Yesterday we had a "fans of June" gathering in Leeds. There were a number of folk who would have liked to have come but distance made it impractical. However a group of eight met and June was delighted. We had lunch together and those who could stay on went for a curry in the evening: after all, you can't come to Leeds and not take advantage of Asian cuisine. Saintly Ramblings, Themethatisme, Goran (ALL THE WAY FROM STOCKHOLM) and Erika, together with various blogging widows were in attendance. This morning June went to choral Eucharist at Leeds Parish church and Goran came to St. Luke's where he was pressed into action to do the readings.
The D.P. clan said our goodbye's to June after lunch today and then this afternoon June rang.
Her purse has turned up!
She answered a knock on her hotel room door to be greeted by a man who introduced himself as a taxi driver. He had been cleaning out the cab and had found the purse (wallet) under one of the seats. All the cash was intact. She now plans a little spending spree at Manchester Airport's duty free.
"What a way to finish the trip!" she said.
So, safe journey June and bon voyage.
She flies a little before midday local time and has her train times sorted and a taxi booked.
Please pray for an uneventful and straightforward journey.
