Income Tax return!

Tuesday 6th December 2011
  I had to give up quite a lot of the day to filling in my Income Tax return   --  which shouldn't really be difficult since I receive a clergy "stipend" at a standard rate: living in a tied house (the Rectory or for vicars a Vicarage) and having an income that doesn't vary however much we do or experience, we are free to give our lives to our parishioners  --  except on the day that's taken up with collating figures about mileage, expenses and upkeep of the house (i.e. today).  But I did actually go to Greenhaugh First School to take assembly and to West Woodburn First School for their Christmas play, enjoying the drive over snow-covered fells.  In the evening a couple came for the fourth session of marriage preparation .
