Merry Christmas...and a visit to Bangor Cathedral Christmas Tree Festival.
December 25th 2014...Wishing you all a lovely peaceful time, wherever you are...especially the women, who in my experience make Christmas happen for their families! Here's a photo of my mantlepiece..yes, I know, a bit over-dressed but it's only once a year!
Last Saturday my daughter and I escaped the shopping frenzy for an hour in the calm cool oasis of Bangor Cathedral. We went to see the Festival of Christmas Trees. It was all looking very pretty...
There are two paintings on long-term loan in the cathedral..they are really stunning..modern interpretations of Caravaggio's paintings of Christ, by John Granville Gregory. One is called "Why" and the other is "Still Doubting"...I will leave you to guess which is which ;-)
It's 2a.m. on Christmas morning..I have finally finished wrapping presents, peeling sprouts, making cranberry sauce and grinding nuts for tomorrow's nutroast (we are vegetarians...no sacrificial turkey in this house!) . I am too tired to write more and am off to bed now. Happy Christmas to you all. xx
