Certainly an improvement on yesterday, which saw the foundation of my first anti-fan club — ‘I Disagree with Alastair Roberts’ — started by my little brother on Facebook. He obviously has far too much time on his hands.

Meet the PuritansToday I had a brief visit from my sister-in-law and another friend. It is always great to meet up with friends after being away from them for a while and to catch up on news from home. Among other things they delivered some things from home — a computer game and a parcel that had come for me. The parcel contained a book from Joel Beeke. I had the great privilege of working for a month with him in Grand Rapids back in 2003. I spent much of the time researching for a book that Joel Beeke was working on at the time. I had almost forgotten about it, but the book that he sent was a complimentary copy of the work, Meet the Puritans. I even get a mention in the preface, which, unless I am mistaken, is the first time that my name has found its way into a published work. From the brief time that I have taken to look at it, the finished product looks like a very useful reference volume for anyone who is interested in the Puritans.

The evening we had a very tasty Chinese takeaway meal. We hardly ever order takeaway, so it was nice to take a break from cooking for an evening. We followed the meal with a long game of Settlers of Catan, which I spend far too much time playing at the moment. I am feeling like finishing the evening with some knitting, a short DVD and a small glass of port.
