Subject: RE: BS: What are you up to this weekend?
SSsssssshhhhhhhhhhhhh... no-body move, I've dropped me brain.
We drank like pirates last night and today we're having hangovers like pirates.
I'm off for a quiet hour in the bath now, after an hours rehearsing of The Messiah that I'm performing in the week after next....
Hopefully I'll have garnered enough energy to make the Christmas pudding by then, it's Stir Up Sunday today!
For the non-church going or terminally confused, the Collect (prayer) for today, the Sunday next before Advent, according to the 1549 prayer book is "Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."
Better get those almonds blanching... after a nice long soak for me!
