I’m waiting!

Very appropriate, seeing as it’s advent! So, it’s Sunday, known as Gaudete Sunday in some circles, Gaudete apparently means rejoice! We missed the mass this morning as we don’t have a working car at the moment. I was a bit disappointed as it’s advent and I was curious to see if the priest wore rose vestments 🙂 But it’s been good here, it’s icy but not snowy. This was when I went to see the chickens this morning.

I’m loving the views at the moment. Just as well really, seeing as we can’t go anywhere else.

Chris has just returned on his motorbike, he’s been to the petrol station to fill it up and bring some spare back. He’s going to have to go back out again to get a bit of shopping too. We’re almost out of milk. Knew we should have got a cow 😀 or a goat…then again, you have to feed them, so maybe not.

Chris in the bright sun!

I must say, I’ll be pleased when we get the jeep repaired. He went his normal way to work yesterday, of which part is a rural back road and he ended up on black ice for a very long stretch (and on a hill) and was thankfully both ok and turned up for work and got home fine later. Just as well he’s a good rider! But yeah, for days like this, the jeep would be good. There is a different way he can go, he just didn’t think of ice being a problem until he hit it. He’s going the longer way tomorrow morning.

It’s a strange feeling not being able to get anywhere again. On lockdown, if you like, but not on Government guidelines, on my own haven’t got any transport thing. The part is meant to be here on Thursday (ish). Duty has already been paid on it, so it hopefully won’t get held up in customs. I’ve got another parcel that’s been there since the 9th November! I am really hoping the car is working before Christmas. Thankyou God for the postal services (and Amazon)! I can’t even get to post the few parcels I still need to post unfortunately. Still, all is well and I’ve decided to enjoy being here until we can get out again.

Chris has just said, ‘you really enjoy writing those blogs, don’t you?’, to which I replied ‘yes, I love writing’. So then he said 😀 ‘why don’t you write a book then and make us shed loads of money’. I said ‘I would if I had any ideas’. 😀

Happy rejoice in Jesus day!
