2012.02.12 My Day

In all consciousness I have not been able to settle to anything today bearing in mind my appointment at the local Spiratualist Church at Harris Street in Peterborough.  I tried to keep myself occupied and made my first light wholemeal loaf today which finished about 15 minutes before I went out this afternoon and I was busy trying to extricate the pan from the bread machine before I left.

In the meantime I was nervous, and very anxious and I had a dicky tummy as a result; call it butterflies, stage fright I was certainly wound up and needed to ground myself and calm me down.  I grabbed some Tchai Green spiced tea from the cupboard and had a couple of mugs full which helped settle down my tummy. I also put my Oms CD on and listened to that; I find that very calming as it reverberates through my system like a highly strung tuning fork.  .

My friends, my support team came to collect me at 2.40p.m.   I was introduced to madam chair and I explained that it was my first time up speaking and giving readings in a church.  I had already gone prepared with an idea of what I wanted to speak about, but just needed confirmation as to the format of a divine service never having been to one or dealt with one before.  There was an opening where I was introduced by madam chair to the congregation; there was then the first hymn, an address by myself where I spoke about the inner voice a reading another hymn then a prayer another hymn and then an hours mediumship, closing hymn and then closing prayer.  Then everyone applauded; very unusual as it turns out as normally on a Sunday divine service there is no clapping; but they wanted me to have feedback and encouragement that I had done well for my first time out and I am to be invited back it would seem.  Lovely people and I enjoyed my first time out, despite the nerves.  I have also been given a little memento of the occasion by my Teacher, mentor and dear friend a little book of sayings of White Eagle entitled "The Quiet Mind" which I intend to read over the next few days.  Thank you dear friends for being so supportive.  

When I got in I went over to see Mr Tiddles, feed him and settle him down; his mum is coming home this evening after a weekend in London.
In the end I did not cook the roast pork as it was 5.00 p.m. when I got in; OH said he wasn't really hungry (we had had a good fry up with the white home made bread I made yesterday - it has come out well and I am pleased with it.

For tea though OH had cheese on toast and I had cheese sandwich made from the first light wholemeal loaf I made earlier today;  I prefer brown bread anyway but this was really tasty even though the loaf was quite as big as the white bread it has gone down a treat. The cheese sarnie was perked up together with some of my home made apricot chutney which is absolutely delicious; I can see that chutney being used very quickly.

I must go OH is chuntering about the animals of the household, Missy the Jack Russell is in bed for a change and fast asleep on top of the stairs, is Squeak.  Normally this is Missy;'sperching point and OH has had to limbo down the stairs as Squeak has been well and truly sprawled; when he has gone into the bathroom to wash his hands; he couldnt as Demetri was sprawled in the sink fast asleep!  Its about par for the course in this household!

I am very tired and I hope to get a good nights sleep as I have a busy week ahead.

Its been a very good day
Hope it has been for you too

Take care
