PH and VR in the kitchen of our flat. PH made that place look great, those are her pictures on the wall behind them. She was a great car-booter.

Christmas tree left on the pavement

This is the third one of these I've seen round our way today.

Unless you’re my Dad, who keeps a wizened little tree in a pot in the garden and brings it in every December to bedeck with tinsel. Surely there has to be a happy medium. Monty Don says mulch your tree down as compost – if you have one of those garden shredder things.   Maybe next year
