Back to work, back to reality... Soul II Soul never quite sang.

Well, I'm three weeks back after a three month sabbatical and it's been an interesting time to say the least.  It was always going to be a bit of a challenge to get back into the groove and, actually, who's to say that it's a good idea to get back into the old groove?   I've been trying to catch up with people and situations, some of which (both the people and situations) I'm finding rather perplexing but the rest and recharge of sabbatical have been beneficial and have helped me through. 

After two difficult weeks it was good to get back on track with what it should be all about, as we celebrated 'On Your Marks', a Holiday Club for 80 children.  It was a great team effort and tonight I eagerly await the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games knowing that the Holiday Club team played a blinder.  A day of rest tomorrow and then Sunday morning brings around my favourite service of the year - the Holiday Club service.  Bring it on!

The picture?  I got pied today as the villian of the 'On Your Marks' drama.  Messy Church just got messier.   


  1. Looks like a lot of fun! No surprise it's an Olympic theme!! My Brother is in London for the whole time - lucky thing... Hope you enjoy the opening ceremony -we can't get it here so feeling a little removed from the fun...

  2. Oh no! We were under the illusion that the whole world was watching. Is it down to not having the right TV package? It was amazing, Danny Boyle did a fantastic job, persuading the Queen to appear as herself alongside Daniel Craig as James Bond, Kenneth Branagh as Isombard Kingdom Brunel, and Mr Bean playing with Simon Rattle and the LPO. Just fabulous.

  3. Ha! Yes it's because we don't have TV and it's not streaming online!
