The Brentwood Gazette’s Weekly Teaser — 2-12-2015: Saint Paul’s Cathedral

Right … 

It’s officially done … 

I’ve now — officially — wrapped all my Christmas presents.

Which, as you can POSSIBLY imagine … ?

Is a job and a half: especially when you consider at least three of those presents are for my nephew, Jude.

Who’s going to be five on Boxing Day.
