Sports Day

Finally the School are brave enough to be outside for more than ten minutes at a time, wellies would have been a better option than training shoes, yet, there was not one drop of rain.
All the parents coo and ahh appropriately, yet internally wanting their own little cherub (who could never do anything wrong ever) to bash the opposition and win regardless. Ours did respectably well leaving the glory to the fastest runners. Perhaps a little early viewing of my next sermon might be good for them Lk 12:32-40 is the text! But a trip to the local sweet shop may have more effect!

There are now four fish!!, well there were, then there were three, and now there are four again, hopefully no-one will notice… …better just go and flush again just to make sure. Perhaps the church should produce a liturgy for an emergency funeral. Just long enough to last while the cystern reloads!

Fish

Many Christians put fish on their cars…

I have two in my study!
‘The boys’ as they are becoming known,
(well they are moody, only eat when they want to eat, are fussy about having the filter on etc…)
are my pastoral fish, they are quite calming actually.
It is a long way from a dog though, maybe next time. I will have to build up to it! Rabbits, Rats, Guinea pigs all meet with approval, so dogs shouldn’t be too much of an adjustment.

On the fishing subject, I visited the library again, (that’s twice in one month now, the gray hair is pushing through now so it’s allowed apparently) ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’ was the title of the book that caught my eye … watch this space!
