Merry Christmas and Buon Natale to allBy
I have returned to my duties as lookout, town crier, Samuel Pepys, and portraitist.
But Christmas is no time for teeth-grinding or fist-shaking — I state that as a principle, but it’s still early and reality may yet intervene — and so please consider this post as my heartfelt wish that it may be a beautiful time for everyone. And that 2014 will be the best year ever.
I have to close; Lino has begun to roast the eel for tomorrow night’s dinner and I need to go open all the windows.
