A new 2 CD production of Haydn "The Creation" which I intend to leave a couple of hours for some afternoon when everyone else is doing much less civilised stuff around the telly.
Coldplay, James and the Beethoven's 7th Symphony wrapped together as a gift package of eclectic music.
A book of the Duke of Edinburgh's politically incorrect gaffes and hilariously witty put downs which makes the Duke sound like a lot of fun to accompany.
Chocolate laced with chillies, and a large bar of chocolate with caramelised hazelnuts and praline.
A box of three bottles of rather fine selected red wines.
A hand cast metal paperweight in the shape of the dove of peace now sitting on my desk beside several other important objects of spiritual import to me - (including my holding cross, a 19th century brass light switch, a framed 1940's postcard of Izaak Walton's window in Winchester Cathedral).
So I've had a good Christmas - enriched further by good company and some surprise emails, phone calls and other people stuff. I'm just off to phone Bob and Becky - Becky is the much loved minister of the church in the gloriously Chirstmassy photo above. So if you read this Becky, leave a comment as kind of literary footstep in the snow!
Peace to all and joy forbye!
