Foggy and frosty

It's been a bit cold here over the last 36 hours, and I've even lit the open fire in the sitting room in the evenings. The church where the first service today was held was also very cold. The two calor gas heaters didn't make much impression, and my fingers were so numb that it was difficult to pick the bread off the paten at the distribution of communion. I've tried mittens, and they're no use at all. So at every opportunity I stick my hands inside the sleeves of my alb. It helps, but doesn't really warm them. Maybe it's time we brought back fur-lined albs and surplices ....

    We truly can't be satidfied with our weather can we? What stereotypes!
