Alton Webteam: March 2017
I'm trying to get this done in time to catch the Newsletter to wish everyone a Happy Easter. Thank you to all those who sent Christmas wishes and their news, it's lovely to keep up with what's going on in friend's lives.
We have a new Minister, she is very nice. I think she is finding Horncastle Methodist Church a bit of a challenge but has a new Steward — no not me I'm still praying for guidance — the new one thinks he'll just step down at the end of his (unspecified) stint ........ He is getting a grip on some of the admin stuff and initiated getting a dishwasher — only small and not on a par with yours but it will be an improvement — hopefully.
Dave is still working part-time in the Co-Op — which gets him out of the house — people greet him on the street and I've no idea who they are. The railway layout boards are finally beginning to be assembled — Dave doesn't rush at anything.
Our grandchildren are growing up fast; Willow is now 6 and somehow without realising how it happened has some activity on most days. Archie is almost 2 and a proper little boy. Frances finds it fascinating how different he is — although Willow is still the one who gets filthiest and looks very urchin-like a good part of the time!
I'm still volunteering at AgeUK Lindsey but have spent the best part of this year, so far, painting the house — garden is calling now though.
Thank you to everyone who prayed for my Mum, she has been given her first 4 month check-up, and the all clear, to look at her you'd never think she'd had anything done.
Well won't take up all your newsletter with my chuntering on.
Love and God's blessing on you all
from Wendy and Dave Turner.
