Well today was a bit of a whirlwind. Mondays often are. I managed to pop out to buy two new heaters for the hub and dash to the post office in a break between patients. I have decided that halogen heaters are the way to go in this cold spell and I was really toasty today during coffee time as a result.

We had some brilliant visitors today. People collecting last minute presents, people who had never been in before, children coming in to play, two ladies - one who found the other on the Cathedral Green looking lost and helped her find the hub (they are now firm friends and have swapped numbers), old friends and people who just popped in to see the ceiling. I met one of those kick up the backside people today. Someone who makes you realise how damn lucky you are and that a lot of what we spend our time wrapped up in and worrying about is so pointless. I need to remember that even when I am not with her.

Tomorrow is Lisa Purchase (our art teacher)'s family crafting for £4 a family. It is an opportunity for parents/grandparents and children to get stuck into something together. Now we have no idea how many to expect tomorrow (live dangerously!) so it's going to be an 'all hands on deck' session. I am really looking forward to seeing what Lisa will be doing with us.

See you tomorrow!


  1. Please thank Simon for the hug and the cup of tea was fantastic (Oh yes, I brought my own tea bag and made it myself.......somethings never change!)

  2. I think you will find Editor Jane that "some things" should be two words. I am relying on you to edit but standards seem to be slipping. I rely on you, you know?! And there's nothing wrong with a bit of self-service :) Love you dearly and see you at singing.
