Ahhh, aliteration… yeah, that’s all that I’m going to manage. But I will admit that the title really does cover my weekend really, really well!!
Saturday rocked. I did some shopping that I wanted to do (photos from that when I’ve put them together). I managed to see the guys from The Club. Then headed over to the lecture theatre to see The Archbishop of Canterbury talking about misunderstanding religion. Oh, and giving the slap-down on Dawkins and Hitchens. Ha!! The BBC comment here and Rhys there. Unlike Rhys and Nessa I failed to make it through into the actual lecture theatre, even though I arrived forty-fivr minutes early. On the up side, by not getting in I did manage to get to sit with Blondie and Genieve, which was nice. Even when they sat there and talked about wedding rings.
I also noted that the Archbisop got a much longer and warmer greeting when he popped in to see us in the over flow theatre than in the main hall. As he just stood there waiting for the clapping to finish so he could say a few words.
After having a brief cuppa with CathSoc a visit up to the pub was in order, and at that point my plans sort of got changed (sorry to those in the Cricketers). You see, I got the offer to go shoot some fire arrows.
It was fun.
Then we got back to the pub just in time to see Jonny kick us into the lead. Excellent!!!
Then on Sunday it started to go wrong.
First I went to church, which generally isn’t a bad thing, expecially as it was Sung Matins which I really enjoy. Apart from one, tiny, little, small thing. The world’s most boring sermon. Well, it might have been, quite frankly when a sermon starts with; “In the first verse of today’s reading….. I sort of tune out (see cartoon below). As did portions of the choir by the looks of them. But I do love the choir. Helped them clear all the books/kneelers as they were having work done and didn’t want them to get dusty. Even got to field a few of the “Oh, new member for the choir??” by those new members who don’t know that I’m no longer local.
A few hours later (reading my book on the beach) met up with Shazam, watched a few episodes of Family Guy, met up with my archery coach and then came home.
Now I’m going to write the emails that I’m supposed to be writting……
