We spent Christmas with Adam in Wales as usual. This year he has moved to a new parish and Christmas morning was my first visit to one of the churches in his new parish. This visit did not make a good impression on me I am sorry to say but not through anyone's fault.

A few days before the pipes had burst on the heating system and of course on Christmas morning there was no heating. The church is a fairly big building with a high ceiling and I have never been so cold in my life! The poor organist's fingers kept going numb from the cold.

If you look at the picture below you can see the hunched cold look on the people's faces, I hope they get their heating fixed quickly.

How do you know someone loves you?!!

I was getting the dinner the other night - yes I said I WAS GETTING THE DINNER! I just could not open a jar of pasta sauce no matter how I tried so I yelled out CAN SOMEONE COME AND OPEN A JAR FOR ME and all three of my menfolk came running!

Of course I could be sceptical and it could just be that they were hungry and wanted to make sure their dinner would be ready soon!
