Spoke to the lovely Dorle on email today and realised that my blog isn't very helpful for finding out what exactly I do with my life. It's mostly the edited highlights of my week and stuff that strikes me that I want to share. Sven calls me a life editor... I edit everything unsavoury and focus on the positive. Probably very true. So for one day only here it is; my life, unedited...
I woke up this morning reluctantly. As a teenager I never really struggled with early rising, probably because I got up at 6.30am to wash and straighten my hair (thank God I've left that madness behind me!). Unfortunately the older I've gotten the harder it's become so this morning was a minor miracle when I dragged myself our of bed at 8.45 (shocking isn't it!). I had a little luxury because I was getting a train at 10 to travel to Guildford.
9.50 I arrive at Chi station and have enough time to grab a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich - there is a God and he loves me!
10ish I got on the train and wrote in my journal.
11.30 I arrived in Guildford and decided to try and walk from the station and save my pennies by not getting a taxi... I felt reckless. I am very proud of myself because once I started walking I remembered the way at each turning. I have a fairly good visual memory and my own two feet are my favourite form of transport...
I had a lovely lunch with Pete Ward, Phil Evans and Cally G in Ian Nicholson's 'other office' (or the pub as it's better known) and we talked logistics of transmission booking systems. (Rather good looking Italian behind the bar;) I won't bore you with the details but I will say click here and find out what I'm working on. It's going to be amazing!
13.13 I jumped on the train back to Chi and worked on some iam5 stuff and chatted to my Mum.
15.00 Got into the 24-7 office, had a cup of tea with Michaela and attacked my emails. They included enquiries about 24-7 Prayer from Indonesia and America, and registrations for prayer rooms in the UK, Germany and the States. I received 5 emails from people wanting to know more about IAM5 (the other v exciting 24-7 event I'm helping organise - join the mailing list at email@example.com), 3 emails from good friends wanting to catch up, 2 joke emails from 24-7ers and 1 email about a story www.salon.com has written on 24-7. Oh the high powered life I lead.
The rest of the day is looking like this... I'm gathering things to bring to the States (leaving Sunday, v excited), sorting out international prayer room support over Christmas, sending our first iam5 mailing list email, writing blurb for Transmission publicity and planning my 'to do' list in the states and beyond...
Later I want to catch up with the lovely Helen Monkton whom I love and miss dearly because we are two of the busiest people I know. Finish making my Christmas presents for my friends and family and start packing for my trip.
See I have a pretty average life really, now you know the truth!
