The weekend that was: Friday night was our end of year BBQ. Unfortunately the weather got to it, and we ended up hosting it at the church. However, we still saw more than one hundred young people and leaders turn out for it which was great – a good end to a great year.
Saturday was a day off which started with making a white chocolate and raspberry cheese cake for our house group social later that day. I chilled out, did a bit of blog work, played on the Wii, finished a little prep for Sunday. Saturday night was our house group social which was wonderful, great food, with lovely friends – a really nice relaxing night.
Sunday was a busy day: Hannah’s birthday, I was involved in our 11-14s on Sunday morning, and then helping out at the 11-14s and leading the 14-18s on Sunday night. In between all of that we also had our camp leaders meeting which was a good chance to set the tone and pray for camp which is now only 33 days away! Phil and Liz, Hannah’s brother and his wife popped over on Sunday night to celebrate her birthday so it was a lovely end to a good weekend with some nice ice-cream.
On my task list this week: filing and admin, trying to get camp more sorted, and starting to have a go at planning events for next academic year. I’m hoping to get a number of young people into the office as an extra pair of hands, but also to gain some relational time with them. It’s also my annual appraisal this week so a bit of prep for that.
Procrastinating about: Getting some meat on the plan for our devotions sessions when at camp.
Book I’m in the midst of: Really enjoying Death by Meeting: A Leadership Fable About Solving the Most Painful Problem in Business by Patrick Lencioni .
Music that I’ve been working along to: Been into some of the dance classics.
How I’m feeling about this week: Slightly stressed about getting enough camp prep done before I’m away.
