You will see that it was simply a tiny vase of bluebells - one that I'd used for Mothers' Union earlier in the afternoon. The perfume from them is magnificent.
The dog came along as well ... it seems that he assumes that if you stare at a door for long enough it will open!
Now, it has been a long day ... so time for bed!
Of your kindness, Lord, dispel the darkness of this night,
so that we your servants may go to sleep in peace
and wake to the light of the new day, rejoicing in your name.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
