The life of a runner, mother, radiopharmacist and vicar's wife – that's me!
When I got home from work today, Peter was waving around a set of keys. These were the keys to the other church, the one I haven’t been in.
Peter is vicar of two churches, St. Paul’s and St. Luke’s. St. Paul’s is just down the road from our house, so the kids and I normally go there on a Sunday. I should add that the locality and the more reasonable service time (11am vs 9:45am) may have influenced our decision to go to St.Paul’s rather than St. Luje’s on a regular basis.
St. Luke’s congregation no longer meet in the church because it became too difficult for them to maintain the building. So the church was sold to a Christian Youth charity.
The good news is that the charity are doing the church up and are keen for the congregation to come back into the church on Sunday’s and to work together with them to better serve the community. Hence, they let Peter have a set of keys. So, we all went to have a look round this afternoon.
They are also working on the main church space so that it can be an area for lots of different activities, as well as being suitable for Sunday services.
Anyway, the result of all this gadding about to look at churches was that I had to sacrifice my run. Not that it was actually any great sacrifice – it was, after all, a bit damp and windy out.
Naomi has been at her friend’s house all day. She has come back with a northern accent! I don’t know what to say. It is downhill from here.
Dominic, in the meantime has been busy scratching! Scratch is a computer programme that allows you to make animations using programming skills. So, you kind of learn how to do a bit of coding. I really like it and I once spent several days making an animation of penguins jumping up and down on a trampoline. It really teaches you the basics of computer programming with the logic that you need to write each step but it is also really good fun. You can download Scratch for free here https://scratch.mit.edu
