"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Happy Christmas!

From me and Ruth and Jewel

(on Christmas Eve, waiting for Santa)

and Lola

and the Chap.

This morning, the young girls enjoyed their newest toy

and this girl was thrilled to have a fun new shirt

(you've been warned!)

Everyone received more bounty than they felt they deserved, and all are grateful to the givers.

For at least two centuries, and possibly longer, my family members have enjoyed this traditional custard.

Off I go to consume some....
