But on Tuesday night, evening-meal was much better than the movie.
I don't remember very much about Wednesday morning, but I'm sure we did something exciting. On Wednesday night, we went off to Bebington for another meeting.
On Thursday, it made for a very exciting day. We set off to Wirral Grammar School to confirm David's place in the sixth form, and after we came back I had fun spending the afternoon carefully filling in the form for a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check. They didn't do those in the old days, but I need one to be licenced as a Reader in the Church. Living in New Zealand until last year makes it more exciting, of course, as I also need to acquire the equivalent document for New Zealand. So I spent most of yesterday afternoon sorting that out, before Ian and Debbi came round for evening-meal. It's been a busy week for entertainment.
This morning, it was off to see the Rector, who needed to satisfy himself that my documents were in order and sign to that effect before I went off to the Diocesan Office in Chester to drop off the documents there, so that we stand a decent chance of getting what we want before the Licensing Service on 14 October.
Date for everyone's diary: Ian's licensing as Reader in the Diocese of Chester - Saturday 14 October, 2:15pm, Chester Cathedral. All welcome. Refreshments at my house later in the day, details tba. All welcome. RSVP
While I was in Chester, I had a look to see whether I could find a way round backing up material onto about 30 CDs before my laptop dies. A 160 GB portable drive for £60 seemed to be an ideal solution.
So I've backed up a load of stuff since I came home.
Apart from that, just some listening to YouTube - old songs from Whistle Test and from Jacques Brel, to name but a few. More later.
