May the HOPE that is only found in Christ be born again in you today.

Today was my first meeting of the volunteer development group for Greenbelt. So it was off to London on the 8.45 from Manchester. It was a pleasent journey down on what was a crisp clear morning. As the train sped along I was treated to some lovely views of the Cheshire countryside. The company was equally pleasent as I was able to share it with M. He has not been well lately so it was good to check up on him and find out how he was doing. We were there early and planned a coffee stop at Liverpool St sadly however, the tube had different ideas. We walked onto the platform straight on to the tube and then sat in a tunnel for 15 mins. So it was straight into the meeting.

Gosh it moved at a pace, only having three hours ensured we kept focussed and didn't allow for diversions. Still it was good to see the folks in the office and gave chance to say goodbye's to some who were leaving.

After the meeting we had time to kill.

So over to Covent Garden to buy some presents, walk round Liecester Square and then back to Euston to grab some tea before heading home on the 18.05. Delays on route meant I had to wait 30 mins for my connecting train. Home for 9.30 a long day but a worthwile day.

A Night with Royalty

Went to see the Kings of Leon with the lovely L1z tonight. On Saturday L1z had asked where the venue was, knowing that it was her least favorite in all manchester I tried to put off telling her by changing the subject several times. Boy that girl's persistant, so I told her. Predictably she was disapointed and spent the rest of the night moaning. I pointed out that I had tried to save her from this pain but she wasn't having any of it.

Back to Sunday, they were good musically tight, good stage show and creative use of video. Yet having said all of that there was something missing I consult L1z for her opinion. I should have known "that's what you get for holding a gig in the equivalent of an aircraft hanger" was her response as she looked up from the card game she was playing on her phone. Mmmmmm perhaps the gig didn't quite hit the mark or L1z iz right the venue is crap, oh well I'll chalk that one down to experience.

The night was rounded off nicely when a fight broke out in front of us as we left. You know when you have one of those nights when you would have been better off staying in!

Overwhelming Busyness

I doubt anyone stops by here anymore. However, I was told by a least one person recently that it had been a while since I had last blogged. I haven't stopped it is just I never seem to have the time or mental capacity. So blogging will continue and normal service resumed shortly. What am I talking about, this is normal service!
