A couple of days break ...

Went over to Liverpool to stay for a couple of days with Grannie & Gramps . We visited a stressed out older daughter who was panicking about getting her first assignment in !! We also took the opportunity to spend a day in the Lakes and met up with Phil and the mob . Also met up with Johno for a coffee or two . It was good to see that he is still as ugly as ever :-)

Prayer Breakfast with a difference ...

Every Saturday morning a number of folk meet to pray for the lost . This Saturday some of the younger mob decided to join us and cook us a bacon & egg butty ....fantastic ...although I was a bit concerned that in this photo ..of a kitchen ...that there where only two ladies present .... :-)

Energy levels ...

I must be getting old ...the things that used to be done easily with much gusto are a bit of a struggle at the moment ...hence a lack of blog posts . It will be good next week to have a couple of days break . Going to see Anna in Liverpool and staying over at Grannie and Gramp's house ...I'm looking forward to walking the dog down by the Mersey ...

Visited Nana & Anna ...

Try saying Nana & Anna really quickly ....can't be done :-)

Went to visit them tonight ...Nana in hospital (and still sadly very puddled ) and then on to Anna who has settled down with the flat 19 crew at the halls of residence and is really enjoying the friendship of the girls there ... It was good to go an feed her!! ...even though it was only a slice of orange :-)
Katie came with me and the first thing she did was raid her older sister's wardrobe and quickly sussed out that Anna had obviously spent some of her student loan on new clothes ...within seconds she had identified every new item that a girl thing or what !!!

Trip to Lawshall in Suffolk

Not sure about the camel in the middle ...although he is far better looking than Phil !!
A number of folk including Gill and I took on a 5 hr journey down to Lawshall in Suffolk yesterday to witness the ordination and induction of Steven Jones .Steve left Wem Baptist during the summer with his wife Lou and children Naomi & Ben to embark on his first role as a pastor in the Evangelical church based in the village.

It was a great day ...a blessing to all who went . Praying for you Steve and Lou . Thanks for giving us all such a warm welcome ..

I went for a walk with Gill today in Shrewsbury and stumbled across a haven of tranquility called " The Dingle " ...I will be definitely be going there again ...good place to read and pray . Sometimes we just don't know what is on our doorstep .

The Great North Run.

Gill took part in the Great North Run this Sunday . Running with her friend Helen . They both completed the 13 miles in 2hrs and 18 minutes . Gill was chuffed with the time . Not bad for an old girl !! oh i'm in so much trouble for writing that :-)

She was running for Marie Curie Cancer Care charity ... remembering Pops and Paul who both lost their battle to cancer around about this time last year. This was the poster she had on her back ..

Well done Gill, I love you and keep on running ........
