Yes, yes, it's Christmas - Tree. Part One.

.

Yes, well, it apparently wasn't enough to admit that Christmas might just be approaching. I have to actually do something about it.

So the car and I went out - in the rain - to interview applicants for this year's post.

This chap seemed to have the right qualifications. Tall, strong, the right shade of green. Not so opulent around the mid-section that we'd have to be edging past him for the next couple of weeks.

No conversation, though. I mean, he just sat there in the passenger seat all the way home without saying a word. Possibly he didn't want to distract me from calculating safe braking distances on a wet surface.

At least you're allowed to chose your tree, I'm not. Though this may have something to do with the fact that if I do we usually have to lop most of the top off and squeeze round it all Christmas...

Have a great Christmas,
