Placements and Holiday

I’ve been a bit lax about updating over the past few weeks! This is just a quick update to let you know what’s been going on:

  • Two-week parish placement in Colchester (at St Andrew’s Greenstead). Very much enjoyed it, and I will hopefully write some more detailed reflections about that at some point. During the time it was good to catch up with a few people in Colchester – we were able to go to Fordham a couple of times, and meet up with people on a couple of evenings. Colchester it a strange place for us at the moment – it still feels quite home-like, although in a strange kind of way: it’s so familiar and yet it’s not quite home, because we don’t live there any more! That placement finished on 24th June – coincidentally, our 6th wedding anniversary.
  • One-week chaplaincy placement at King’s College London. That was good fun as well – although there wasn’t so much going on (given that it’s now out of term-time for them), it was great to be able to join in with a few events and chat to the staff, ask them a few questions about chaplaincy.
  • One-week holiday in Wales, which we’re in the middle of at the moment. Unfortunately I seem to have forgotten my camera which is not good đŸ˜¦ Ah well, that’s life. I’m actually finding once in a while it’s nice to be on holiday away from the camera – when I have the camera I feel like I only appreciate things inasmuch as they make a good photo! It’s good to actually take some time out just to appreciate things without having to take photos. Still frustrating at times, though.

Right, so that’s what I’ve been up to. I don’t know how regular updates will be over the summer (hmmm, real sense of deja-vu there) – term starts up again in September, and I’m pretty sure there will at least be a few updates before then!
