On seeing old friends

Birmingham!

So, the first visit home happened last weekend, and it was fantastic! Short but packed full of fun times. And it reminds me how much I miss you all – it’s so easy to settle into conversation and into being yourself with all of you, and it’ll take some time to find a similar bunch of people here. Anyway.

Here’s some photographic highlights:

Christmas Play Practise

I got to watch the practise of this weekend’s Christmas play – it’s gonna be sooo good! Favourite parts – ‘No, no, no, NO, NO!’ and ‘Sebastian? I ate him too. And Nemo!’

Bacon Chicken, Cheese and Vegetables

Then dinner a la Mandy and Helen, a-MAZ-ing. Great food (bacon, chicken, cheese – what else could you want?!), great conversation (Chrissy, Rebecca, Helen, Mandy), awesome carol-singing times… I miss times like this.

Someone was becoming too interested in my food…

And then there were the baptisms on Sunday – the very things I came up to see!

Chrissy: “Do you like flowers?” E: “No, not really…”

Me and the Lord Jesus are working on the temper, Alan…

And then there was iD. One word: Nuts.

The weekend was rounded off with dinner one more, this time a la Marilyn. C’etait trés incroyable. (I have a feeling Chrissy will comment on my French, ‘avec les corrections’.)
