I notice that thing has been happening with my blog again – nothing. I really should make an effort to write on it more often. The problem is there is nothing bloggable going on at the moment.
The HIV resource pack I mentioned is now available in hard copy, and as promised I will link to it when it’s online. It’s really cool to see it all in a printed format. 😀 That is one of the little things.
Another little thing is somewhat sillier. My wallet broked. It ended up with a hole in it that pound coins could fit through. As I don’t have many of the things I’d quite like to hang onto them. 😉 Having resigned myself to this unexpected expenditure, I wandered round the mall to try and find something that would do. I looked in all the usual haunts and thought I’d check out Monsoon – a bit more expensive than usual but lovely. Anyway, after weighing up the pros and cons of each option I took a deep breath and went back to Monsoon. Thinking that £8 was perfectly acceptable (if not a little over the £5 I spent last time) I chose the colour I wanted and took it to the till. The woman scanned it into the machine and said “That’ll be £2.40 please – no that can’t be right. Hang on a minute…”. Anyway, sometime later (after the majority of the shop staff had been involved) she confirmed that it was indeed £2.40!!!! I really was most delighted. I’m guessing black was definitely the colour to go for. I’ve been told the green ones are still the higher price.
To celebrate this I bought a sparkly blue flower to go on it, so I know it’s mine. All in all, it was still around the same price as the cheaper purses I saw. :D:D:D As mentioned above, it’s the little things that make me happy.
Another little thing is that I *might* be following in Smudgie’s footsteps. I hinted at this a few posts back but I’d guess the time has come to explain a little more.
I’m in the process of enquiring about starting local preachers training. I’ve been trying to think up excuses not to for ages but they all seem to have run out now. 😉 Anyway, I went to meet with the Superintendent and he’s a lovely guy who seems quite supportive, as do the church. I’ve already agreed to become involved in some of the all age worship services. The new minister seems supportive too. There are still two more stages to go, if I understand the process correctly, it has to go through church council then the local preachers meeting. I’ll know by the end of November – at which point I’ll be miles away. He he he. I’m away for w*rk while they’ll be deciding for me. I think I’m away during church council too, so it’s a good thing I’m not on it. 😀
I think that’ll do for now. Next time I blog, hopefully I’ll have something interesting to say. That might be pushing it though…
