Saturday morning, waiting for ASDA

Good morning!

The days keep on zipping by, at the rate of seven a week. Wednesday was a good day at work, and we had a fine evening too: Debbi told us about the work of the Bible Society, including a recently published "Children's Bible" recently published in Fiji and Vanuatu...must find out more about it.

Another early start on Thursday morning, with a confusing evening, at least for Viv, as she tried to arrange for the five of us, and her mother, to be in the same place at the same time to see Wirral GS's performance of "Fame". Eventually we did all meet up - Matthew had just come back from Liverpool, where he had been to see Maximo Park playing at the new HMV shop. Live bands playing in record shops? Definitely the way forward.

"Fame" was a good show, but quite challenging for a school performance. It's unusual in that the chorus are on stage for so much of the show. Most of the songs were well done, but some of the material is rather weak. That's not the school's fault, however. A good night for all, I think, and we stepped out into the cold night afterwards. After the warmth of the hall, it was quite a contrast. Still, there's been no more snow since last weekend, just a bit of rain. Good to see sheaj34, Andrew and Ben there. Angela and Andrew were leaping about sorting out interval drinks and the like, and I think Betty was grateful for the lift home afterwards. Hope to catch up with you again soon.

Then it was Friday. Matthew and David were off to a sleepover, but only Matthew was staying there. At 10:15am, he's still not home, but I'm hardly surprised. Anyway, once I got home, no thanks to cancellations due to train drivers being sick of work, I had a bite to eat and we watched "Driving Miss Daisy" on DVD while I updated http://thesmirks.com/ with some new material about some 1978 concerts. I sometimes wonder whether it's worth it, but with almost 1000 unique visitors each month, I can't complain! On the other hand, http://baptism.co.nz/ gets over 2000 unique visitors each month. I can't complain about that either. Other stats: http://vivh.com/ - almost 200, http://www.stevejamesmusic.com/ - over 200, http://vivumimperium.com/ - over 200 and increasing, http://halliday.co.nz/ - over 100.

But this morning, I'm waiting for ASDA to deliver a supermarket shopping order and washing some dishes, and a couple of other bits and pieces.
