See? Romance isn't dead.

This was the theme of the wedding we went to in Week 30. You've got to love a couple with a wry sense of humour.

My feet on the Olympic track, London, after running 5 miles in the Anniversary Run. This was definitely a highlight for week 29, if not for all of 2013. Amazing.

A day of miracles: Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, getting nine people to church on time, a beautiful sunny summer day (after a very soggy spring), and a ray of sunlight streaming through the church windows to shine on (only) me during Thing One's confirmation.

As the Steve Miller Band once sang, "Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin' into the future."

This week I was reminded more than once how quickly time flies. Our 13-year-old is heading off for a week with his class for a trip to France, while our 10-year-old moved up to the highest swimming level after taking lessons non-stop since he was 18 months old. It seems only yesterday that both of them were toddlers with a headful of curls running around whenever possible.

They'll be leaving for university before I know it if I'm not mindful of the time we've got together.
