Some time ago, I visited the world heritage site of New Grange in Ireland. This amazing Neolithic mound was designed so that the rising sun would shine through a tunnel on Winter solstice day, lighting up the tomb deep inside the barrow. Apart from...

This Sunday, the third in Advent is also known as Gaudete Sunday, a time when we take a break from the preparations for the coming, or second coming, of Our Lord. It is a day on which we rejoice that the Saviour is coming at all, as John the Baptist...

I'm a wee bit sentimental... when I go travel past other people's houses in a car or a bus and I see the windows all lit up by the lights of the Christmas tree inside, I feel warm inside thinking of the idea that everyone is experiencing a...
Christmas cards with good wishes
Then I was in town for a completely different reason and walked past a shop selling exactly the kind of thing she would like. (At least, I hope so!). So I was able to get her a few products which would help her take care of herself, feel nice and...

Harrods at Christmas

Ploughed field
One of the facts they verified was the claim that there are more foodbanks than branches of Macdonalds. Apparently this is true, there really are. The need for foodbanks in our society is a shame upon us all. But I find some comfort in knowing that...
A foodbank or soup kitchen
When I got home I read some of the articles, and found a section which was reviewing 'Christmas sandwiches'. We've all doubtless seen them in shops.The Pret a Manger Christmas sandwiches are so famous that they even have a launch for food writers...
