WiM – Week in March (but was in April)

Writing about web page http://www.rev.org.uk

This review is well overdue – but better late than never!

It was my 3rd WiM, and I think the best one I've been too. I volunteered to be the admin/treasurer person, and because it happened over Easter week and the bank was shut I spent most of the week sleeping with the cash box instead of a cuddly toy, but apart from that:

Best Bits
  • Rich doing a solo in Rev for the first time
  • Getting to know Warwick Revvers better
  • Having a shower at Chrisi's on the 3rd day
  • Hearing the song I arranged performed in the concert
  • Buying a new air bed with pillow attached – best week's sleep of my life!
  • Being warm for the entire week
  • Seeing the Tshirts turn up the day before the concert
  • Introducing the Czech boys to England
  • Dancing with Kev whilst the other choir were singing
  • Having loads of people to talk to
  • Having a drink with old housemate Martyn in Wetherspoons'
  • Not having a computer for a week (see Worst bits)
Worst bits
  • Worrying about the cash box
  • Having a cash box instead of a cuddly toy
  • Forgetting my cuddly toy
  • Being so exhausted after WiM that I slept through the majority of my birthday
  • Accidentally walking into my air bed so limped around for half a day
  • Thinking that I'd lost the Czech boys (stood at the airport for an hour after their flight had arrived and not having found them!)
  • Discovering the 'shaky game'
  • Forgetting to play flute in "Getcha"
  • Trying to remember the words for "Getcha" because I'd forgotten to play flute
  • Getting the church evacuated when I was trying to make pancakes on a baking tray in the kitchen without the extractor fan on
  • Being in Chrisi's car when the exhaust broke
  • Not having a computer for a week (see Best Bits)
Funniest bits
  • Rich getting the sopranos, altos and tenors tongue–twisted so calling them "tomatoes"
  • Thor conducting, unaware that the cloud of smoke around him meant that we couldn't see him.
  • Balancing on one leg to play flute near a microphone whilst being able to see the conductor.
  • Finding out what the Czech boys were told about England "Girls are very nice, roads are weird and beer is bad"
  • Rich hugging (and nearly kissing) Jenny, thinking she was me!
Unexpected bit

Going along to a Prayer and Praise arranged by Jamie, Rich and Adair. I didn't really want to go, but decided that it would be rude not to as they had spent a lot of time arranging it and also they needed me to drive the band equipment! Anyhow, after some great worship, I ending up doing my testimony in front of 150 people, then becoming 'holy–spiritised'. So I felt lovesick (for God) for two weeks following WiM – which kept Thor entertained as it meant that I unusually stayed up late to chat to him, had about 4 hours sleep a night and couldn't eat properly, but had to go to work (only my 2nd week in my new job) as a hyperactive spirit–filled Christian, trying my best not to go into a evangelistic rant with my new workmates!
