  • Milestones...

    Nine years ago I moved to Glasgow (actual date of arrival was 29/9/09). I have now, to within a few weeks, lived as long in Glasgow as I lived in Duston (Northampton) which was 9 years and 2 months... soon Glasgow will be the place I've lived second longest in my entire life (Warrington at 11 years still the longest as yet...)

    It's good to recall the nervous excitement I felt nine years ago, especially as today is our AGM. I feel very nervous today, not entirely sure why, so it's good to remind myself of the strength and certainty of the call that drew me to this wonderful, challenging, diverse, hopeful and hospitable group of people.

  • Back soon...

    OK, faithful reader(s), I really am now about to head off on my holidays.  No blogging for the next couple of weeks.

    Take care of yourselves, and I'll be back soon.

  • Friday Fun....

    Yesterday, I realised my EHIC had expired and, too late for it to arrive in time, ordered a new one.  At least it'll be waiting for me when I get home. And I have a contact number in case of need...

    Today I went out at lunch time, reached into my bag to pull out my phone to send a text... and realised I had put in the TV remote control instead.  Oh dear.

    Then in a cafe, I ordered a pot of tea - which arrived without any water at all (at least that one wasn't down to me)

    It all made me laugh, which is a good thing, and demonstrates, were any demonstration needed, that I need a holiday!
