Mum and I drove down to Bundanoon today and were the Tonks’ first visitors in their new parish. They’ve already settled in well to their huge, bright rectory, and all their stuff looks just right there. Nathaniel didn’t seem at all fazed by us being there and although a little stand offish at first, after a while he even asked me to play X Box with him. I enjoyed cuddles with Bethany too.
We bought a yummy quiche at the local bakery, partook of Jeremy’s excellent coffee, and had a lovely afternoon with our fine friends. The drive was easy and the landscape already autumnal, with a crispness to the air that was almost delicious. We hope and pray that their ministry will bear much fruit, and that they will be happy in their new home.
