I know, I know. There’s been an appalling lack of writing recently. But for once I have a good excuse. Three weeks from today I will have celebrated my final mass at Old Saint Paul’s, will have said goodbye to amazing people who have guided me through the last three years, and will probably wake on the Monday morning feeling a bit rough in all kinds of ways.

So instead of blogging, this is what has been occupying my time and energy:

the to do list from hell
rental agreements, inspections, registration, mortgage nonsense -- all to rent our our flat

The IMPOSSIBLE task of sorting which books are coming (can you tell what belongs to whom?)

I hope to be back to blogging soon, but I can’t make any promises. We’ll be moving from Edinburgh back down to the Borders for a couple of months, and then are likely to move to Israel at some point early-/mid-November. And some time in between the two moves, we hope to be in Israel/Palestine for a couple of weeks at least while I do more intensive language study. So, dear ones, if you are the praying sort, please pray for me, for Justin, for all around us loving and supporting us during this time of massive transition.
