Not quite Downton Abbey…..

Hey, bet that headline grabs    attention – though have to say I really enjoyed the series which concluded last night. Good news that a second series is being produced  for us to indulge in next year. It got me thinking how so many of my female ancestors went into service in London in the late 1800’s in Big Houses -moving from the countryside often to find work. I love the way that upstairs and downstairs actually influenced each other lives a great deal – and in the case with Downton’s storyline, with huge consequences.Having been thinking a fair bit during this eason of All Saints ad All Souls about heaven and earth – I wonder to what extent those on this earth and those in the next world influence eachother in ways we dont understand? In the Holy Communion Service the priest says at the beginning of the Eucharistic prayer:

” Therefore with angels and archangels and the whole company of heaven….”

Just imagine being joined in worship by a heavenly host..

Anyway, no time to ramble on… ITV are coming out to film our Little Paxton Has Bell Appeal Project at 11.00am and I need to be around so off to the make-up and wardrobe department ( ??) and I’ll try to say something apposite and appealing!

Report later…..
