No boxes, some boxes and a farewell

A huge, messy pile of cardboard boxes

Today we finished unpacking, and completed a few of the odd jobs that were still on our home-made ‘snagging list’. At least when we return from Edinburgh tomorrow we’ll come back to a fairly tidy house. The entrance hall, however, looks pretty much like the image above. That’s Bank Holiday Monday’s task, then.

And now we’re off to Selkirk, ready to transport Mum up to Edinburgh for my final service at the Church of the Good Shepherd, tomorrow morning. The service is at 10:00, and the church building is situated on Murrayfield Avenue. All are welcome to attend. I’ll be presiding at the Eucharist (Holy Communion) and preaching.

I’m taking the SEC website user guide with me, and a Psion to make some notes. It never ends! Anyway, Jane has been waiting for me for about two hours while I get my gear together. I’d better go. I’ll take our camera and report back in a day or two with news of fond farewells and hundreds of convertions because of my sermon!

  1. Just a quick note to wish you all the best with stuff in St. Andrews. It’s 5am here (I’m at the telescopes) so I’m guessing, or at least hoping, you’re in Church at the moment! Hope it goes well – we’ll be praying too. Well actually Doug is probably asleep…useless. Anyhow, all the best.
