A varied weekend

On Friday Catrin was ill. A kind of undefined cold/flu seasonal illness.

On Saturday afternoon Gwilym developed a tummy bug.

Catrin bounced back to life on Saturday but Gwilym is not yet restored.

Meanwhile Saturday night was the Chinese group at Pessac (in French -> Mandarin),
Sunday morning the French service at Anglade and
Sunday evening the English service at Cenon.

It's great, but you have to keep your wits about you.

One weakness of the trombone and the flute is that they are not all that useful for accompaniment.
The Chinese have a good keyboard player and two violinists
but at Anglade and in Cenon we sang unaccompanied albeit with gusto !

Also we don't yet have heating at the church because the reversible aircon units are to be installed on the walls above the toilets, and we don't yet have walls above the toilets. Not only that but the circuit installed to the wall-sockets isn't tripped enough to run electric heaters. So yesterday morning they did a lot of resetting trips while last night we met in the Sunday School room which is adequately heated by a convector on the wall.

We are hoping deeply to have heating installed before the 11 December as this is the English Service Christmas Special. We'll see...
