An extraordinarily busy week...

...packing up prizes and arranging prize-presentations for young people in a big schools  Religious Education project.  Satisfying work. We got extremely warm hurrying to the Post Office with great cases of heavy parcels on the final hot days of the summer...but it was all well worth it.

The Project would not have been possible without the generous support of the wonderful parish of St Joseph's, New Malden: we had the use of a large room in the parish centre, plus storage space for weeks beforehand for the various books and the children's work, plus access to the big and well-equipped kitchen so we could enjoy lunch and coffee...each day we could join the well-attended 10am Mass, and later,and while we worked upstairs, happy sounds from a children's playgroup came from the main hall...on Thursday there was Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament all day, people quietly coming in to pray...

Like so many millions of people worldwide, I've been praying this week for peace in Syria...

Our government's appalling record in foisting gross projects of  evil social engineering on our poor country means that it has no moral authority whatever to intervene in any other hapless country at the moment. See here for a useful update on PM Cameron's horrible social legislation.

A happy break for a Birthday, and a very delightful celebration Tea. A lovely parcel from a relative in New Zealand with a most beautiful skirt, so I was able to be elegant for the party. A happy day.

And on Sunday, gentle Autumnal weather set in: off to Mass here, and the lovely team of LOGS, the Ladies Ordinariate Group, gave me a glorious Birthday bunch of flowers.
