Nick left early this morning on a ministry matter, leaving the boys and I to our own devices. We only got as far as washing the breakfast dishes before leaving to get to Lindsay and Nyree for a visit, haircut, and collection of a pie-warmer - a new and welcome addition to the church kitchen. After sharing a cuppa and catching up, the boys and I went to clean the church, it being my regular rostered turn. Caleb vacuumed and Aaron dusted - they were hugely helpful (thanks boys). Lunch time, then a quick house-clean before going to Joan and John to photograph their beautiful home in preparation for selling. I'm looking forward to sharing a couple of those on the blog in due course. Home again, with just enough time to practice and collate the songs for tomorrow's worship. Nick arrived home late afternoon, and then it was time for our evening engagement at the de Beers - a hearty housewarming gathering with a lot of familiar and friendly faces; some from church and some from school.
