The train now departing...


Here we go!

This is about my third time that I have had an evening before knowing the next day is my last in the current role. It's a curious way to spend an evening. One time it has been in the pub, another on my Jack in the house but tonight was different. My phone rang and showed my vicar's number and she asked me over for dinner at hers with a few of the gang. Rather thoughtful and considerate of her, so I accepted very happily. A couple of hours' chatter and discussion (loosely based on Colossians) and not even a thought about work or the imminent lack of it. I am not papering over the cracks and blindly assuming all will be well as it may very well not be; it's just that I had a top smart night and that was cool. I am going to bed happily.

You do sound as though you needed cheering up.
I hope all goes well tomorrow and that Frank is ensconced at a new and better desk very soon.

By the way, what is Colossians about (being a non convert!)?

Hiya! That was jolly quick! Colossians is about Paul writing a letter and having it delivered to a bunch of dudes who are new Christians in Collosae in Asia Minor which is now Turkey. It challenges their preconceptions of old laws versus new.

I don't see myself as a convert or a non convert really - it's just one book of 66 in the lot.

I suppose I should have said non believer.

Hey whatever! Mine wasn't a judgment call :)

I have a nagging 'go to bed' call kicking in but I am going to stay up and lark about!

Glad you have friends that can take your mind off things for a bit. That's why good friends are for. :-)

Alaina, this is true - my Vicar was adept at it but Walsharoo is a master with just the right level of realistic sarcasm!

The friends that can uplift your mood with one expression are ones to hold on to... glad you have Walsharoo!

ST3..... watchable but not worth the effort (too low budget).

Make your own movie..... great fun!
