Met an ordinand and Wife.  Ordinand was told by tutor at Theological college that Ecclesiastical robes have no meaning!!!! Should I start a petition for the tutor to be retrained???

Received devastating news about a friend in the Highlands.

Mini tiff with the Mhinisteir.  He thought I should be in bed resting and I disagreed!

Thursday 31 October 2019.  

The oil tank has finally been topped up!

A friend who lived in Scotland has sadly passed away.  Need to write to his widow when the funeral is over.

November already? Where has the time gone??? The Mhinisteir kindly topped up my pay as you go phone.  Apparently, normal people don’t use pay as you go!!!!!

Long Skirt & Nightie

Recently, the Mhinisteir was in conversation with a fellow colleague.  They were both due to participate in a special service elsewhere in a few weeks time. The Mhinisteir asked the other Vicar which Ecclessiastical robe he should be using to which the other Vicar replied ” Mhinisteir, I don’t know the proper names for these robes!!! It is the long black skirt followed by the white mini nightie that you put on top “!!!! The other Vicar was of course referring to the Cassock and Surplice!!
