Today’s journey went fine, remarkably speedy. And it has to be said, London drivers are awfully courteous these days. Also, thank goodness for satnavs, which enable complete lack of dither. Well, almost complete. And we had bacon sandwiches and good coffee for lunch.
Good coffee has been one of the Splendid Things that has come out of the last 20 or so years, don’t you think? Time was, it was undernourished instant almost everywhere. Now, that’s just at the average church hall (I’d like to make it clear that you get delicious coffee and home-made cakes here at Z’s church).
And that reminds me, it’s Harvest Festival tomorrow. I did my effort on Friday, with a basket of vegetables in front of the choir stalls and an arrangement of fruit by the font. I left flowers in a bucket for others to arrange. I spent £45, which may sound quite a lot for fruit’n’veg but not a lot for flowers, but I’m ever the practical Z and I thought the recipients of the produce would like something they can eat. I’m also supposed to make cakes for the lunch after the service. As well as play the clarinet and the organ. Better not have a lie-in tomorrow, I should say.
