End of the day happy.

April 13th, 2014 (08:56 pm)

It's been a pleasantly productive weekend, tidying a bit round the house - nothing major, but cracked a couple of things which I've been wanting to sort out for some time. Hoping I'll be a bit on a roll tomorrow. Spent this afternoon at the LGBT Fellowship at Berry Lane Methodist Church - always a lovely bunch of people there. Sally led an interesting chat about the "clobber passages" - those bits of the Bible that are regularly trotted against homosexuality - and why they don't really have anything to say about homosexuality at all. There were some new folks there, Gwyn and I helped lead worship (him on the guitar and me on the piano), Liz and Alli were there with baby Theo (not so much a baby now - he's 16 months and walking. Often in the direction of the main door. Good job it was locked… ^_^ )

Sadly, Sarah's got a bit of neck/headache. :-(

On the other hand, I'm kind of bouncing like a bit of a puppy with happiness because my friend entorien has just posted on Twitter/Facebook that she's just given birth to her (and her wife Lin's) first child, Oswin. (A girl, although Sarah told me that Oswin is a boy's name. Pish and tish, say I...)

Now, debating whether to order a pizza or cook something (the former is more tempting) and stay up for Endeavour, or just head straight to bed…

But yeah, happy.

Oh Dear

Sounds like a good meeting, but oh poor Oswin - Sarah is absolutely right - why not just go the whole hog and call her John or Albert? Sadly, or not, most names are still traditionally associated with one gender.

It's to be hoped she is never drawn to study Anglo-Saxon history.

I like the name Oswin, it reminds me of Fire Emblem. The Oswin from Fire Emblem is male... we think... it's hard to tell under all that armour...
