Last week I started my final year of school. I’m sorry… WHAT?! It honestly feels like two minutes ago I was finishing year 6 and feeling oh-so grown up.

Once upon a time, many years ago, a baby was coming. And that is what we remember at Christmas. WeContinue reading “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”
