I was on holiday last week. Before the pandemic, I would have spent time with or gone to visit relatives and friends in various parts of the country. As the holiday approached, I wondered how I was going to fill my time. I needn’t have worried or wondered as the week flew by rather too quickly. So what did I get up to?
Amongst other things, I began to tidy some cupboards. I suppose you could say that I started my spring cleaning a little early. My husband was very good at chucking things out and lived by the old adage; if in doubt chuck it out. With his words ringing in my ears, I began sorting and chucking out. The floor was covered in papers, books, information leaflets, files, along with quite a few items that I had forgotten I had. I quickly filled the paper recycling bin but at the end of it, all the cupboards are looking extremely tidy. I now have much more space to start hoarding again!! Not a very exciting start to my holiday but very necessary
More exciting was the walk I had with my family last Sunday. It was worth braving the bitterly cold weather to admire the beautiful unspoilt countryside in the depths of winter. Icicles hung from the waterfall at Cheesden Lumb, sheep grazed beside the path we walked along and ducks stood around on frozen water presumably waiting for the ice to melt.
Walking was a little treacherous in parts as you can see from the picture below but somehow we all managed to stay upright.

Lenten Study Group
Lent is almost upon us. Instead of giving something up for Lent why not do something extra and join Revd Christine’s Lenten study group. Together we will explore some of the prayers of Jesus and different ways of praying.
Sessions will be held on the following Wednesday’s starting at 7pm
The sessions will be via zoom unless lockdown restrictions have eased.
Please let me know if you are going to join me and let me know your email address so that I can send you an invite.
