Day 13 – This week, in great detail

Sunday -

The first day of a week - and Church i the morning.  We have 2 services; the first is a "Breaking of Bread" (Communion/Eucharyst) that starts at 10, and the second is a Bible teaching at 11.  We then have coffee, which I help serve before heading home ... I drive myself and dad.  Mum has't gone for a couple of years as she doesn't sleep well and the 9.30 leaving the house is early.

Then after lunch, I wash up, while Dad takes Jiffy for a walk, then when they get back, Mum and I take Jiffy for another walk ... his Sunday treat!

Then afternoon tea, and then Dad does Bible study while Mum and I play ... she plays piano and me the clarinet, which means sight-transposition, so it's fun and good for both of us.  We are working through the hymn book "Golden Bells" at present!

After tea, I leave about 6.30 to drive back to Bude ... this time stopping for petrol at the bottom of the road, and getting here about 8.10 ... then some internet time before bed.

A normal Sunday.

James - my name

It's All About Me!!

I realised that in writing my "Getting To Know You" meme this morning, I hadn't actually done a proper update in ages .... so, for those who were wondering - here is some scribbles!!


I am still job hunting - 6 months now.  In that time I've had 8 interviews, so I can be positive in that there is something on my CV that is working - the right job is out there, and in applying for numerous assortments, one day all the boxes will tick in my favour.

Still positve!


The Physio has been great - I think one of the good things was finding out that I damaged my diaphragm 20+ years ago ... so all the problems and odd breathlessness I have had have been for an actual reason.

I still listen to James in the car - as requested ... to listen to breathing patterns while talking.  I come from a county where 1/2 of us speak very quickly.  Add poor breathing and you have a problem, so James is helping!  The other half of that is that I have to read aloud every day.  Well when I read my Bible in the morning I read the Psalm aloud, so that's good - and it's true that doing that makes you actually focus on the words.


As I said I wrote a Drabble this morning - but I'm also 1/2 way through another chapter of my "First Date" fic .... poor mabel_marsters  


Yesterday I commented to spikereader that since giving up riding I was noticing a weird side-effect ... my jeans were shrinking!

So, I've started swimming again.  This morning I swum about 1/2 mile ... not bad for someone who is actually petrified of water.


Oh well, there isn't any news - but thought I would just say "Hi" and catch you up with the "nothing".

My real news today was, as I said in my last post, I had washing on - hung it up ... was just on my way back in ... when ... the line broke!  I almost hadn't bothered hangign out as it won't actually dry - just thought it was nice fro things to be a bit out in the fresh air.
