I told Steve we'd be unhappy for a day if ManU lost, huh, and he said, no, he'd be unhappy for a year... luckily we didn't lose. I do feel for my friend who has become such a Chelsea fan. It's odd, we live here but I grew up in a ManU household and then married into one as well!

I've been really busy. We had Pentecost at Mass yesterday and then First Reconciliation (the old First Confession) at four in the afternoon. That went okay. I try to like the Codfish but he makes me cry every time he speaks. So liking him isn't going so well. Liturgy meeting tonight... watch this space *snort*

I have to go away next weekend to Napier for O'Shea Shield, a big Catholic schools public speaking competition. I wasn't planning to go but apparently the DRS is expected to show up and be counted since it's a Special Character based competition (the drama theme has to be religious, the questions are religious, there is a Scripture Reading contest, that kind of thing - I don't know what the debates will be about yet) so Christy and I might drive up - it's about 4 and a half hours away. As if I don't have enough to do here! I popped home to grab a book on my way to my Maori Spirituality course this morning and there was a message saying the course is half an hour late, so I figured I'd update then go *g* so hi!

*Sigh* I guess I'd better get going. Have to cross town, find a park, walk up the hill to the Mercy Centre... take care, you lot. It's cold and wet here today and looks like it might POUR shortly... I had to ref netball in the pouring rain at 8.15 on Saturday morning. Now that was fun... *shrug* what else would one do? And then I barely dried off and had to rush to my writing course. That was hard, it put me off Breathing Space forever, I suspect, trying to share something that wasn't worked over enough by me first. I don't share well. I shall not be doing that again!

Well, it does sound interesting at least, even if it is a little inconvenient!

Here too! Only it's been pouring all day.

I think that writing is such a personal thing for you, and that's what makes it so hard to share. Just keep on writing, even if you don't want to share it!

The Catholic schools here have an extraordinary standard of public speaking. You'd be amazed at how good the students are at debate, oratory, scripture etc.

You're right, of course. And that's probably why I couldn't write Sam after all the stress with Sam friends. I had to stop. So yeah, I might just keep my writing to myself until it's done. You're a wise bunny!

It’s been beautiful weather here lately, sunny and fairly warm.

Sorry to hear that things with the Codfish are still not too good. Try not to let him get to you too much!

Please, don’t let anything put you off Breathing Space! You write too well to let outside influences affect your writing. Share only when you are comfortable with sharing.

We had a good meeting last night in some ways. I actually asked him if he liked people at all and he really wasn't able to answer that LOL!

I dunno... I'm thinking about it. But thanks. Yeah, I won't be sharing any of that again, that's for sure!

Ian used to coach St Bernard's College for the O'Shea and used to go off to it every year with the team, and an other friend from Toastmasters coached St Pat's (Stream) - lots of memories... Ian always seemed to have a good time there, though I heard a lot about wine and pizza as well as the Competition!!!

I do hope things improve on the church front...

Being a Liverpool girl I struggle with anyone anywhere supporting Man U!!! - but I suppose I'm glad they beat Chelsea.... *g*

Hee. Liverpool still has the record for the most championships won, 18, and we're one behind now, I think! Chelsea has 3.
My brother decided to be a Liverpool supporter. I think he just wanted to be a rebel in the family.

I think eventually they will. Thanks.

O'Shea, yeah, all the old friends meet up. I'm a newbie in that respect, having been out of the Catholic college scene for so long. Wine and pizza sound nice *g*

But of course...!! Liverpool are the Champions!!!! *g*

Wine and pizza sound nice *g* - Always!!

Nah, it's what you can bring to the task, not anything personal. Our HoD Geography does the Scripture Reading, our DP is doing Religious Questions, our AP isn't Catholic and she's doing the junior Prepared Speech... it's great to have all the jobs shared around. And no one is actually relying on me *g*

Liverpool were the champions. Now we are *g*
I always think of that Cracker episode with the mad Liverpool fan, humming L-i-v, e-r-p, double-o, l, Liverpool FC.

Just a temporary blip!!

I love that story... it's horrible, and yet that's so true to the facts, Hillsborough must have been one of the worst things that ever happened in British football, or to Liverpool as a whole if it comes to that.
