Dec 17th - Tuesday

It was Sunday when I last blogged, I think. Breakfast here in the manse went well. Those there munched their way through rolls with bacon sausages, jam, marmalade, croissants while drinking orange juice, teas and coffees. Sadly for me, the left overs were all cleared away and in the freezer before lunchtime! Thanks to the 'staff' for all his hard work. Two services of worship went well and then we were out socially in the evening.

Yesterday was Monday. There was a funeral early afternoon, and in the evening the manse heathen and I went to Acharacle Primary School Nativity and Panto.

While the funeral was sad, the lady was given a lovely send off my her family and friends - the church building was well overflowing! She was well known to most folk of the peninsula.

The Nativity and Panto were sweet and mad as appropriate. How the children remember all those lines! The costumes were superb and the stage set wonderfully imaginative. Thank you for a great evening. The mince pies were delicious.

Took a slight breather this morning and started writing our Christmas cards - I think they may arrive in the New Year. This afternoon I was in one of the classes in the primary school telling the Christmas story. After various challenging questions we made individual stables and a giant one for the class. The teacher will send a photo of the giant stable and I'll post it but here's my template below.

Tonight we're out socially. Meantime, back to writing Christmas cards ...

God bless!
