Dey've all left me ... dey've gone!

Only those readers who are familiar with the Liverpudlian accent for which 1960s UK comedian Tom O'Connor can appreaciste the anguish in the cry of the title of this post. In my case, it's because my family has left for Joburg this afternoon.

My wife already turned on the waterworks during the service this morning, and it took every fibre of my being not to break down myself while standing behind the pulpit! So her hurried peck on the cheek as we got to the station was her valiant attempt at avoiding any more "snot en trane" as we said goodbye.

Afterwards, I left the station and came straight to the office, where I've spent the afternoon reading and blogging. I'm not quite up to facing an empty flat just yet. However, after the Alpha meeting and the evening service, I'm sure I'll be okay. I'll have to be - there's nowhere else for me to sleep...
