It was the final two days at our old school last Thursday and Friday. The Queen wore a skirt to school. With her remaining two pairs of navy tights.

Both mornings she fell over on the way there, ripped her tights and skinned her knees.

I think it may be time to move to a new school.

The Curate is going to become a vicar very soon (10th March is his official start date, since you ask).

This means that we are moving house next week. We’re making the shift at half term to enable the kids to transfer to their new schools without too much of a break. Nanna is kindly taking them to stay with her and Grandpa for most of the week to make things easier at this end. Moving house

So we’re having an odd sort of week. Lots of ‘lasts’ as we say goodbye to friends and parishioners. As I write this the Curate is off visiting some housebound folk to bid farewell.

And I am still feeling like it’s not really happening. We’re moving just eight miles away, only twenty minutes away in the car. But it will be very different.

The Curate is going to be the Vicar. He will have to worry about the drains as well as his sermons. He’ll be responsible for the congregation – the buck will stop with him.

I came out as

ESFP – The Performers

“The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead – they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.

The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation – qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions.”

When I’ve previously done the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator I’ve been an ENFP, so this is pretty close for an instant analysis. I wonder if the site has detected my current preoccupation with vicarage decor and my great desire to avoid planning the house move. It certainly seems to be very much me at the moment!
