The weather got colder and colder as Saturday went on, and I put up some Christmas cards one at a time. On Saturday evening, though we didn't want to, we went out to the station to renew our season tickets.
Sunday morning, a wet day, though it wasn't actually raining at the time. Our morning service was followed by a lunch for some of the younger people, and the food available was child-friendly: a bit too child-friendly for my liking.
In the evening, I preached at the service, from Colossians 1:1-14, focussing on the message of hope there. This seemed to go well: the feedback on my sermon was positive.
Then home, where it is now quieter: I have found a job, I have preached the sermon, most of the Christmas cards have been sent, so it is now mainly the Christmas preparations.
Monday morning, a mad session of tidying up and sorting out, as the group Viv meets with on Monday afternoons was meeting at our place...I wasn't there, as I still need to sign my name for the time being. Viv is right: it is a better experience when you have a job offer. I won't be signing many more times.
After that, I went round to Betty's place until it was safe to go home. Since then, it's been fairly quiet here. I zipped along to Amazon to buy a few Christmas presents for the family, but otherwise, it's been quiet. Viv came in from a carol service practice to a quiet house: Matthew was in the bath, the rest of us were using computers. And it's still pretty quiet.
In a few minutes, I will post this, and then go off and do some dishwashing while I listen to The Archers.
