Friday

Outside - cold, freezing cold. Hail. Thunder and lightening. Inside - warm, big crackling fire.

Despite the cold outside there is a bottle of Sparkling Burgundy chilling in the fridge - it's our wedding anniversary today so we shall have a glass tonight and sit in wonder that we have survived another year.

Then we will have another glass to celebrate Tom's new job. YES! A new job!! More about that next week. But for now I will say he is delighted.

This Sunday we have a special mass at the school. The girls each have a part in the mass and this is Aislin's first official school mass, she's thrilled to be carrying the eucharist candle to Father John. I shall take photos. This mass is being held in the school hall instead of the church because it's a special celebration for the school being (amost) The Feast of St Dominic (it's a Dominican school). So I should be safe enough from divine bolts of lightening as I enter (something I'm always wary of when entering the real church - so far so good, but you just never know). Who says I never have any fun.

Tomorrow I start my 'Simplify Your Life week' jobs with some decluttering and reorganising. I shall share, in tedious detail I'm sure, how that goes.
