Oranges and Lemons

The Bells of St Clements.

……..The coolest room in the house is the hallway which contains the piano and a very old seat made from a church pew. For some reason I have spent a lot of time this week sitting on this seat accompanied by the dogs Bella and Bea.The phone rings ” Everything OK? says my daughter.”Fine love,thankyou and you?” I say,delighted to hear her voice.

” Perfect, Mum,thanks.”

Some time later I ask ” Where is this seat from?”

“Oh,it came from St Clements,You know the oranges and lemons church” she replied.

 Long after she had gone ,I was still sitting, an arm round each happy dog thinking about all the worshippers through the centuries who had sat on this particular  seat throughout  the generations.This beautiful Eastcheap church was designed by the architect Sir Christopher Wren…..
