Mothering Sunday is always special. After church Fred and I took Mum out for lunch. And a very fine lunch it was in a packed restaurant where everyone and his mother was out to make mum feel special.

Fred was, as always, great company and a good laugh! I am now ready for an afternoon nap, but that's not going to happen since I am on the tube down to Covent Garden to preach at the Central London church service. That will be fun – then I predict a snooze on the tube on the way home!
