Home again

After a couple of weeks away at Relay 3, wedding, honeymoon and then a couple of residential team days with the UCCF North West team, I'm back at my desk in Lancaster.

Here are a few things I didn't know when I last wrote on this blog (ordered in date of discovery!):

1. The book of Proverbs is much less dry and full of many more things to discover than I had previously thought (thanks Mo).
2. Trying to get your Relay Workers from your region to lie down in a 'NW' shape is surprisingly hard, surprisingly time-consuming and unsurprisingly not that worth it.
3. A wedding rehearsal is far more stressful than an actual wedding ceremony!
4. Wedding days need to be about ten times longer than they actually are if you are to have a hope of speaking to anything like half of those who attend them.
5. It's wonderful having all of your friends and family from all parts of life together in one place.
6. Dublin has more than six hundred churches and nearly one thousand pubs.
7. The Chester Beatty Papyrus, one of the oldest fragments of NT Scripture and kept in the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin, is so vast that most of it has yet to be catalogued.
8. Gaelich hhas farh thoo mhany shilenth 'h'sh.
9. The Blackpool area actually looks quite beautiful from the air.
10. Stephen Harbage is perhaps the only person in the world who is as competitive as me at the esteemed game of 'spoons'.
