day of prep...
well more or less (well not really) had a day off yesterday... had done some prep in the morning, then spent the whole afternoon helping Sheena 'n Geo with their house move... was good to help them get more done in all honesty... makes for less stressed buddies *wink* Anyway - made it to youth band at night, which was ok... then back to the flat and did a wee bit more admin-y type stuff.... so actually, i probably worked like 4 hours or something yesterday, so maybe it wasn't so much a day off afterall *hehe*

Was our special services for the centenary on Sunday - the morning one was really really good - loved it! *grins* it's the youth turn on Sunday, although having said that i've not actually been particularly involved in organising it so i'm not completely sure what's gonna happen....

Anyway - tomorrow is moving day for S & G... so i'll probably help out there at some point... and other than an hour long meeting with Iain tomorrow it's actually a 'day off' - dad's coming at night though 'n we're gonna shampoo the carpet me thinks *smiles*

right... off i go...

the flat =)
well here be some pics of me flat *grins*

this is my living room *grins* Geo and the guys were up to the flat to take all (well most) of his extra stuff out today and they swapped the suites :) i did have a pretty lilac one... however I do think that this one fits the decor better... =)

this be my pretty fire place - do you likey???? *grins* it's a nice modern gas fire... will be muchly cosy in the winter months i think =)

my loo.... =)

my kitchen.... small and cosy... *heh* can u spot my washing machine???? *grins*

my 'dining room' and study (with my new wireless router all set up and ready for when my broadband is activated)... =)

my lobby *grins* - without all of the extra furniture that's been in it for the past few weeks since i moved in *grins*

my bedroom... Which i might add isn't muchly 'personalised' yet.... but it'll get there... check out my new bed *grins* still not got a double duvet 'n stuff, but i'll get there eventually *grins*

special note for mum on this one... you seeing Jemima???? *grins*

anyway yes..... another day of work i guess. Spent most of the morning into the afternoon trying to sort out my broadband connection - which i surprisingly need quite a bit for work *heh* but yeh... spent ages looking at new packages coz when i eventually managed to get to the point of being able to order the talktalk deal it turned out that the estimated time for the call plan going live was like 3 weeks and the estimated time before the broadband would go live was over 2 months. was not impressed and so spent the rest of the time looking at other packages... eventually managed to get something set up with Virgin, although wasn't impressed when it wanted a credit card for the first month *doesn't own a credit card* but yeh... got it sorted eventually...... my dad is the best *grins*

oooooh and i have a new landline now too... *grins* so if you want my number then get in touch =)

hehehe... anyways... still have a couple of boxes that need to be emptied... i'll get there eventually... some of the stuff needs to go into the cupboard that Geo hasn't emptied yet... although Sheena thought he may do tomorrow but i dunno... Was funny though, i was at a bible class meeting tonight so i wasn't actually there, but apparently the licac couch wouldn't fit into the current house, *hehe* so they had to move it to the new house *hehe* but when they got it there, they couldn't get it in the door there either - or the back door, so they had to put it in the dining room window (which i might add is on the equivalent of the '1st floor' when you're in the back garden - they have a celler you see) and i have nooooooo idea how they would have managed it.... it was a huge couch - apparently there were ladders involved... total respect to them all, although i think Sheena thought they may have had to have given in and got a new suite at one point.... but yeh - i was just disappointed that they didn't take the video camera!!!! *is gutted*

but yeh... more prep to get on with tomorrow and then a big prayer walk around the parish at night - am hoping a few of the yp come to that.... plus Jen is coming to visit on Friday-Saturday which is quite exciting *grins* will be good to see her 'n chill out 'n catch up... plus a guest in my wee flat *grins*

Anyway..... there's a nice long update for you =)
hope you enjoyed *grins*

dum de dum...
back at Sheena 'n Geo's again... although they've actually popped out coz they got the keys for their new house *grins* so they're currently away looking at that.... someone tried foning... twice... i hate it when that happens when you're in someone's house when they're not there, or they're doing something and can't answer the phone... anyway so that be it.

HAd a good day off on Saturday - spent most of the day here helping Sheena 'n Geo pack and move stuff down from the attic... then we watched some saturday night tv, which i've not done for like 5-6 years, so that was quite amusing... we were watching that Maria show thing and also the X factor... was quite glad that Belinda girl got knocked out of the Maria thing... she was a great singer, but she scared me quite a bit *eek* - heh. And X factor just made me laugh... oh bless all these people who think they can sing. *heh*.

