Monday 14th December 2015

     Somehow the donkey got left out when I packed the figures for a visit to the pre-school.  The children had just decided that Mary would get to Bethlehem by going on a donkey; so I had to find one.  There he was in the stable scene.  So I perched Mary on that version of a donkey.  "She's riding the cow as well,"  they said.  "She's just practising in the shed before they go to Bethlehem"  --  and all was well.
     I hope that's not their lifelong picture of the Christmas story.  But it wouldn't really matter, given that St Luke and St Matthew have their own totally different versions!
