My first mid week communion for two months this morning brought its own complications...who picks up who etc.
The return to work this week has been slow but gained pace with every new day! Funerals, Christenings, meetings etc have all suddenly appeared in my diary!
This morning I answered the phone twice whilst I was getting dressed and my brain was else where when I went down for breakfast. I actually poured milk into a bowl for my dog until I realised yet again that there was no dog! I have come close to doing it before but this morning was different, my mind was resuming old practices.
The human brain is a creature of habit! All the preparations for the midweek communion are almost second nature now but after a gap of over two months, people had made other travel arrangements so it was essential to sort out who was picking up who and other mundane details!
I am glad to be working again but have started to realise that lthough the spirit is willing, the body is getting reluctant at times!
Having no dog to walk means my legs are losing their muscles! First I lost my cycling muscles, now my dog walking muscles! Where will it end!
If the brain is a muscle, it's still getting quite a lot of exercise....But I fear it's only a matter of time before anno Domini takes that as well!
So be it!
