Finger Carving?

This evening was supposed to be organised by Tim, however James stepped-in and took over to ensure everything went ahead (thanks James). We were also supposed to be “finger painting and vegetable printing” but I didn’t spot anyone brave enough to get their fingers dirty. Steph started by carving a carrot into the shape of a pencil and used it to draw instead. Some of the vegetables were carved and used to print patterns, and some were just carved in order to make a mess. Everyone was slightly distracted tonight by the attendance of Steph’s friends Andy and Rachel (who will be remembered by those to came to H3 last year). Andy was determined to lose his fingers whilst carving vegetables and not concentrating – I didn’t think I’d have to do a risk assessment for painting!

We were also joined this evening by Rob Ciantar, Development Officer for the West Anglia Battalion, who decided to drop in for a surprise flying visit (along with his fiance, Michelle).

Steph cleverly linked devotions in with the theme of the evening, reminding us that whatever picture we paint of ourselves to our friends and family God sees through it. We listened to a worship song and were encouraged to reflect on what she’d said.

We closed the evening with a game of French Cricket – but it didn’t quite go to plan. Andy was too interested in Flic and couldn’t really catch the ball (or do much else really). There was some disasterously dangeous bowling at times, and James played a few lethal (but perfectly legal) shots which sent Ali screaming into the corner of the hall. Perhaps we should try Unihoc again next week.

Those of you who have been here before and are even remotely observant will realise that the website has changed. It is in fact a completely new website with newer and better technology [the old site is still available here]. I won’t bore you with all the details (unless you ask), but you can now comment on each of the weekly updates (if you so desire). I have transferred all the updates from September 2006. There are still some minor techie bits to be worked out (e.g. how to manage the caption competitions) but I’m sure you’ll be patient. You don’t need to update your bookmarks as the old address will forward you here.

I have created an Amicus Flickr account to store the future photos. If you’re a member of Flickr, add “Amicus Bletchley” as a contact to keep up to date with the latest pictures. If you own a digital camera or cameraphone and you’re not yet a Flickr member, why not?!

Next Week: February 14th – Valentines Day – come to Amicus for a special evening of Fancy Dress Speed-Dating. Invent your own character and dress up accordingly, then be “in character” for an evening of speed-dating. Come along and see how Flic and Andy are getting on ;o) Contact Ali for details…
