So old and irrelevant her remembrance.

For the Tudors, before Christmas was a time of fasting. They would fast for Advent, the four weeks leading up to Christmas, and Christmas Eve was particularly strict. On Christmas Eve they were not permitted to eat meat, cheese or eggs. On Christmas day, after three masses were said, the genealog...Read more of this blog post »

It’s not been an easy week. My two young children have succumbed to the winter vomiting virus that is sweeping through our town at an alarming rate.
