Wednesday 28th. January, 2015 – Lots of Different Activities! 

This is the Hen House bedroom ready for us to start work. We hope to completely plaster-board the room over the next couple of weeks. It shouldn’t take all that time, but there are so many other things to do as well – as today’s story indicates

I got up and walked Mix, my but it was cold today. Then I moved into the Bothy with lots of bits and pieces to do for the presbytery. I must admit that I did get side-lined by the Big Bash finale from Australia where the Perth Scorchers (for whom I was rooting) won against the Melbourne Sixers at Canberra on the final ball in one of the most exciting T20 cricket matches I have ever seen. Brett Lee, playing his last ever cricket match before retirement, with the scores level with three balls to go, bowled out two of the Scorchers and on the final ball, had it not been for a fumbled throw-in, would have had the batsman run out. As it was the Scorchers scraped home off that final ball. It was spectacular.

At this point I went to the Hen House and cleared the bedroom in preparation for plaster-boarding. Rachel and I started by plaster-boarding the ceiling, not all of it, we will complete it next time. But we are making progress.

David arrived and I had coffee with him and soon afterwards I took part in a conference call with other members of the Green Pilgrimage Network. These are exciting times for the network and I enjoyed hearing from my colleagues.

In the evening I went off to a presbytery committee meeting, returning home just after nine – Wolf Hall had started on the television so I kept out of the way (working in the Bothy) until it was over so that I can watch it all. Instead I watched the News while I ate a belated supper before walking Mix and going to bed.

It has been a hugely varied day – but quite fun!
