I will be preaching next Sunday (9th September) at Valley Church Centre. Yes, I’m a bit ahead of myself, but I need to get organised now to stand a chance of getting the sermon prepared in time whilst still having time to do anything else next week.

Having had a dud Balamory DVD (scratched) from Solihull Central Library, No. 1 child was able to borrow another DVD free of charge. We pottered over to the DVD and video display in the children’s library. (Pottering is the normal form of perambulation when No. 2 child is out of the buggy.) No. 1 child very quickly and decisively went for Chigley. (Trumpton and Camberwick Green had been borrowed previously.) Well done that boy! Important to bring him up properly, you understand.
Time flies by when I’m the driver of a train
And I ride on the footplate there and back again
Under bridges over bridges to our destination

Passengers waving as we steam through a station.
Stoke up fireman for the signal is at green…
Not that anyone has asked, but the photo at the top of each page is of the Fathew valley and the Talyllyn Railway, taken from the road near Tŷ Mawr bridge looking towards Hendy.
Lots more lovely photos of the locality at the TR virtual tour.
Update: Annoying telephone wire now removed.
Surely the most annoying thing since, well, since the last really annoying thing. What were they thinking of? Duly disabled.
I feel better for having changed the “Weeks in the calendar should start on” setting to Sunday rather than Monday.
Well, Lesley has a blog, now I do too. Is this a good thing? (Or, as 1066 and All That would have put it, a Good Thing?)
