Tom's midnight garden

Nothing stands still, except in our memory.

As said in Tom’s Midnight Garden (1958), the much-loved children’s fantasy book written by Philippa Pearce that I just finished reading. Thanks to my sister who got it for me for Christmas.

Bridget Jones sweater

Along with socks, slippers and chocolate, one of the traditions of Christmas is a novelty Christmas jumper. It is after all a great way to make a distinctive appearance, as Mark Darcey made with his festive Rudolph effort to Bridget Jones. After reading a post on the BBC website I decided to choose eight of the most distinctive Christmas sweaters from the Premier League. Do you have a favourite of the eight below?

Line(s) of the Day #TheBigBangTheory

The Big Bang Theory

Penny: You really didn’t like it, Sheldon?
Sheldon: No, on the contrary. I found the Grinch to be a relatable, engaging character. I was really with him right until the point where he succumbed to social convention and returned the presents and saved Christmas. What a buzzkill that was.
Leonard: When we watch Frosty the Snowman, he roots for the sun.
Sheldon: Excuse me, but the sun is essential for all life on Earth. Frosty is merely a bit of frozen supernatural ephemera in a stolen hat. A crime, by the way, for which he is never brought to account.
