Nairn

I was up in Nairn on Sunday, leading worship and enrolling John into the Pilots company there.  Unfortunately the enrolment service had been organised for the school holidays so the 6 other new Pilots were on holiday!  John was great and we got to wave to his mum who was watching from the balcony!

It was great to meet with some people I’ve met at Synod and to meet face to face with others I’ve spoken to on the phone or by email.  It looks like I could be going back regularly!

We also had the chance to see my sister Jillian, hubby Scott, their two boys Calum and Ewan and Jillian’s growing bump.  Ben and Jack came with us and were delighted to see their cousins!  Avril managed to pop over to see her pal Jane and her fiance John in Inverness while I was at church.  I joined them for a quick lunch later.  It was good to catch up and to see Jane looking so happy!

It’s a long way but it was well worth the 450mile round trip to see everyone!

  1. Hi Stewart! I’m not surprised to read that you might be going back regularly. I think you will be in great demand with your inspiring and uplifting sermons 🙂

    We’re just back after three weeks in China, where our elder son, Michael, and his wife were having the Tea Ceremony and Banquet part of their Chinese nuptials. It’s great to be back though. As interesting as it was, east, west, home’s best.

    Come on over for a visit to the Barleycorn garden. The latest post is mainly pictures. If you enlarge them with Ben or Jack, they might like to look for the banded-snail hiding in a flower, or the slug on Mr Hedgehog. It’s not only people who carry their pack lunch on their back 🙂
