Getting caught up on our man Pepys...
It beggars belief!!! I had to pry my jaw from the floor!
Start on the December 18th 1665 (in St Olave's church, no less) and read forward at least until December 20th. Do read the comments, our Pepys' fans are flabbergasted: http://www.pepysdiary.com/archive/1664/12/
And here I was looking for some cheery restoration Christmas stuff.
This is your reading assignment of the day.
UPDATE: Do read Christmas day and Boxing Day next. Twice to church whilst making excuses for the missing Missus, meanwhile taking in all the eye candy.
