Happy New Year!

Today is the first Sunday of Advent, and thus the church year starts anew. At Woking URC, the four candles in the circular wreath are white, and the one in the middle is red. There are no Christmas decorations up in the church...yet.

This afternoon we finally enjoyed our first Sunday roast. Even the pubs that usually have age restrictions invite people of all ages to dine with them for these special meals. We headed across the street to our local hangout - The Sovereigns. When the railway came to Woking back in 1838, this building was called The Railway Hotel, and it was the first to provide accommodation of its type in this area. Today it still serves good food and drink, and if Dave chooses his table carefully, he has a direct line of sight to our flat and a connection to our Internet!
