I know Good Friday was nearly a week ago but seeing the bakeries are all still bristling with hot cross buns I thought it was still reasonably topical.This year, as we do every year, we gathered at my mothers for a bun eating brunch.
This was not the case when I was growing up. Good Friday always seemed to be a bleak and dreary day, not a thing was open , no traffic was on the roads and we attended a long church service . May be it is purely my social circle, but I do not know of one person who went to church last Friday. Such a sign of the times.
