|Autumn at Otterburn|
Horsebox drives at half the speed of the car. Reached Otterburn at 10.50 to find that we weren't properly organised for the baptism. The person in charge of the baby's candle and cards for the godparents has tonsilitis. Messages being relayed by third party between non-speaking Rector and computerless baptism visitor have not been entirely successful. Nor is sound-system working properly. Service started late. Baby very good to make up for it all.
Back to Rectory at 1.30 for my fourth meal of soup and yoghurt.
Just time to borrow husband's car (he being back from taking service at Falstone) to drive 17 miles to St Francis church Byrness for the Patronal Festival (St Francis' Day being 4th October) combined with Harvest Thanksgiving and animal service.
