We had a bit of a ‘do’ – what they’d call in Ireland a ‘thrash’ – or maybe a wake – for members of the Cathedral Chapter last night. We’re losing Bob Gillies and David Campbell, borrowed by the Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney and by Fettes College respectively. We’ll miss them.
Poppy thought better of it and moved two doors down to Blogstead Emeritus for the evening. She finds it more sedate down there and they seem to have more time for her.
We took the opportunity to run the annual Chapter Scrabble Competition – this year on a Cranmerian theme. I thought the Precentor had a particularly smug look in his eye as he put ‘indifferently’ right across the board for a killer score.
