The Weekend of 3rd & 4th January 2015

We had a nice quietish Saturday, and I spent a fair bit of time organising a youth choir we are having at our church Stake Conference in a month.

Scott cleared a load of wood from the old shed base, so that we could move the trampoline into its permanent place, and Harry and Jack started chopping up scrap wood into more manageable pieces. I could hardly bear to watch them with the axes, but we've taught them to be as safe as possible, and I just need to let them get on with stuff.

Had a nice roast beef dinner, and in the evening Scott and I bought a treadmill online. I have been running about twice a week since the beginning of October, and Scott wants to start again, plus Lucy, Jack and Tom all go out running reasonably frequently. With the cold weather though, I haven't been for a couple of weeks, and buying a treadmill is something we've toyed with on and off for a while, so we bit the bullet and went for it. I'm quite excited!!

On Sunday, we left home at 7.15am (though it took us a while to de-ice the car) and drove to Chelmsford for church. It was lovely seeing lots of Scott's old friends! Matt and Kim McIntyre, Roger and Sasha Spoors, Debbie and Colin Stewart, the Futters, some of the Faggs etc, plus Keely Watling, Scott's cousin who we were spending the rest of the day with. (Grant, her husband had to be in a different ward.)
Had a lovely roast dinner (which Chloe did most of), and we bought up two Banoffee Pies and Brownies, then people played Cheat!

Elliot's hot chocolate mug.

Harry realising that I was taking photos, and he'd been 'got'!

Keely and Grant's 6 kids + our four. I really like the Watling kids - they're lovely!

Just like this one because of Lucy!

Me, Scott, Keely and Grant. We had a lovely time just chatting for ages, then headed home at about 7.30pm.
