Apologies for the lateness of this blog post, what with the long weekend I almost forgot to make an update! We’ve been fairly busy as usual this weekend, but it’s been very enjoyable.
On Friday we spent most of the day revising: we have an exam on Saturday for our theology course on the pentateuch. (The exam is optional, but it does help cement what you’ve learned in the course). We took a break from revision to go to the Good Friday service at Eight Ash Green.
On Saturday afternoon we headed over to Ipswich to see my parents, and spent the rest of the day with them. We spent a bit of time looking around Christchurch Mansion, which is actually a very interesting old house to look round – and all the better because it’s free!
On Sunday we went to church in the morning, and then afterwards drove down to Kent to see Phil’s parents. We didn’t do very much on the Sunday except for watching “The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency” in the evening – which was very good, I really must read some of the books!
On Monday we spent some of the time revising and some of the time learning to play bridge (!) – I’d never played bridge before but I had played a similar variant online called Spades. It seems quite complicated to begin with but after a while you start to get the hang of it!
In the evening we went to see Joseph at the Adelphi Theatre in London — it was a birthday present for Phil’s sister, Roz. It was great fun – Lee Mead was in it, and he put in a very good performance! I hadn’t seen Joseph on stage before (although I did perform some of it when I was in primary school, but that doesn’t really count) and I really enjoyed it. It was very good fun, and the music is so catchy and engaging you can’t really fail to love it!
Afterwards we drove back home, and that pretty much brings you up to date.
