|A grey day in Prague|
The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur but a lot has happened. Last week I was very sad to say goodbye to my friends from New Zealand as they have decided to move back there. This did mean that I was up at 4 driving to the airport! I was sad to see them go, not least since I've lost my rugby buddies.
This month looks like it will be the start of a season of busyness and travel. I expect it to be this way until September if everything happens the way it is planned. As much as I enjoy moving about, being busy and spending time with friends and family visiting me, I do find it difficult when I don't have a set routine. Please pray for me over this time that I will be depending on God and that I won't drop any balls when I have a lot going on.
Last week I had the privilege of visiting a friend in Prague. It did mean spending 10 hours on a bus each way but I can't complain about Slovene, Austrian and Czech countryside. It was lovely to spend time with my friend and getting to know another European city. It was a bit strange for me though because Prague is very similar to Ljubljana. Czech is also very similar to Slovene, this meant that I was able to understand some of the posters on the metro. It was a bit like being in an alternate reality version of Ljubljana!
I'm now starting to think and prepare for my trip back to England next week. I'm back to attend a retreat for ECM Britain workers. I'll also be using the opportunity to visit the church in Swindon on the 19th. Please be praying for safe travels and also for the people I'll be meeting with. This trip will also be an opportunity for me to sit down and talk about plans for my future. This is obviously a subject that needs much wisdom and prayer.

My strange week was compounded by me managing to fall off my bike yesterday. I'm completely fine, just a bit of a bruised hip and ego. It was a very wet day and I took a corner a bit too quickly and my tyres slipped. Thankfully I fell onto grass but I think it must have been quite a spectacular sight, at least I guess so by the way the man and dog nearby came running to check I was ok...
I'm now just praying that my next week won't be quite so eventful!
