HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! And thanks to all those who posted messages on Facebook 😉
I’ve been fortunate enough to have three rather nice early birthday presents this year. First off was seeing Bloc Party at HMV Oxford Circus. I initially thought entrance to the gig was for a lucky few who had queued for hours in the early morning, but found that I could just pitch up! So at six on Monday evening I was enjoying a half hour set from one of my favourite bands for free!
My brother Phil then popped over during the week to deliver a bike I’m buying off him, plus some very nice lights and locks to complete the set. Hooray for good presents!
And finally, to finish off the early treats, I popped to a whisky bar in London, recommended by Phil, at the five star Athenaeum Hotel just near Green Park. After investing in a wonderful glass of Port Ellen 25yr old Islay whisky I felt considerably poorer financially, but all the richer for the experience. Carla and Charlotte lapped up the ambiance – and and extremley nice cocktail – with me.
36 has been a good vintage. 37 starts with a great meal at home with Shirley this evening!
So, more on Norway soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d drive some more traffic to a project I’ve been working on for 24-7 over the last few months, called ’24-7 Shorts’.
This amazing set of mini documentaries tell the story of some of the things God is doing through the movement at the moment, and have been produced to a really high standard by a friend of 24-7 in the States. So, check out the first instalment here, or head on over to www.24-7shorts.com at your leisure!
