Day 64 – Thu 3 Nov – Of all the things I irrationally dread, my tax return is probably at the top of the list. I spent the day trawling through receipts and looking at bank statements. I’m so incompetent when it comes to this sort of thing, it’s humbling. I met with Natalie our church intern this morning to talk through ministry, and managed half hour knockabout of tennis with Andrew one of my elders which I really enjoyed. This afternoon was more of the tax return drudgery and I’m nowhere near finishing it.
An old friend of ours from Grove Chapel days came over after Claire got back from the kids club and it was a real delight to see her again. She is a model of cheerfulness in the midst of difficulties and added to that is great fun.
