The Stay Safe Board / Re: Diary, week ending 31st July

Yesterday was the first time the children at my church were seen since March 2020. I take the children and yesterday they took the service which was based around the story of David and Goliath and trust and the need to practise. I was so proud of them. The eldest two aged almost 7 and almost 8 controlled the service and did all the readings. The other 4 aged 3, 3, nearly 6 and 41/2 all took part. The baby brother of one child slept through the service! Two teenagers have come back to help and were wonderful I donít know how I managed before.

I was able to sing in the choir again which I enjoyed. Iíd taught the children to sign the chorus of ďGive me joy in my HeartĒ and the congregation joined in with great gusto. I was shattered last night as Iíd not had much sleep on Saturday night or the nights before, at 2am I was making David a catapult and thinking of my short address to the congregation.

Iíve actually began thinking about my family history again. Iíve not been able to settle to it all despite having been stuck in for months and months as one of the ďextremely vulnerableĒ. Iím slowly getting back in the mood but itís very slow!

PS most of the congregation were wearing masks, everyone was socially distanced except for the children. I didnít wear a mask to allow for anyone to lipread me and because I was moving about from lectern, to choir to next to the children my glasses steam up and I canít see! Normally with the children all the grown ups wear masks but not the children. The children did get a clap from the congregation.

The 1713 marriage was by licence. The licence is available to view on FindMyPast, you need to look under the category of Cheshire Marriage Licences and allegations.

You might find these free sites useful, the first one you have already been given but I wanted to add the info about where to look  look under North Meols and Southport

Also the free search on the GRO website

Brown Edge was just a few houses just over the Southport border in Scarisbrick, I suspect they would be living on one of the properties actually on Southport Road as the alternative Turning Lane appears to be named on the 1911 Census forms. I live in Birkdale so next time I go that way Iíll take a look. I might even have a nose round Churchtown when it cools down a bit!

For the moment I have no idea where Blown Out Lane is! I did wonder if it could be Blowick Lane.

I hope youíll feel better soon Roobarb.

I shall continue wearing a mask indoors or crowded outdoor situations (not that I go anywhere particularly crowded!) as Iíve done when I was allowed out after long bouts of shielding. I see many shops are asking people to continue to wear masks. I canít see our so called ďfreedomĒ lasting long.

Iím at the hospital this afternoon Iím expecting them to still be insisting on masks being worn. Iíll be wearing mine. I was going to walk there but as itís so hot I might drive to the garden centre nearby and walk from there!

Candleflame I hope your husband gets an emergency dental appointment and gets sorted out quickly, toothache is horrible.

Itíll be the first census my parents will appear on and although I know where theyíll be itíll be interesting to see them.

Could this be Sarah in 1891?
10 Cripplegate Oswestry
Sarah Adams wid 50
Nellie Adams dour 14
John Adams son 11
Tom Adams son 9
Annie Adams dour 6
David Adams son 3
Mary G Peters granddaughter 4 could this be the daughter of Oswald Peters who is presumably Sarahís son from her previous marriage? Or did she have other children from her first marriage?
All born Oswestry

Just typed a couple of paragraphs and then realised it wasnít allowed as it was too medical so hope this version is OK.

Mid June given pain relief stick on plasters, wonderful pain free for first time from May 2019
Last Friday came out in rash in area of plaster, leaflet said common lasts a few hours
Still there Monday, ring GP at 8.30 in queue for 20 minutes, said I needed to see GP, no canít do that. GP will ring you
11.45 GP rang come to surgery at 12.15 turns out Iím allergic to the plasters
Get home have coffee go to Chemist for prescription
By now itís 2.15 ring Hospital speak to Consultantís Secretary, she will add a note to my notes, consultant on holiday, next appointment in August.
By 3.30 Iím exhausted in pain and upset and I went to bed with a coffee. Didnít do much got the next couple of days.

Now Iím wondering
How come I can go to the hospital to see a consultant, go to the hospital for blood test and scans see the dentist, see the optician but I canít see a GP without jumping through so many hoops? I was the only person in the waiting room.

Rash is slowly going, I feel less tired but very, very fed up that the only thing that works Iím allergic too. Am I surprised? not really just fed up after all Iíve gone through since January 2019.

After that moan Iím going out for a walk, Iíll have a coffee out.
