From readingn what I wrote in these pages on this day last year, I guess this was when I went home last year. And as I recall last year on ths weekend there was only two more weeks of term to go. Now, the year is 1992, and I have three whold slogging weeks to go.

Never mind, these past two days have been magic in theirown way. Christmas Advent has been lighting it’s staff and burning bright in my heart. A performance of Madame Butterfly in the grotesquely green painted Marina Theatre in Lowestoft crowns the weekend.
