Writing about web page http://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/christingle/2005/landing.html
I was meant to be going to church twice today, but circumstances mean that I am now only going once. However, the service I am going to will be great. It is the Christingle service (the one with the oranges and Dolly Mixtures – see web link for further explaination!)
I am playing in the makeshift orchestra which will be a great laugh because most people haven't been playing long and hence it sounds fairly substandard! But, the church will be packed, we are expecting about 250 people. Dad is Churchwarden, Mum is Sidesperson and I'm general dogs body!
Just need to get some more revision done before I go, what a shame.

What do you get if you mix 20 Beaver Scouts, a mini log each, gold and silver spray paint, tinsel, glitter and glue?
Supposedly the answer is a Christmas table decoration, however, my experience this evening would lead me to believe that the answer is, A LOT OF MESS!
(And I thought I had done all my heavy lifting work in week 10. No one told me about the tables I had to lift at Beavers!)
I think that our house (in Leicester) must have a flag pole on it, that is invisible to me, but obvious to everyone else. I also think that is is operated as the one on Buckingham Palace is. Let me explain why…
- I arrive home on Sunday morning, by Sunday afternoon I had been telephoned by my old kindergarten teacher asking me to be the narrator for the Crib Service on Christmas Eve at Church.
- Monday, I am telephoned by my employer from last summer and asked if I am willing to work more than 1 week at the summer school.
- Tuesday, I am telephoned by someone else from Church and asked if I will play at the Christingle Service, and go carolling at local retirement/care homes.
I suppose it is nice to be wanted, and it definitely gives me things to do, which is very welcome.
N.B. Reason for title = tonight I am going back to being called Mole as I go and help out at my local Beaver Scout Colony – what fun!
