The Night Before The Night Before Christmas


So a three week hiatus, and in the interim weeks I’ve fallen for that ‘schoolboy error’ – not checking the tyre when inserting a replacement inner tube. A small nail it was.

The problem now faced is lack of prominence in the valve to allow my foot pump to attach – a hand pump is a poor second. (I write as I leave Edinburgh City Centre in a black cab; it has been far too long since a bike ride or associated posting).

Advent continues to deliver a more enriching experience than the crass consumerism that surrounds us all ever could.

I am attempting Evangelii Gaudium in snatches; ‘The Joy of the Gospel’ is delivering on the truth that there is something so rich and freely available for everyone, something eternal in this society of short-term outlooks and selfishness.
