Not blogging

by Richard on June 29, 2008

I’m not blogging tonight. I’m too tired. I’ve been away from home overnight, sorting out some stuff about the house I’ll be moving to in August. It’s all coming together, but these things take time. If I had been blogging though, I would certainly want to have mentioned the story of the cardboard bicycle. It sounds ludicrous, but if you think about it, a bike which is both light and cheap is a remarkable thing. Even if you could only get 6 months of riding out of it, it would still be worth the sort of money they’re saying it might cost.

I’d probably want to do a post about the news that family meals help pupils achieve better exam results [Note to the Times editor: Remember i before e except after c!]. This shouldn’t be a surprise. I’m convinced that the social benefits that come from family meal times are enormous. If I could make them compulsory, I would.

I’d certainly have to blog the return of Davros to Dr Who tonight. Brilliant! The storyline was lunatic, of course, but to see Davros and a Dalek host again was a wonderful sight. If you saw it, what did you make of the ‘cliffhanger’ ending?

And I’d definitely, definitely want to link to our friend PamBG as she looks forward to her ordination at the Scarborough Conference. God bless, Pam!

That’s what I do if I was blogging tonight.

If.

Richard, I thought you might like to know that I have a ticket for the service in which Pam will be ordained, so I hope to be there - unless I find that there is a slip-up in the arrangements I’ve made for the MET stall at Conference. (I’m surprised to find myself in charge of this stall this year! I hope I haven’t ‘bitten off more than I can chew’, but it should be good.)
Every good wish for your move.

It should be a great service Olive. It’s good to know that there’ll be at least one blogger in the congregation.

Thanks for your good wishes and keeping your family in my prayers as you prepare for your move. Glad we don’t have to move again for another few years! (We’ve also done a bit of moving before going into ministry, so I sympathise)

I look forward to at seeing some of you at Conference. I’ll be there from Monday. I’m a stall holder so won’t be taking part in debate. Some will be glad I will be mute. I’m not so sure…

For the first time, I find myself wishing I was going to Conference. (Strangely, I was at the Conference the last time it was in Scarborough, and I’m pretty sure that the ordination service I went to was in the Toll Gavel Church where Pam’s will be. So I was there 10 years too early!)
