Good day yesterday . Sermon prep in the morning then lunch with Phil & Alistair from Emmanuel in Northwich . It is always good to get together with Alistair and chat . We walked in the sunshine after lunch . It was a glorious day .
Later on Rob & Amy popped in to see us which was great . Rob & I enjoy a bit of banter and when we get together we enjoy ripping into each other !! The scouse sense of humour :-) I love him dearly and he begged me not to publish the photo that I took of them both .... mmm ..so here is the photo .. :-) sorry Rob ...but Amy looks beautiful ...I will entitle it Beauty and the Beast ...

Lots of tears shed yesterday as we left Anna to fend for herself in university world . Heart wrenching stuff, Laura was balling her eyes out saying "its not fair we can't just leave her here" ;-( I had to remind her that she wasn't in prison just the halls of residence ;-)

Anna is off to University this weekend . It's difficult to come to terms with the fact that she will no longer be around . We will all miss her , we all love her and we will pray for her every day :-(
She is "Slipping Through our fingers" ....soundtrack from Mama Mia movie ...
She's Leaving Home ..by the Beatles ..

Mum was admitted to hospital yesterday over on the Wirral . Gill & I visited her in the afternoon .She has lots of physical problems going on but the saddest is her mental condition , she is gradually losing the plot ! Whilst this is sad, it does also provide moments of humour like when she started drinking her walking stick like it was a schooner of ale ;-)

Gill and I were married this day 21 years ago ... We celebrated last night by going out with all the family ...Both of us are thankful for the years we have been together . Marriage , in my book and more importantly in God's book is highly recommended:-)

Took Anna ( my eldest Daughter ) on a Dad's Date Day ( something I do twice a year with each of my girls) ... She wanted to go back and re-live some childhood memories, so we tripped over to Congleton where we used to live and to a local beauty spot that was a childhood favourite .
It was good to go back and strange to think that it is now four years since we left there ... Memories are very special things .
Bumped into Abi & Becky on the way home ...nice to see you girls .
