starting to settle

I'm finally in the house that i'll be in for the whole year!
i arrived here on sunday evening after my last meal with Karen and Mark. it was very sad. i really had a great time with them and I really was sad to leave. but here I am in Etwall (MILES from burton.. which forces me to get the bus every morning)
it's not the end of the world, but it's a bit of a chore as it means that i have to be tied to leaving burton at either 51 past or 17 past.
(on sunday's there's one bus every TWO HOURS! (what's that about!))

Saturday was a GREAT day...
Abi and Emma came down from Ashby (where they're volunteering with YFC) and came to see us "burton boys" for the day.
It was a really nice day out. we went for a meal, then went to play pool, then we just sat around and talked for a while. it was good times ad it was really nice to see them both again.

So on Sunday... we did hand painting!! with FOG for the little 60 second film that we're putting together. it was relitavely successful but probably could've worked better.. but still. it was a good laugh.

Monday... we had team meetings and went through our book again. then i had french club with Sue which was quite nice.. we played lotto (bingo) which seemed to be a success. after this, on monday evening we had the Burton Youth For Christ AGM!
it wasn't as bad as it could've been, but still insuferably dull!
we talked (i say we.... a few people talked at the rest of us) for about 30 minutes.. and we had to vote on things that it seemed that we had no reason to know anything about.
after this... there were some performances by groups of young people that BYFC have been working with over the past year. some of which were really good. other's were... not so great.. but it was quite good fun all the same. Matt, Tom and I were then "interviewed" by selina where we had to say where we were from, what our names were and an interesting fact about myself.

tuesday was CoPE then Drama (Pandoras Box) which was more successful than it was the last two weeks.
