A bauble hanging off a Christmas tree
For the last couple of years it has been leaned a bit awkwardly next to a wall but wasn't hung up properly, partly because it had a hole in the back that wouldn't fit any of the hooks we had. Then, having moved house recently, I found to my surprise...
A bronze coloured cross in Celtic style with two figures
Maybe you were involved in the school Nativity play. My ability as an actor was never fully recognised since the height of my acting career was fifteenth shepherd (in field –sitting). I never actually got to Bethlehem, never stood with my mates...

A person listening to the radio
This week though two pairs of my thick winter socks developed holes at the same time. I only have three pairs, so if I threw them away I would have to get a replacement, and suddenly the ecological messages of the last couple of years hit home and I...
Woollen socks
In our house, as in many others, it was the time when Mother prepared the Christmas puddings, cakes and other goodies for the Festive season. In the kitchen she gathered together the rich spices, peel and currants she had squirreled away in jars...
