Chile visit, a talk of interest because Amy, now in Chile full time, was my Bible Class teacher a long time ago. And I was talking to her only this week by the internet magic of Skype. But now, as mid-afternoon turns to night, it's time to click the "post" button. With luck, it won't be another week.
