This week........

.......I have circumnavigated the globe on foot,(at least it bloody well feels like it) on a new paper round.

I needed a nebuliser after the first day.
And the car was also in dock for the best part of two days necessitating plenty of Shanks's pony. My trotters are killing me!

....I have been delighted by a £1.50 pot of tete-a-tetes made doubly joyous by the fact they are the perfect fit for this lovely Wade vase, a snip at £3 in a cancer research shop.

I am pressing on with a crochet blanket that is for my eldests little car.......

I am fairly new to crochet so am pleased with it thus far, even though the pink is a bit psychedelic.

It is that time of year again....

and one greedy brother who shall remain nameless, (you know who you are Anthony) has scoffed his way through two jars in a week....

After the sad news of the death of the blinded policeman and listening to a woman on the radio who was suddenly and totally blinded saying she missed gazing at the clouds most of all, I got a crick in my neck last evening gazing at a lovely mackerel sky and thanking God for my eyesight.

Lastly, I have secured a position with a medical agency for some regular practice nurse work in a Christian practice. On the reception counter is a slotted box, not for repeat prescriptions, but for prayer requests. I was totally uplifted by this.  It is inspiring to come across people in this increasingly secularised society who, like the women of Jerusalem Christ encountered on his trip to Calvary, are unafraid to announce their faith. I cannot wait to start work there next week.
