2010:365:253 They weren't joking!

My back wall backs onto the King's Hall Complex.  This is very convenient during the agricultural show when the horses can be viewed from the bedroom window.  However ... 
there can be drawbacks as well.  Twice in the past week we've had letters.  The first came from the King's Hall director and the second from Plantelove 2010.  Both contained a warning.
About an hour ago the rectory foundations began to shake and the windows started to rattle as the music began ... the only comfort is that it is scheduled to stop at 1.00 am so that's only ... six more hours tonight!  Mind you, tomorrow's concert starts at 3.00 pm and goes through to 1.00 am!
The 365Project photograph for today was this little "teapot" - and it really is small!  A tea infuser used from time to time when there's leaf tea around.  The original picture was darker ... this is the comparison. 
There are times when it is worth editing.
The infuser in the background is a turtle, as you might expect!
Using these means you don't have to go hunting for a tea strainer.  
I was going to add a summary of yesterday's Diocesan Synod - but you can get a much better report on the web site if you wish.
My photographs from it are of the beautiful church who hosted us. 
Catching up with one another before the Eucharist, and then again over tea before the business meeting, is one of the useful aspects of this annual gathering. 
The church looked magnificent in the afternoon sunshine and the curate's house is just delightful.
One of the interesting features inside the church are the radiators!  You'd go a long way before finding such attractive metal work.
Now, with the thumping noise filling the house it is hard to focus on anything ... maybe the dog will be in luck as I need to take him for a QUIET walk!

Blessed are you, Sovereign God,
Shepherd of your pilgrim people:
their pillar of cloud by day, their pillar of fire by night.
Stir up in us the fire of your love
which shone forth from your Son enthroned on the cross,
that we may be cleansed of all our sins
and be made ready to come into your presence,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
Blessed be God for ever!

Ha! Ha! I can sympathise with you in regard to the noise.
I enjoyed reading your blog again - always interesting.
