Tuesday 27th. January, 2015 -- The studio is plastered 

The studio has now been plastered and is starting to dry – some bits will take longer than others because of the remedial work which had to be done around our fairly inferior joins. But once it is dried and painted it is going to look superb

Rose early and welcomed Simon before quarter to eight. He was soon hard at work and completed the plastering by the end of the day. He is coming back a week next Monday when we will hopefully have some more plaster board ready for him to plaster (and maybe we will be better at it by then as well).

I spent the morning getting the presbytery papers together and sent out for the meeting next Monday. Tasks like these make one realise just how easy e-mail makes everything (and how cheap as well).

I then started work on the congregational statistics which have to be sent in to Edinburgh at the end of the month. We are still a few missing, but I guess that is normal.

Having worked through to the late afternoon, Mix and I went for a walk. David had called in earlier and had taken my organ away to see if it can be repaired. He left Beth, his dog, and Rachel took her for a walk with Rowan while Mum was getting her hair done.

We all dined together in the farm house and later in the Granary we watched the film 'Anonymous', a thriller based on the theory that Shakespeare’s plays weren’t actually written by him. I enjoyed the film enormously, real political intrigue and quite believable in an unbelievable kind of a way – and it was lovely and warm in front of the fire with snow forecast for tomorrow. And tomorrow could be quite exciting too with the Scorchers (from Perth) in the final of the Big Bash in Australia while, also in Australia India take on England for the right to play Australia in the final of the three-way competition in preparation for the cricket world cup. And Andy Murray is into the semi-final of the tennis – quite fun for the middle of winter.

We walked the dogs and retired to bed. In every way a very good day.
