Hello Osci. I thought you should have the last word (see comments on previous post).
Last Post sort of gives the wrong message, don’t you think?
I was disarmed yet again to receive Presents on leaving the PCC and the churchwardenship. I had to come home and send a rather gushing text to a friend – which means it’s done now, so I don’t need to gush at you. I did notes today for the new churchwarden – I”m afraid it ran to three pages. She was a bit shell-shocked – but I explained that if she wrote down everything she takes for granted in running her home, it would be pages long too. I also said I wished I’d had such a thing done for me, as I spent the first year getting nasty shocks (Find someone to read the Roll of Honour at the Remembrance Sunday service. Decorate the Advent Ring. Procure a Christmas tree. Who knew?)
Anyway, all done now – and I found myself chairing the meeting as well as taking the minutes and giving my report. When it came to the election of officers, I suggested that I just put down names for proposers and seconders, as we were all in complete agreement anyway – and this went down very well and saved a good ten minutes. Job well done I think, don’t you?
Oh, and then I was asked to play for a funeral on Monday, Getting a verger and organist slipped through the organisational net a bit, but fortunately we’re both free. Only just, I’d quietly checked my emails during a dull bit of the meeting (not the bit I chaired which was as sparky as you might expect, hem hem) and someone wants to meet up with me before the afternoon meeting. There’s still time, but now it’ll be a specific time instead of “I’ve got all morning, darling.”
Tomorrow, up at larkfart because I’ve got a hair appointment, early.
I think I deserve a glass of wine and a cup of tea, don’t you?
That’s twice. Never suggest that I don’t consult. Well, unless you think I’m talking nonsense, of course.
Later – it was very funny. I fancied a spot of music, so went to iTunes, where I was halfway through listening to Tom Waits’ Alice. I clicked play and got, instead of We’re All Mad Here, exuberant banjo music – I have no idea how, but instead of iTunes, Spotify played Mule Skinner Blues by the Blackwater Boys (Best of Bluegrass). It was so incongruous I nearly fell over laughing. Well, I leaned on the arm of the chair and chuckled.
Actually, I’m not typing very well. I’ve been celebrating. I’m a bit wary of trying italics in case I’m leaning over already.
Actually, I’ve just remembered. I wasn’t aiming at iTunes at all. I was intending to reply to that email about Monday’s meeting. D’oh, darlings. I’m such a fool.
