We've had the Christmas frenzy and then the recovery, and swooped up to the beginning of a new year…
And now we're sort of wondering what to do next. Or I am.
Christmas and New Years Day being on a Friday has definitely thrown me off balance, because I've had the feeling both times that the holiday means it's Saturday! Today is the day after it all — but's it's a Saturday, the beginning of a weekend, which is yet more holiday. Aieeeee!
I really should think about getting back to everything on Monday, but then it's almost Twelfth Night, and that's a traditional celebration as well as being the appropriate time to take down all the decorations. Perhaps I'll let next week slide by too….
So how are you coping with the way Christmas has fallen this year?
When will regular life resume for you?
Or has it already?
I visited Exeter Cathedral last week and spotted a memorial I'd not seen before. I can't imagine why not, because it's a bit odd. Is anyone's Latin good enough to translated it? Who is Basil Guelielmi (or is that just the Latin for William) and why is it in Latin in the late 18th century. But mostly, why those little circumflexes over some of the letters? I welcome all input. You can see a larger version by clicking on it.
The next time I'll be blogging here we'll definitely be settled into regular times. I think I'll be quite relieved!
