Today has been spent preparing for and running our two lunchtime CUs that we are involved in and tying up loose ends in the work, such as those funding applications, before having a few days off. It is always so silly the way that we try and cram everything in just before we go away. When I was young the day before a big event such as a summer holiday or Christmas was always fraught with preparations and tying up the loose ends. It seems like it doesn’t change when you get older!

We did hear some great news today. My brother in law, Phil, got married in the summer to Liz, after they graduated from uni. They have both been on the lookout for jobs and then a place to live and Liz, has today been given a job working in a special baby care unit in Southend which is great as it means her and Phil will stay fairly close by so we can still go and see them regularly.

With it being half-term I won’t be posting for the next week!

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.

  1. Beautiful Chris – thanks. You have no idea how much I needed to read that – and I aspire to live it too.

    :: knowing that tomorrow morning my work will be cheerfully
    :: waiting for me, demanding my full attention again, as it
    :: should, but none the worse for having had to wait.

    Sadly tomorrow is my Fieldwork deadline for my degree and will fail if I don’t take care of it today. The only thing getting me through the stress and high blood pressure is the thought of the three months of relative ‘sabbath’ which will follow.

    Right that’s enough procrastination – onward!
