It arrived on my doormat yesterday morning. I cannot, as yet, bring myself to open it.
Ascension Day hasn't even passed; perhaps we are, gradually, reaching the point I have feared for some time, when the whole year is Christmas. That's if we last that long, of course, in view of the last post.
I realised I actually enjoyed reading my friends' blogs, and so have made my own, with an oblique nod to 4th-century theologian Theodore of Mopsuestia. Christian and Gothic matters will probably predominate. Names are changed to protect the furtive.
