... a banana loaf for no other reason than because I had 2 old bananas...
... last night we had a delightful carol service at our local church... it's a teeny parish church that barely gets used but once or twice a year when it has a dusting down for a wedding or funeral... there are only 11 houses in the village and with most of us being old, married already, not the marrying type or ...old, its unlikely to get used much... so it was all the more delightful when we got together and decided to ask the local vicarette (she's a little bit Geraldine Granger... a little bit...) to hold a carol service...
... and we sang our little hearts out... all the classics; from 'Hark the Herald' through to Silent Night...all accompanied by our neighbour on the stunning church organ... I even read a portion of the Christmas story... could there be a more perfect Christmas for a Jewish boy from North London?
