On the eve of going back to work there is already one phone call from a parishioner's daughter telling me her mother has moved, there is another one telling me her mother is dying...and there is lined up this week...a conference, a tutorial and seminar, personal supervision and peer group meeting...on top of all this I have to just remember how to do it all. And I also need to process the mail for the 6 weeks we were away.
At least on this my 55th birthday I have gained thermal underwear, and I feel comfortable weraing it and comfortable because I am wearing it! I had a minor shock (age I suppose!) when I realised I was 55 not 54 today!
