We had a couple of friends from Germany (Peter and Martina) staying this weekend. We’d been out to visit them last year, so it was good to be able to return the favour. They arrived on Saturday morning, just in time for lunch. Afterwards we headed out to Nayland for a walk around the countryside there, which was lovely (it was such a beautiful day!).
Then in the evening we went to Tenpin in Colchester with a couple of friends from church. I have to say, I am absolutely useless at bowling. I really am awful – I didn’t manage to break the 100 barrier, and we had two games! Doh! I must go again sometime soon just to get some more practice in.
On Sunday, we went to church in the morning and then came back for lunch. In the afternoon a few people came round, including Mike and Andy (the minister and assistant minister at Fordham) to catch up with Peter and Martina (Peter was the apprentice at Fordham a couple of years ago, until they moved to Leipzig in 2006).
So, that was pretty much our weekend! Very enjoyable – it’s always good to catch up with people you haven’t seen in a while. Although I’m pretty hopeless at keeping in touch with people so it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like… still, c’est la vie. must resolve to be better at keeping in touch…
