Bad News

Have just heard that Matt's father has died this afternoon. Words fail me.

I can't help thinking of how my dad died of leukeamia too and how empty Matt must be feeling. Lord I lift Matt to You and I pray You will comfort and heal him and his family. Lord in Your mercy hear my prayer. Amen.

Updating you

1) My back hurts and the pain is increasing. Could you pray for me please?
2) I have written over 1,000 words of my first essay
3) I am debating whether to apply for a job that sounds really, really good! I just wish it popped up a year today but it's happened now and I don't know that it's right to try for it. Grr! I need a bit of wisdom here!

Praying for Matt, dad and family.

Salivary Stones

Never heard of these before...they sound pretty gross. Ew!

Youth Club was great last night. The village hall was being used as a Polling Station which meant we had to be field based. I had the foresight to take the mobile caravan, which was good because it rained and so we had everyone crammed in there! We had Gaynor (T2 Matthew Project worker) with us too to do some drugs work and she seems really keen to come back on a regualr basis. I'm also looking forward to Lou coming along and helping us out if she has the chance. I'm frightened because I don't want to scare her off!

Should be writing my essay now and I'm not. I really don't help myself do I?!

Congratulations to Andy Reed who has been re-elected as MP for Loughborough!

Political Posters

I now have three political posters on my kitchen window. The original one says in green hues "Vote Green". I said in passing that maybe these posters ought to say "I'm voting Green, why don't you?" and so that's exactly what the second one says. I haven't had much time to study the third one but I think it has all the major parties written on it but Green is written in much bolder letters running diagonally down the centre.

So that's decided then.

Rifling through dustbins again

It must have looked fairly odd to any passer by that a person in Waitrose car park was standing on tip toes with her hand fishing in the magazine recycling box grabbing handfuls of magazines! They are for Lauren's art project. Honest!

I am still wearing my Spring Harvest band on my wrist. It is looking battered and tatty but it's still in good nick and doesn't look like it's about to drop off just yet. I'm thinking of contacting the Spring Harvest team to see what the record is. I'm sure I'm in with a good chance.
