Boxing Day began with Church [well, it is Sunday!] We dismantled the paper chains we had made in yesterday’s service and we each got a section containing a task or two which would be an Act Of Random Kindness, or a Reminder Of God’s Goodness.
My two links said “Look Up At the Stars” and “Take Cakes To Colleagues At Work”
I shall do #1 whilst at Cornerstones, and #2 when term starts again.
Back home for lunch. Bob is now Officially On Holiday, so he cooked two superb curries [a veg one and a turkey one]
I filled the pavlova I had prepared earlier with some cherries and raspberries from the freezer.
Then we went for a walk in Abbey Park.[One of Bob’s paper chains said “Go for a walk”]
It was like ‘Walking In a Winter Wonderland’. The river and boating lake were frozen.the ducks seemed very cold. The waterfowl came right up to us though [we hadn't taken any food for them though]
On the bridge, looking at the ice
Nobody is going in the water today!
More cold waterfowl [is that a crane?]
Weird sculpture [wonderful daughter]
The Chinese pagoda and bridge
Cardinal Wolsey looked very cold too!
The ruins are picturesque
Back home for tea and hot buttered crumpets. Later on, Liz and Bob made Bubble’n’Squeak for our evening meal. Real Comfort Food!
Then we watched “Upstairs, Downstairs”. I am reserving judgement till I have seen all three programmes!
Looking forward to Cornerstones tomorrow – but sorry to be parting from the girls, we have had such a great time together.
**Ay Up Me Duck is a popular expression in Leicestershire. According to the BBC it means “Good Day Sir [or Madam]”
