This week saw our church saying goodbye to our rector of 23 years as he has retired. The church was packed for his lovely final service. We are now facing a period with no regular leader, which will be a challenge for the church family.

We have also had confirmation that R has a place at the school I chose in the second round of viewings earlier this month. He is really happy with this, and I am coming around to the idea. Now he just has to get ready for SATS in May. I attended an information evening about them this week, and I realise what a big step up they are from the work R's been doing so far. I only ask that he performs to his own personal best, but I worry that primary school has lower expectations than I do. The amount of homework his class is set has tripled since he went into Year 3 and R is only now getting used to that (as am I!) so I will need to find him a lot more time for private study over the next few months.
I've had various bits of bad news, which I can't share here as they concern other people and also heard that my darling Dad needs to have a prostate operation next week, so I'll be praying hard for all of them. Sometimes it's tough being a grownup!
