Avril at Romsey

… and Lancefield and Riddells Creek and Mount Macedon

Maybe I’m too old for this ministry thing?

Ouch! I’m having real trouble walking today. Whatever those muscles in our thighs are … well, mine have decided not to work. Or, at least, not to work without protest and pain.

I blame Kidz Unplugged. A session is run at the Riddells Creek Uniting Church, and yesterday morning I went down to help. I was fine with the walking and running and twisting and rolling and doing the Hokey-Pokey – but the jumping like a frog? I’m too old for that sort of stuff. And pre- have so much energy.

Over morning tea one of the mothers thanked me for being there. Because spending a couple of hours playing with toddlers and holding a three-month-old until she fell asleep in my arms is such a hardship!

  2. I decided today, after seeing the coffin of a 36 year-old friend lowered into his grave, never to complain about growing old.

  3. Oh well, at least now you can relax and recuperate in the cozy warmth of your ducted gas heating; just the thing to warm up creaky old bones.