Anyway - got to church yesterday to be informed by my young people that Catalyst was last night not next Sunday as I had in my diary *argh* so that made for a manic afternoon of trying to sort who was/wasn't going and sorting out cars to get them there etc........ so yeh. Was good though... Catalyst practically always is... and my kids just seem to let rip in worship when we're there these days, which is sooooo inspiring... just wish we could help them feel that they could do that at Kenmure too..... maybe one day!

But yeh. I should probably go finish of my work stuffs and head back to the flat to do some prep before i head to church tonight.

still no broadband *cries*
still got no broadband *cries* well actually i'm not really crying coz it's not bothering me all that much.... but it does kinda suck... as much as i love coming over to see George and Sheena, it's really a bit of a handicap when i can't do some of my work etc because i don't have a net connection and therefore have to come over here for an hour or so everyday in order to get things done.... it's really quite surprising how much i depend on it... i mean when i'm on mission etc it doesn't bother me at all that i don't have a net connection, but because i need it so much for work, it's doing my head in now that i'm back....
THink i may have found a good deal for broadband though... hopefully i'll manage to get it sorted at the beginning of the week, we'll see.

I can't wait until pay day. I feel skint *sads*

things are going ok so far though.... have had neverending meetings this week... was at the elevate meeting last night... was dreading it for various reasons, but it was kl and very productive... then Nathan gave me a lift home 'n we sat 'n talked for ages *lol* ah well... good though. in fact all of the meetings have been productive, which has been really encouraging =) Am looking forward to getting back with all the young folks on Sunday though *grins* spent quite a while making a newsletter type thing with pics 'n stuff... was kinda fun... planning on sending it out to all the yp we have contact for... kinda cool =)

Man this laptop is noisy!

Anyway i think that's about it... health still not great, but i don't really feel like going into the details about that...

oh, and it's raining, and i'm wet. *doh*

missioning again...
been in Troon on mission for the past week... was good... testing at times, a great blessings at others...

am still not online on my own laptop in the flat yet... will hopefully get that sorted over the next week or so though... so updates will continue to be patchy in the meantime.

but yeh. back at my flat now... and have some nice pics up around it now *grins* though didn't get enough frames so will have to invest in a couple more at some point i think.....

i should probably go...

its been a while...
sorry folks... i know it's been a while... and i can't honestly say that i was doing a lot of busy-ness for most of it, so i don't really have an excuse... oh well... i hope you've been enjoying the hillsongs song below in my absence...

anyway - the weeist up date ever...
since the 10th July i've...
* been to CLAN and back - was awesome again, God is goooooooood *grins*
* met up with Stephen Emery - was nice to see him again *grins*
* helped dad with his wall etc in the garden - was theraputic
* generally had a nice last week with the rents and the family and gone visiting folks...
* Been given the car for a fortnight *grins* - don't worry mum, she's still alive and in the same condition as she was given *wink*
* Driven down to Glagsow with a car full of stuff *shock*
* moved into my new home for at least the next year *grins* (comment or email me for the address, or ask mum etc...)
* Have 'started' my new job.... - well not really... officially i have, but i've not done much yet as i've been concentrating on the flat - but tomorrow will mostly be a work day to make up for it... meetings meetings meetings... *lol*
* have managed to angle my way to a laptop with an internet connection (at George and Sheena's) since i don't have an internet connection at the flat yet... although having said that i've been lead to believe that the church will be seeing to getting one installed for me *grins*
* ooooooooooooooooooooooh and i got a new bed today *grins* - well it's not my bed, it's the flats bed, but it's pine and verrrrrrrrrrrrrry comfy *grins*
* found out that a couple of my friends got engaged *grins* - Congrats Amy and Peter *grins*

But yeh.. it's been a good last wee while... am feeling exceptionally tired though... Hoping that clears before going off to Troon on mission on Saturday, otherwise it could be an interesting week *heh*.

Anyway - i should probably stop hogging Sheena and George's internet connection... i'll update again, but probably not until after Troon... and at some point i'll update with pics of my new flat *grins* but that probably won't be for a wee while... so don't get disappointed *wink*
