A Stern telling off and Greenbelt (not related to each other)

Never Conforming, you are hopeless. You have successfully failed to go to the post office for more days that you care to remember and your poor WISE partner is waiting for her presents. It’s just not good enough. You must do it! I’m sure you can come up with a million and one (legitimate?) excuses but that really isn’t the point.

Anyway, I’ll post it. I will. I promise. I’m sorry.


Life appears to have been turned upside down lately. At the weekend I’m going to embark on my third trip to Devon in the last two months. I believe this to be somewhat excessive – when I was at uni, I tried not to go more than three times a year. I would really have appreciated some time with my flat as we have such a terrible relationship most of the time ;). It feels like I’m never here. I got in at 8.30ish tonight and that’s joint earliest I’ve got in for weeks. I know that if I go to the gym, cinema, friend’s, party etc that’s choice but even so. I really need to give my flat some time. Maybe then I’ll work out where all the giant spiders live and I can get rid of them. I have also met another person from my building and we got on very well. She’s a bit older than me – possibly by as much as 70 years but she’s great and I’ve been invited to pop in and see her which I’ll do. Sometime after I’ve been to the post box. :embarrassed:

What has been more productive is that I’ve written lots of a worship guide on the theme of HIV/AIDS which will be produced later in the year. (I’ll link to it when it goes online, yes it’s got my real name in it but I’m not the only writer and what’s privacy anyway(?!)). I’ve also been to the gym twice!! I meant to go today too but didn’t get round to it. I’m not convinced that it’s a great plan to have R n B in the background. It’s one of very few types of music that is really distracting and annoying. What’s wrong with a good bit of Kerrang! style music? 😉 Apparently, what I need is an MP3 player. Anyway, getting back to what I’ve done. I’ve also been involved in planning some events for Greenbelt. If you’re really unlucky I might tell you about them too…

I’m really beginning to get quite excited about Greenbelt, even if I’m a little nervous too. It will be the first time I will have officially worked for it and there will definitely be more to do – a stall in The Pulse and two workshops (not on my own). I went through the online programme today and I think it sounds like there will be some interesting talks and other sessions. On the last two occasions I’ve been it never occurred to me to look at the programme beforehand, so I was inevitably blinded by science (and ignorance) so decided to do not a lot. This time I have bigger plans. Despite this, I’m sure I’ll end up spending a lot of time in the Tiny Tea Tent contemplating what I’m missing. I’m now trying to work out what to take. I know it’s unrealistic to take some things like a camping stove because I just won’t use it – however good my intentions. I’d better write a list sooner rather than later too. I need to keep the amount of junk to a minimum as I’ll be sharing a lift with other people. This year I also need to take a tent that’s bigger than me. Last year I took the wrong one – one designed for children that was not actually big enough for me to fit in except in a very strange position that I certainly couldn’t have slept in. It also collapsed after the first night. Thank goodness for friends who were good enough to lend me the spare wing of their tent. I think I’ll deal with all that when I get back from Devon though. Sorting things out a month in advance would probably be a good plan, but would also be somewhat daft.

Anyway, I’d better get some sleep otherwise I’ll forget to go to the post office again. 🙁

  1. Very much looking forward to seeing your worship guide.

    My prayers are with you for Greenbelt. You’ll be, and do, fantastically! God bless.
