Daybook Entry – 28th July

021114_2314_DaybookEntr1.jpgFOR TODAY

Outside my window… it is cool and dark

I am thinking… it will be easier to sleep tonight!

I am thankful… that my daughter didn’t have to have an operation today

In the kitchen… are random piles of laundry waiting to be done tomorrow

I am wearing… green t-shirt, grey shorts

I am creating… a wish-list for my future

I am going… to the doctor’s in the morning for a follow up on a scan I had a couple of weeks ago

I am wondering… what he’s going to say

I am reading… I’ve just started reading “Torch” by Lin Anderson. It’s the second in a series about a Scottish forensic scientist and I really enjoyed the first one so I’m looking forward to getting into this one

I am hoping… for a couple of clear nights when we are on holiday so we can do some night-time beach photography. Having just booked our second stop about 100 yards from the beach in Fife I am sooooo excited!

I am praying for… a quick recovery for my daughter; my gran’s health; the horrific violence against children in Gaza and Syria

I am looking forward to… my holiday next week

I am learning… how to deliver a sermon. Yes, that’s right! I gave my maiden sermon yesterday at St Peter’s Church, our sister church in Blackley. It felt amazing to do it and the feedback from people who heard me has been very encouraging.

Around the house… are signs that a camping trip is imminent

I am pondering… an early night

A favourite quote for today

One of my favourite things… is brie on crusty bread

A few plans for the rest of the week: church meeting tomorrow, visit to the GP, clothes shopping for holiday for Ethan (I’m sure he sleeps on a stretching machine each night), band rehearsal Friday night, special band rehearsal on Saturday morning for a WWI Commemoration service on Sunday

A peek into my day…


Homegrown cucumber from my Dad’s greenhouse. Very tasty!!

    That poster sounds like conversations me and the cat have:
    “Brain is of dumb, me no fink now”
    Cat says “no worries. Lap is made of warm, me is sleeping”

    My Dad’s sermons were always funny and insightful. Mum steered the ship by knowing which hymns came next while he did the star turn. I’ve done no end of public speaking since but wouldn’t know where to start with a sermon….. Faith, I suppose.
