Quite odd

I saw on facebook today that Social will probably be meeting with Nemesis at some point whilst she's in the states on Holiday. Which seems odd as I know that Social and Nemesis are on the other side of the world but it doesn't seem like Nemesis is on the other side of the world.

But then again I guess that's the beauty of blogging and all of our modern day communications for you. You can know exactly what people on the otherside of the world are up to on a day to day basis which makes you forget just how far they are away. Which I suppose is especially true in my case as I do keep this blog updated day to day after all :-)

It's been another stereotypical Monday, i.e it's the hardest day of the week to get up. Of course with autumn and winter closing in on us fast it's gonna get even harder. Especially as I would love to be able to hold true to calvin from the cartoon Calvin and Hobbes maximum about getting out of bed in the morning.
" I'm not getting up until it's as warm out there as it is in here!"

I forgot to mention yesterday that we had a nice surprise at church as a girl who has been inactive for a very long time suddenly decided to come back. I'm not sure if she will keep coming but at least she has come back. That's the first step and the first step is always the hardest. Anyway I gave her a lift home as she needed to get home as she volunteered at a local youth group which is run by a lot of churches here in geektown. " It's called Passions" she told me cheerly " Why's that?" I asked and in reply she matter of factly stated that the building they use, used to be shall we say " A house of ill repute" although those weren't her exact words. I'm sure you can guess what she actually said . I advised her that she might not want to be quite so matter of fact about it if anyone asks at our church.

The start of institute is just over a week away now. It will be a lot of fun but it's also slightly nerve wracking as with this brand new start at Loughborough we need to make sure we get it right as it were. Fortunatly some of the plans I have had in that regard are now starting to come together. It's going to be hard work but as they said at conference
" If it is to be it's up to me"

Later folks.

We just met up and had our lunch on The Other Side of The World. It was lovely, but not as lovely as being in England with everyone!
