Jane received a telephone call for me at home on Friday afternoon, which she passed on to me instantaneously using the wonders of Windows Live Messenger. I called him back straight away.
The call was from a friend of mine in Edinburgh: a retired priest looking for help to cover a couple of Sundays during the summer … at St Paul’s, Monte Carlo, in Monaco. Flights and accommodation are covered, seemingly.
After a weekend of deliberating and pouring over our diaries, today I called him back and said yes — of course! What an incredible opportunity.
I find out on Thursday what it all involves. Apart from an exciting adventure.
