Back to Wirral

Well, as might be expected, Chris de Burgh's show was magnificent. He played most of the songs from his new album, along with four from Spanish Train and a load from elsewhere: the crowd delighted with the performance, of course.
After that, it was back to the hotel for coffee and sleep, before we got up for another complimentary breakfast before setting off to St Giles Church in Sheldon, where I had worshipped from 1984 to 1990. Some of the people we remembered were still there, and it was good to catch up and find out what had changed there. (Not very much.) Then it was back to the hotel, onto the station, then Birmingham New Street (Subway sandwich), Crewe, Chester, Bromborough, home before the evening service in Bebington and there goes a weekend.
Monday, a quiet Monday, where I went to New Ferry to pay in a cheque, buy some shorts for David, post a letter, pick up some food, then come home and have lunch, wash dishes, think about life, talk to recruitment people...
Today, a quiet morning at the end of which eventually an online Asda order was delivered, and pretty soon after that I set off for an interview at a local bank, which seemed to go very well. Getting to the interview was much more of a challenge than the interview itself: trains were delayed and cancelled, buses were struggling after a road acident had brought Chester almost to a standstill.
And once I was home, it was almost time to go out to another meeting, though if I had known another train was cancelled, I would have had another 15 minutes.
But now I'm back.
