short background, i am seperated, ex is still a witness, but very weak, all my family and his very devout, i allow my younger brother to come once a week to study with my two boys 11+12.
which you might think is nuts, but i want more than anything to give them choice, and not to be in direct opposition to their father or other family.
youngest son is a nightmare in the study..lol.

can anyone help me find the link to the wt 2005 cd, i've been reliably informed it's on the site somewhere for download,
i asked my little brother and he got all interested and asked which article i wanted to look at and he could bring round the files if i wanted..lol
didn't like to tell him somehow my 2005 wts ended up in a garden bonfire, not sure how they got there!!!!

so... i haven't stepped foot in the hall for about 6 months and have had my 'invatation' to the memorial.
i had previously decided that i would go if asked, to make my family happy etc.. now i dont know what to do, because if i dont go, it's clear to them i am not half hearted about this and have made my decision.
one side of me almost is interested to go, to see everything from a new light and i have two children who still attend intermittently and i want to be the one to take them if they are going.

i think i have had a sign from heaven!
i am decorating my lounge and decided to move the small supply of wt books up to the loft, as lots of them belong to my ex and he might want them.

a sister sent me this link via email, and i found it threw me all over again.
i just dont know what to think about the whole blood transfusion issue.. it's a nhs site.. (for us etc, thats government health, not witness related at all) and seems to be backing up totally the wt thing about blood being dangerous.. i want some other opinions, it's one jw belief i dont know what to think about!.

so last night we had the last book study at our house, next week all the congregations change around and i asked for it to be moved.
so i sat in on it, and afterwards we had a bit of a 'party'.
felt quite emotional really, although i haven't answered for a long time i put my hand up to read a scripture just so i could mark the last time i did this.

hubby just got back from the meeting, they have put a list up of new groups and who is going where.. so rather than try and remember it he took a picture with his phone camera.. the presiding overseer then calls.. says hi to me, but that's it (has said nothing else to me since i stopped going) and asked to be passed on to hubby.
then told him he must delete the picture because it was against data protection.. i am very familiar with data protection laws in the uk and know this story was utter rot, so think that asking hubby to delete the picture might be something to do with me not seeing it... am i just being paranoid!!!

feeling pretty smug.. a couple of months ago i cancelled my dd to the society.
i have since been waiting to be struck by lightening, but as that hasn't happened, and i do feel i want to donate something, but wanted this time to think more carefully about it.
today i decided on my charity and set up a dd.

hubby has just come back from the service meeting where they have been handed out brand new style blood cards, now called 'advance decision to refuse specified medical treatment' .
it's quite a bit different.
and has the line on it about giving permission to the hospital liason committee to see your notes and medical records.. very scary stuff i think, and i certainly wont be filling one in.. i'm really short of time tonight, but will scan it in, along with the notes that go with it and try and post it some time over the next day or so if someone else doesn't beat me to it!.
