I repent, truly I do.
I will try and jettison my ENFP last minute-ness as soon as I possibly can (once I've done all sorts of other things, of course)...I've just realised that this sort of behaviour has its costs. I'm stuck, and I 've no-one but myself to blame.
I'm confronting the sad, sad situation of a retreat slot booked in the diary, and nowhere to go. In the past, I've been able to arrange a retreat at only a month's notice with no trouble at all, but this time there seems to be a conspiracy abroad.
Llan, my customary haunt, is full till the autumn.
The Franciscan houses I might have tried don't want anyone arriving on a Monday, and as I only have Monday to Thursday free that simply cuts my time too short. The otherwise rather wonderful-sounding Sheldon Community doesn't have the Office and Eucharist happening regularly, which kind of bothers me.
Where should I go?
I want some good walking, a rhythm of prayer going on around me, and the possibilty of processing the experience while I'm there if the need arises...Access to a glass of wine, and a good library might also be nice...Am I being difficult? Any inspiration gratefully received. At the moment, I'm considering going as far as Alnwick,- but that seems a tad dotty for 3 nights.
WHY didn't I book myself in Llan earlier? Must email now to ensure a slot next year....maybe.
