See previous post!
Not working in the past week has included:
1 home communion
1 bereavement visit
visit to lovely elderly people
2 midweek communion services
2 baptism visits
2 Lent lunches
1 middle school assembly
2 first school assemblies
1 school lunch time club
family service planning meeting
1 marriage preparation visit to fill out banns form
chaired 1 PCC meeting plus all the attendant admin
2 Sunday services plus sermons
a meeting at first school to plan Easter service and assemblies for next term
a coffee morning (where I discovered retired priest was in hospital, why am I the last to know?)
a meal out with the ladies from WI (yes this really is work, I wouldn’t be going for fun)
a difficult staff meeting with boss
lunch with retired clergy to keep them feeling in the loop.
Tomorrow I have to chair a benefice treasurers meeting, ring a church heating engineer, do school lunch time club and in the spaces sort out two non eucharistic (always takes a bit of time when there is no liturgy) mothering sunday services plus write sermons and prayers and do a hospital visit. Saturday I am going to some CMD training in the diocese. Then on Sunday we’ re back to the beginning again.
So. I am clearly not working.
