Visit to Doris & time in Cambridge

Went to see Doris today in Brampton ( near Cambridge) . Doris is an elderly lady who used to live in Wem and was a regular at the church coffee mornings . Phil & Tee & I took a car load of her friends to go and see her .
We also took the opportunity to have a look around Cambridge ...great city . I would recommend it for a weekend break . Not sure about the nutter in the goggles though ..

Using your time .....

Last night a group of young adults in their 20's got together at church for a time of mutual encouragement . Phil & I spoke on the theme of Time ...Phil gave an interesting statistic . After the age of 35 on average you only live for 500 days .... He qualified that by saying its 500 full days..i.e take out the sleep ..take out the 3 years you spend on the loo !! etc and you are only left with 500 full days to do stuff ....

Thought provoking

Camping & Hiking & Blisters!!

Been away for a couple of days with Gill and a bunch of students from Thomas Adams School . They are all doing their bronze Duke of Edinburgh awards and that entails a couple of days hiking and an overnight camp.
The Long Mynd was the venue and I only managed to get lost a couple of times :-) Its been 30 years since I last did anything like this . It was great though and all the young people did really well ... Well done guys

Easter Monday ..visits

Did a few miles today ... First stop Rob & Amy's house to watch them decorate while we ate our macDonalds !!Then we went to Nathans finally getting rid of the blues brothers !!!(Dan& Nathan). Then on to see my mum ..she was three sheets in the wind today :-) .Then it was off to my sister Jane's to pick up Naomi ..then tea at Grannie & Gramps ... Whirlwind of visits today ..good day

Easter Sunday ...Great Day

The day started gloriously with a sunrise service on top of Grinshill. 75 folk worshipping the risen Lord at 7am in the morning ...wonderful . This was quickly followed by a cup of tea nad a bacon butty back at church . The Easter Sunday morning service was packed out with lots of new folk coming in from town . We were truly blessed.

In the afternoon some of the young people chilled out in our garden in the sunshine .

When evening came I lit the Chimenea with Nath & Dan ....they had their Chimenea baptism and I think they were converted ...great memories created yesterday ...Good day
