Catch up

My goodness, I haven't posted on this blog for nearly two weeks.
I was in charge of a conference last week and this week I have enjoyed almost total media silence. I still ran two of my community/outreach groups this week but I've had lots of me-time for most of the week. As a result I'm feeling rather bored and looking forward to the primary school mothers' social Costa trip as usual on a Friday morning - I need to see people!! Let me at'em!

Actually, I popped into the office to spend some time with colleagues today. We had a leaving lunch today for a much loved and helpful colleague who was last seen buried under a mound of recyclable paper as he clears out 5 years of - ....paper?....- kind of a fitting tribute, really. We lose him but he becomes very useful somewhere else. Recycling of talents in the Kingdom of God.

Next week I have to work very hard attempting to exegete (or whatever the verb is - I seem to remember having this debate last year) for an OT assignment. I am very much enjoying the class and I find the lecturer entertaining and interesting and the content stimulating and thought-provoking.

Want to blog some thoughts on intergenerational stuff arising from the conference soon.

  3. Hi!
    new here, but want to say hello!

    intergenerational, as far as behaviors being passed on?? I'm interested in this, and have currently been reading another blog where the writer speaks on the death of character...and what is being passed down (or lack of) from parents to children.

  4. Welcome to my blog, HGF!
    I see you are in the States (?) and that we share some of the same taste in music (one of my best gigs ever was seeing the Buena Vista Social Club guys live)

    I will explain further but I meant intergenerational in that the conference I put together was for children to attend alongside adults. Challenging stuff - how do we engage all ages at the same time without it simply being glorified "children's talks"?

    Will get some time hopefully Monday or Tuesday to write more,
    take care! :-)

  5. Hi Lynn,

    I'll keep an eye on your blog, as I'm interested! I understand what you mean about trying to reach the different age groups.

    I'm in the States, currently living in S.Calif, sunny (and smoky at the moment :/) (thankfully we were well enough away from the fires!)

In the words of Mrs Doyle in Father Ted, go on, go on, go on........

Leave me a wee message! Only rules - is it true, is it kind, is it necessary?
