Wonderful leaving do at St Peter’s last night. We gathered together in a packed church with all my friends and ecclesiastical neighbours. Lovely, flattering and I’m sure undeserved, words were spoken and gifts were given: a beautiful print of Linlithgow Cross, a memory book of my time here (the best!), a generous cheque and other wee gifts. There was a fabulous cake with purple icing and a very funny story to go with it.
Such a wrench to say goodbye to so many wonderful people.
