Diary – Sunday 20th January 2019

Sleep was disturbed by a pain in my upper arm.

Got up at about 8am, breakfast. Got together everything for Lighthouse and left at 9.30am and drove to Lancaster.

Got a parking space on Dalton Sq!!

Lighthouse prep was mainly setting up projector and laptop. It felt like we stayed in church service for longer than normal. Song and memory verse on laptop worked ok. I don’t think I had enough material for group time.

Came home, we had roast pork for lunch.

Then we went out. Drove to picnic site and parked. Walked the loop then walked along river bank and another loop to Shireshead and back to car.

Stopped at Hugo’s for ice cream.

Drove home and sat in snug for a while before Naomi left for church.

I did some email work before watching TV for rest of evening. Surprised when one of my iPhone charging cables started smouldering!!

Bed at 10.30pm
