Son no.1 and fiancee tying the knot in approx 40 mins from now.
Am in posh frock; hair done, face on, hat in situ. Just need to apply jewellery, shoes, clutch etc. No need to be nervous but am anyway.

Aw, thank you all - it's been a lovely day.
Have just returned to hotel room, kicked off shoes, unshackled self from glad-rags and thankfully chiselled off make-up.
Phew! Cup of tea, feet up and bed.
No -no organ playing (regrettably) and the CD provided the only glitzch in the proceedings, as the correct track couldn't be found and so bride was kicking heels for over 15 mins.
The old ways are the best, sometimes....

This Sunday we are using the Pentecost Liturgy...

I suppose it matches with Epiphany hymns in Advent and vice versa

I once heard a sermon suitable for Holy Week - the first Sunday after Christmas!

....so called because you might use four letters whilst assembling!

I read that as "flapjack furniture"....blink.png

 

....which might explain the four letter words used while assembling, especially if one found one had just eaten a vital piece. blink.png

Seems very odd that a little over two years since mum died I'm fine with her birthday and mothers' day but fathers' day has me very weepy.

I know how you feel, although I still have my mum as you know. Tomorrow I’ll be visiting the graves of my dad (d. 1983) and my step-dad (d. 2009). I’ll be shedding a few tears for both of them.

Bit of a whinge coming up:

Feeling under-appreciated.  I go to a choir where I hold the 1st altos together (others cannot read music). Have suggested to choir master a particular song which is really beautiful.  Ignored. However, he's chosen some other pieces (not as nice) by the same composer - Chilcott.  Not one word about my suggestion.

I also feel slightly miffed that someone who has now left choir due to having a busy social life, came back to one rehearsal and a performance to turn pages for the accompanist and was thanked profusely in the concert for this service.

Feeling very slightly as though I might just say get st***ed next term. (I probably won't because I'm too soft.)

@Hedgehog I have been there more than once over the years. Sounds like it's time for you to move on and find a different better choir? It's too easy (years of experience) to plough on through a sense of 'duty'. Don't: look after yourself and your interests first.

Thanks for that TV. I am trying a bit of subterfuge to get "my" suggestion sung by the choir, but it may not work.  

Yes - I'm starting to feel as though I need to look after myself, and perhaps speak a little more bluntly on occasions.
