Despite all gloomy predictions over the weekend we thankfully remained frost free. It was very cold though and in both of yesterday's churches the temperatures were well down.
The last one was actually arctic...these medieval churches take a lot heating! The service started at 10.30 in a church currently in interegnum so I am still unfamiliar with its ways!
When we got to the passing of the Peace I was amazed to find that all the members of choir had lovely warm hands....mine were turning blue by that time!
After wards having said the final prayers I asked them how they'd done it....where had the warm hands come from?
They giggled....they had they said had blankets!
From the front they appeared to be in good order in their choir robes....but around their legs and lower bodies were thick crocheted blankets. They demonstrated...I was impressed. I'd been sitting close to them and I hadn't seen the colorful accessories.
I'm there again next week....my last words on leaving were "And next time I'm having a blanket too! "
This morning there is a sprinkling of snow outside but cars seem to be running without problem. I'm not going out without my blanket!
