Ramble for Kirwan Uniting Church Keeping in Touch pew sheet 18 September 2022
So today, as I type this, is Leisa’s and my wedding anniversary. It was a mad mad wedding weekend in 1990. I landed in Brisbane from UK on Friday morning, we went straight downtown to buy our rings (we had been apart, Leisa in Australia, me in UK, for months, this was our first ring-shopping opportunity.) Then to church to rehearse a solo, Bach’s “Jesu, Joy” with the organist, Leisa’s aunt, because I was to sing at Leisa’s sister’s wedding the next day, Saturday. Leisa in the meanwhile was doing what chief bridesmaids have to do to help her sister prepare. Then Saturday, her sister’s wedding. Then Sunday, our wedding - Leisa’s sister was matron of honour. Wednesday, we flew back to UK. Phew. We’re barely getting over it 32 years later.
