Vive La Difference (in Luton..!)

Even though it's only Saturday night, the weekend has already been packed to the gunnels with things going on... unfortunately, one of Beth's guinea-pigs, Pogo died overnight - she'd been unwell for a little while, and was finding it difficult to move around.

This afternoon, we popped to Pets At Home to see if we could find another companion for Frisbee, and Beth found Hopscotch - a baby cavy, who is tiny (she's only a few weeks old), but won't be for long!

The weather has been extremely volatile, with gale-force winds and torrential rain overnight and in the morning making the idea of going out somewhat unwelcome. However, the day improved somewhat, and we managed a visit to my Dad's early afternoon - he always has some amusing stories to share! - and this evening, once the children had gone to bed, I was able to pop out to St Thomas's Church in Stopsley (www.stopsleyparish.org.uk).

David Alexander, the vicar there, is certainly adventurous; I first got to know him on Twitter (he's @stopsleyvicar) and heard about his visit to Manila in the Philippines, shortly after the typhoons. Tonight, though, he started another project - a 24 hour sermon, streamed live on Ustream (www.ustream.tv/channel/stopsleyvicar). I stayed for about half-an-hour, and I'm hoping to pop back again tomorrow afternoon, to see if he's still awake! If you have the opportunity (and he's still going!) I'm sure he'd appreciate a tweet!

Tomorrow, we're hoping to go to the official 'switching on' of the Luton Christmas Lights - last Saturday night was the Luton Fireworks.. there's plenty going on at this time of year, and it's only going to get busier!
