Happy New Year! I'm just one month into my Sabbatical (ends mid April). It has taken time to slow down, with admin to be done, desk to clear, VAT report to do, etc. But, the model railway rebuild has begun, and we are having lots of family & Weston times. I'm re-reading, Alison Morgan’s books in preparation for her to lead our annual EBRG retreat (14-15 Jan). Leaving Christ Church after 30 years was difficult and emotional, but we are very appreciative of all the folk there have been and still are to us. SIMEON (CMM Choir) was a good start to sabbatical and end of our time at Christ Church. We are now starting to settle in to Holy Trinity Lickey, where we already know quiet a lot of people, and Rev Margaret Brighton has been very welcoming and supportive.
Life at CMM goes on without me, and over the next few months there are exciting events:
