The Weekend Just Gone
On Friday night my wife and I were proud to represent Wisbech at the Civic Reception in Thetford as Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayoress. The Mayor was a fine host, the event well-organised and enjoyable.
Saturday was busy also as I had several constituents to visit in regards to issues I am helping them with. Then in the evening my Son, Joe Tierney, swam for Wisbech in the Junior Fenland League Gala, taking second place in the Individual Medley and third place in the Breaststoke Under 13s. Given that he is eleven, that was an excellent result, and both races were really, really close! That wasn’t the end of the evening though, since I was out with Citizens’ Patrol on Saturday night (as mentioned in my previous blog post.)
On Sunday I was at the christening of one-year-old Maximillian Balsevics, the young Son of my friend Cllr Aigars Balsevics and his partner Veronica. I have not been to a Christening in a Catholic church before and found it fascinating. The afternoon was taken up by a fundraising garden party organised by Leverington & Gorefield Conservative Branch which was very well-attended and a lot of fun. A few of us camped on a table with punch and salmon and played board games :) I rejoined the Christening celebrations on Sunday evening and had quite a few vodka shots during the course of the festivities. Consequently, this morning, I am more sluggish than usual. ;)
This coming week is absolutely manic. It is wall-to-wall commitments, meetings, functions and work. I don’t think there is even an hour to spare. From Monday night through until the end of the week I am absolutely rammed. Never mind, though, it’s all good!
