I'm getting a bit of stick for not blogging for a while.....My excuse is - it's the holidays. So, to recap on the last couple of months:
We had an excellent family holiday in Spain, including two day-trips to Barcelona. But the best bit was definately being in a hotel rather than self-catering. Every day we sat down to eat food that we hadn't had to buy or cook - and no dishes to wash! What a treat for hard-working parents! Here we are enjoying a seat in Parc Guell, Barcelona.
After the holiday, Guacamole Guy took Chilli-boy & Chilli-girl to England for 10 days & left me on my own - working hard & spending time with friends.
When they got back, it was all systems go getting ready for the church holiday club. We were using the Pyramid Rock matierial from Scripture Union, which follows the story of Joseph. It was brilliant the way the story drew out issues so relevant to children today, like forgiveness and God's plans for their lives. Lynn led our team with a perfect blend of forward planning & reliance on God. It was, as always, a privelege to learn from her & be part of such a united team.
After that, it was back to work & school - trying to get back into the routine. It'll get easier! I had a chance to meet up with Biz for coffee this week. It was nice to meet her IRL (as they say) after commenting on each others blogs & Bebo sites for the last few months.
Today, we had a lovely pot-luck style lunch with our homegroup - it's always great to sit round the table with such good friends.. We always say "we must do this more often" - next time anyone says that, we'd better get a date in the diary - planning is paramount in these things!
Well, that's you up-to-speed if you were wondering why there's been no guacamole. Normal service will be resumed (as they say).......
