Steve said the Pope is on tv live just now but I'm not sure I want to go see. We didn't watch the Queen's message either, even on YouTube. Steve is pretty anti royalty anyway!! I think the Pope is giving us a blessing.
Thanks heaps, Mothy, it was good to hear from you way over there. You filled an envelope with your usual thoughtfulness! I've had a very lucky Christmas with so many good wishes here, and two great Christmas masses that went really well, great food (of which we still have FAR too much left over) and wonderful warm weather. I am very fortunate. Our friends have just left after spending Christmas day with us, and it's midnight, so I guess we need to go to bed. I went to bed at half past two this morning, and had to be at Mass at nine again.
Take care, all over the world, dear friends. I feel like wishing for world peace. I'll wish for some peace in your own corner of our world for now. Just maybe close your eyes and enjoy a moment *g*
