Hemmed In By God

St. Mary's Cathedral Spire

From the windows of my new flat, I can see five spires: one University, which was founded in 1451 by a bull from Pope Nicholas V, one Episcopalian Cathedral, and three churches, (one Methodist, another Catholic, I think, while the third is now a bank).

Gerard, who lives nearby, pointed out all the spires and said, ‘We’re hemmed in by God.’ A lovely coinage, I think (unless he nicked it from someone else).
