black king

Lazy Sunday afternoon

After the trials and tribulations of an overbusy week, I left London
on Friday night to get home about 10.30pm. There had been unhappiness
at Bromborough station earlier in the evening.
Saturday morning, I went to pick up a parcel from New Ferry depot,
while David went off to buy some shoes, as he had left his good shoes
in Sheffield.
Then we reconvened to go off to Mark and Kat's wedding. This was a
wonderful celebration of two young people who now set off on a life
together.
In the evening, we all went off to their evening reception, but
because we were all tired and Christopher was quite sick, we didn't
stay late. Nevertheless, we were all very happy to have gone there.
Christopher had chemotherapy of epic proportions on Thursday, so
feeling sick on Saturday was not really a surprise. He felt so much
better today. Steak cooked at home for lunch, so different to
struggling with a slice of bread yesterday.
In the morning, a service led by me, with Philip preaching. And now,
rather reluctantly, on a train to Chester en route to London.
Sometimes, deadlines are not movable.
.....
So this hasn't been the best weekend for us in some days, but in other
ways, it's been rather pleasant, especially the wedding. On the whole,
I would rather be at my house tonight, rather than travelling to
London to do probably almost a full day's work at the end of the day!
And after that, five more.
Just south of Tamworth. It is getting cold. And dark. And the clouds
look very menacing. That is all.
