In a few minutes Jane is going away for a spouses weekend organised by Seite (unsurprisingly enough) it is for the spouses of the ordinands and student minsters on the course. This is her 3rd and last one of these weekends.

1 son to a football birthday party, another to join a band as drummer

another needs new football socks (I doubt Sports Soccer will let me buy
just 1 to replace the lost one).
