potting shed

leave a comment »

Mark was looking out for some pictures for Paula for ZHO Theatre company and found some shots of my alter ego Maureen. She MC’d the Potting Shed cabaret on the Walk the Plank boat May 2006 (just aftre I had been to selection conference). These pictures are of Maureen singing Anarchy in the UK and reading from a book (!???).

Just in case you don’t know about Walk the Plank here is a helpful video that will fill you in.

lost at greenbelt

leave a comment »

whilst browsing through the Greenbelt pages I was fascinated to find the link to the stuff that got left behind at Greenbelt last year. Bags, credit card, lots of hats, toys, phones etc. So if you lost anything it really is worth taking a look to see if it is here.

whilst I am blogging about Greenbelt you may like to take a look at Bruce Stanley’s very cute desktop model of Greenbelt – including the (tiny) tiny tea tent.

How did you find Earth Hour? It was very strange at our house because Saturday evening TV was dominating so to have to and all the lights turned off it was at first quite eerie. Not unpleasant – just odd! Becky was round and despite the fact Eva had a bath run she didn’t get in it because she was scared of the dark. So we all sat around with the candles glowing in the living room and told stories and jokes. We really had a great time chatting – it was like the olden days!

None of us got up early enough to get to church this morning. The clocks changing always flummoxes me. Even when I don’t forget (I didn’t this year though the last 2 years have been a bit embarrassing as I have turned up for church late). This year I just didn’t wake up. This will be a serious matter next year as I will have official duties so this really has to be the last time I mess the clock change timing up!!!!! Mark has been for a run and we are just about to have 2nd breakfast. Then a walk about the park (it is a lovely day) and that’s about the plan really.

earth hour

Get your candles out. Tonight at 8pm we must all turn the lights out (and unplug every electrical item) for an hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming. Earth Hour is orgainised by WWF. Google have more information – click here.

got to keep on writing

with 2 comments

I am nearly there – I have written an essay and am staring to write a theological reflection today. If I get this done I only have one essay and an exam to do before I finish this degree and I am out of here in June. Given that I have to sort out a move, get kitted out, arrange all the packing, cleaning as well as attend college (I will still have lectures, chapel, pastoral commitments etc until June) there will still be plenty to do. I could do with getting this bit of writing done simply so I am not so overwhelmed when it comes to all the move stuff. So, that is the plan for the day..

Not much planned for the weekend save spending time with Eva – Mark is working and I don’t have anything exciting up my sleeve so if anyone has a plan that we might fit into do give me a call.

I have had removal people in to give me quotes for the move back to Liverpool so it is all becoming very real. Everyday that I am not at college I am trying to clear out one cupboard, cubbyhole, set of draws or whatever just so it isn’t so much of a nasty job just before we go (like it was when we moved here). When we moved down here I took 2 weeks off took get everything ready this time I have an exam the week before we move so I won’t have anytime then. Can you tell I am getting a bit anxious about it? Anyway, before I get too carried away I best get on with this work.

Ting Tings vs Shampoo

leave a comment »

St Claire of Toxteth thinks that the Tings Tings are the children of Shampoo (circa 1994). I am sure this pop analysis will shock the Salford Duo as I suspect they may be basing their career on a far more credible pop pedigree. However, I will let you be the judge…

2 Shampoo videos for you as evidence in the pop trial


I must not be distracted by pop music today!
