We are nearly at the Christmas holidays! Come on people, you can make it!
We took our daughter to see Father Christmas making his way down a nearby road, on a sleigh being pulled by a tractor. We are in the west country, after all.
As part of my “classics I’ve never read” series I am reading Little Women. I like the story, and the writing, but each time we get a homily about how hard work, modesty and gratitude are all that’s needed to succeed in life, I want to push the mother off a cliff. Let’s see her get out of that with just a Protestant work ethic.
Did I mention my daughter now owns a singing Christmas jumper? This is what 2020 has reduced me to.
