A Week From Hell

Not been a great week with the RW away on holiday. Started fine with Pat's first Sunday, which involved negotiations with the Police. Welcome to St Aug's Pat!

Tuesday saw a nose-dive with Archie careering into my groin and serious pain as a result. However, I managed a funeral and a wedding today too!

Welcome back to the RW tomorrow. I need someone to feel sorry for me!

Welcome to The Revd Pat Smith

I relived my own ordination day today.... And ended up in tears, as usual! May God bless Pat in this new ministry and as she exercises all the gifts she was given today.

Things to Look Forward To....

Was at the Cathedral last night for the rehearsal for Pat's ordination on Saturday. It all seemed a bit of a mish-mash, but, as always, it will all come out in the end and will look absolutely perfect choreography on the day! I remember these days when I used to take rehearsals in St Mary's and often it seems like you're trying to herd a flock of cats, but it all works when the day arrives.

Visit to the surgeon today who proclaimed that the hernias were fine and a good job had been done. He promised that in a couple of weeks the pain should be gone and I'll be super fit again. He suggested that he could surgically remove my iPad from me, but I declined. Jeez! My life is on that!

Hailey Gets Baptised!

It is a very strange feeling baptising your own grandchild. There are just things in life that you want to go perfectly, and this, I guess, was one of them for me! My perfectionism stumbled to the surface, and so was pretty uptight that everything should be just "so"!

I needn't have worried, though, with everyone playing their parts excellently. The Star of the Show certainly helped things along by crying her way through the proceedings. Obviously of the opinion that this sort of thing  should not be inflicted on her by her Pappa, of all people, she gave her lungs a good exercise, and grabbed my microphone to enhance her displeasure! We made up later over a jar of yogurt!
