And moving on

- because that's what you do..... if you don't know what I mean, read the previous post first.

I went to a meeting to represent the PCC* treasurer, who is working in Cornwall this week so thought she might as well have a few extra days, visit the Eden Project and the like. It's an awfully long way to Cornwall and one might as well make the most of it. I thought it was a good idea to go there for the weekend last October; enjoyed it very much but it was a hell of a lot of driving, best part of 1,000 miles for 3 nights stay.

Anyway, the meeting. Very financial. I put my hand up to make a comment. The Deanery Assessor listened politely, replied .... "in short," he finished, "I agree with you." Well, that was good, he is obviously an intelligent man because I wouldn't have said anything unless I was right (hm). And, since the revised, compromise, proposals he came up with took this into account, I probably will have to talk the PCC into paying over more money next year.
I sat next to a chap in a dog collar wearing not only white socks, but jesus sandals too. Yup, together. Pristine, the socks were, so he must have changed them specially for the meeting - a particularly stylish touch, I thought.

I haven't put a list of links to the blogs I read. This is for several reasons.

1. It would be a bit embarrassing to put in everything I ever read as there are rather a lot of them and it would show how much time I spend on this sort of thing.
2. If I just put in a few favourites, I'd be mortified if one of the others I read and enjoy dropped in and found him or herself omitted.
3. Some of the ones I read, so do all of you. I mean, I hardly need to mention Greavsie*** (just as one example), do I.
4. A few are a bit rude.

* the committee that runs the local church, the Parochial Church Council.
** Mind you, I was a Suffolk girl myself until 20 years ago.
*** Sorry Greavsie, can't emulate your stylish ways, so just copy your asterisks.

Linking isn't obligatory, you know! ;) I often think I ought to prune my links, but the truth is that I do read all the sites I link to, sad to say... Explains the PhD progress, or lack thereof, doesn't it?

Glad your commenting doberry is letting me, er, comment, though - ta very much.

I started counting the sites I've bookmarked, but was so struck by how much time I must spend on them that I discreetly decided not to know. In the same way as I haven't weighed myself for years and years, which means I will not worry about it and thus comfort-overeat.

In theory.

And glad to have you back, sorry about momentarily overriding my libertarian instincts; I thought I had only blocked anonymous comments.

How do we know said...

:-) And the reason I have a list of blogs I visit, is so i may come back to them everyday, eithout having to remember the urls! :-)

I couldn't remember them, far too many, so I have them bookmarked.
One day I may admit to the number! So many good writers and interesting people. Even those with whom I might not have much in common are enjoyable to read and give something to think about.
