…today has been fantastic..despite waking up to the dreadful news of the Women Bishops vote! As this is supposed to be a wholly positive blog I will not dwell on this.
To start off the day I went to a Cree managers meeting in Peterlee to introduce our new project.The Cree projects are small social set ups around County Durham which encourage men to meet up and socialise , forming community groups. They are all led by committed and enthusiastic volunteers . I was inspired and astounded at the levels of energy and the variety of groups.
…spent a fabulous evening with my husband in Durham Cathedral attending the Blessing of the Recovery Banner. An evenings worship to celebrate the continuing recovery of people with addictions in County Durham. The evening was moving and uplifting as men and women in recovery told their stories. My ex work colleague and pal Dot Turton has initiated and organised this amazing event. Wonderful!
…I returned home to a pile of laminate flooring ! Cool!
