Week 20 – Election coming

This week was one of working towards the General Election.  I delivered some leaflets to all 80-odd houses on an estate in my village.  This is not the estate, it’s the main street, with a former pub (now an Indian restaurant) in the background.  The Election was a waste of money, but the result was reassuring . . .

And I found a church in a beautiful setting by taking the long way back from where I fly at RAF Wittering:

Week 15 and Easter is here . . .

Easter for Christians consists of a culmination of the 40 days of Lent with a celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection.  It is the most important period of the Church’s calendar.  Our church, a Roman Catholic church in Biggleswade in the UK, celebrated the 3 days of the Triduum in fine style, but here is the simple cross on display after the Resurrection Mass.

In the garden the flowers are blooming.  We have mixtures of tulip colours and the medley is very effective in adding glorious colour to the garden.

And finally, here is a sight that pleases me greatly: my wife’s wonderful sourdough bread, with a little taken off to check that it’s still good  . . .
