BABY IT’S COLD OUT THERE – not the nashing of teeth but the chattering of teeth will be heard this weekend as the temperature drops. This is definitely a month for hibernating, pulling a chair up to the fire and pondering the absurdities of life whilst feeling a snug as a bug in a rug. Just don’t keep looking at the bank statements or you might be tempted to turn off the central heating! There is a tiny stretch in the days which is very welcome. Next week we will give the date of our next parish lunch.
ARE YOU SOMEBODY! – a writer, Jonathan Stedall, recalls how a friend of his was asked in all seriousness at an Oxford University garden party: ‘Are you somebody, or are you somebody’s wife?’!!!!!!!!!!
ECKHART TOLLE -‘When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. To complain is always non acceptance of what is. No negativity.’
