So after writing a blog entry out my chrome decided to break, hence my frustration with all things blog related meaning I didn’t post for a while. However I am going to attempt as quickly as possible to sum up my life in the last week.
Last Saturday I went to Argos in Leek to do some fundraising for TCT by giving out chocolate in exchange for donations, this clever tactic seemed to work and we raised quite a decent amount of money. I’m doing the same this Saturday in Hanley. Whilst on the TCT topic I’ve also joined a gym to help me train for the marathon. More details of my epic first encounter with a gym can be found (like the rest of my life) on Facebook.
Unite is pretty much dusted an planned. All you people need to do now is get yourselves there. It will be quality is my gut instinct and I was overcome with excitement when yesterday I walked into the office to find my flyers on the desk. They look beautiful if I do say so myself.
Lighthouse is going well, over the last few weeks we’ve been doing some filming of different things (football, drama, dance, craft etc) and the films have come out really well. We’ve had very low numbers over the last few weeks but I’ve been informed this is normal over the Christmas period.
On Wednesday we had a Junior Church meeting. We have (finally) changed the name to Swan Bank Kids, we introducing some new stuff and are trialing the Hillsong package DVDs so things will be a bit different (TShirts and everything) come February but I think that can only be a good thing.
Today we hosted a day for the Y3 classes at John Baskefield. I actually had a lot of fun leading games, an assembly on DNA and bread, crafts and an impromptu music workshop. The less fun part was spending an hour sweeping and washing dishes, I’ve discovered children are not the tidiest of people.
Finally I’ve got an interview for Leicester Medical School on Monday, with one for Keele the week after, desperate for these to go better than the Manchester one, if you’re the praying type please pray!
