Mishaps and misadventures of me

'Okay, we're looking at John chapter 11. It's page 1034.'
I'm leading bible study in Zac's and we're just beginning.
'What page did you say?'
'1034.'
'It's 1726, isn't it?'
'No, it's not. I'm looking at it here and it's definitely 1034.'
'The gospel of John?'
'No! Luke! ...... Did I say John?'

Whoops. A good start to the bible study. You'd think it could only get better from there on, wouldn't you? But you'd be wrong.

Anyway that was Tuesday.

Yesterday I set the sat nav for a location in Swansea and found myself on the motorway to Cardiff (next city). We got there in the end. Scenic route I guess.

Today I set out to promote the fitness class starting next Monday. I arrived at my first destination and discovered I'd left the posters behind.

After screwing up my eyes in the bright sunshine I noticed I had my sunglasses in the car so I put them on.
'Oh, these are uncomfortable. Something's sticking into my eyelid. I wonder if they've broken.'
I took them off and found a strawberry stalk stuck in the corner. #joysofgrandchildren

Perhaps it's time for half an hour just relaxing on the sea front with an ice cream.

Sounds like a case of going back to bed and getting out on the wrong side, evidently getting out on the right side isn't working. ;-)

What wise words, sonata!

Trouble is, SJ, if I go to back to bed I may not want to get out of any side!
