Day off today so I went to visit an old friend in Edinburgh. Mike and I used to work in the Rock Trust together and we shared many a giggle together. I have not been very good at keeping up with friends since I got into this ministry malarky (?sp) but I couldn’t miss out on the opportunity to spend an afternoon with a real live author.

Mike has just had his first book published, having won the Kelpies Prize at this year’s Edinburgh Book Festival. See
And you will find his book Catscape on Amazon if you want a cracking good read, or if you know of any children needing a nice Christmas present. Just don’t mention J K Rowling in his company! I nearly did, but the warning look was enough to stop me.

All of which makes me think about this writing of books and the one which I keep threatening to do. My problem is that nobody would believe half of what happens in the daily life of a priest. Sometimes I don’t either.
