Tuesday 24th. February, 2015 – A Presbytery preparation day 

It has been cold for a few days now and Mix has taken to wearing his jacket when we go out for a walk. I have never had a dog who was so happy to dress up before, but it must give him warmth in these cold times

Up and walked Mix and then quickly got into the Bothy to get things in order for next Tuesday’s meeting of Presbytery. I sent out all of the paper materials and then emailed all of the rest. I set about preparing the service for 8th. March at which the congregations of Duns and District Parishes and Langton and Lammermuir Kirk are linked and Stephen, the current minister of Duns is inducted into the new charge.

I also tried to sort out the figures on the presbytery information management system which were not altogether making sense.

In the late afternoon, Mix and I went for a walk. It is still extremely cold and the wind, while it has abated a bit, is still pretty piercing. We all dined in the farmhouse and then Rachel and I relaxed in front of the stove in the Granary. I still constantly am amazed that we should have inherited such a beautiful place to live.

In the evening I had intended to watch an old episode of Judge John Deed – one I hadn’t seen before. However, although I saw the start, I was soon asleep, waking just in time for the News and the debate that followed about our oil future. I walked Mix and was soon in bed.

The cricket last night didn’t start until 3.30 a.m. and so I missed Chris Gayle’s historic and amazing double century for the West Indies.
