I really didn’t want to get up this morning. Not sure why exactly, it’s not like today was going to be a tough day for me, as such, but it’s still quite momentous. Today’s the day we have the interviews for the next Chaplaincy Assistant, who will take over from me in September. So I guess nerves were running high, thinking and praying about it all.

Thankfully I’m not on the interview panel. That would just have been too scary!! I did have an opportunity to have a nice chat with each of the three candidates before their interviews, which was really useful. I was supposed to be taking them on a guided tour of campus, but two of the candidates were internal so knew their way round pretty well! It ended up being more of a pub crawl – the first person I took to the SU Bar (where I had a coke), the second I took to Top Bar (where I had an orange juice), and the third I took to Mondo (where I had a lovely hot chocolate)! I was amazed though just how relaxed each person was, considering they were about to go in for an interview. Just shows how God’s peace can so affect you when he is at work on people’s lives. There was a definite sense that each candidate knew that whatever the outcome was, it would be God’s will, and that would be fine. That’s so reassuring from my point of view, because it so good to know that the Chaplaincy is in good hands, whoever gets the job!

I also can’t figure out quite how I managed to wear these shoes at school. These black shoes are the same ones I wore all through sixth form, and they’re still going strong. Except that now I can’t wear them or walk any distance without my feet hurting!! Must be something to do with the fact that I’ve been wearing trainers pretty much non-stop for the last four years…

Alternatively, it might be God’s way of saying to you – “You need some new shoes” 😉

Sixth Form shoes – I’m glad to see we brought you up to be thrifty!

I have the same problem – it’s definitely the trainers. Now none of my “dress” shoes fit me without pinching. Of course, I just blame it on the big, bad, male conspiracy to keep women confined to hideously tight, ugly and uncomfortable shoes 😛 (naturally, we’re supposed to find these shoes attractive….arg!)
