The service went well this morning I think. At my little church we are a teeny tiny but wonderfully diverse group of people. This morning we had teenagers and toddlers, people in wheelchairs and with learning difficulties, the elderly and the middle aged - a wide selection of ethnic groups and experience. I just love it. because we all sit close to each other and there are only about 15-20 of us, it gives a wonderful feel to worship. Little by little the church is growing and we may well outgrow our small space soon. I hope we can created something as intimate in our big hall WHEN the time comes!

This afternoon we went for a walk round the fishing lake. It is just down the road from our house and you just step off the pavement into another world. Wonderful.
Lucky is really settling down well now - hurray! So I think tomorrow will be official adoption day. She is beginning to tell us what she wants and to sleep a lot more. Phil had to drag her out for a late night walk yesterday!
I'm beginning to think I want a fatter dog to stand next too. It would be easier than dieting...
Took some snaps of Carys too - who looks so grown up...
until you give her a pile of leaves to play with!

Here is a layout I have just finished. It is for the holiday album but has no orange in so I won't bother with that idea!

Who would have thought that £3.50 would have provided as much entertainment as this helmet did?
