Good thought Jan, but it's too late for us. (Besides, Ivanhoe Acres is such a vast expanse of territory that a 4ft tree would look lost ;0))
Even though we're away for Xmas, I succumbed to the spirit and bought a tree last Saturday (Gt Suffolk St greengrocers - at least £5 cheaper than B Mkt). Mrs I had to work in the daytime, so imagine her suprise when she got home to find I'd got a chicken roasting in the oven, stuffing and chipolatas and roasties, sherry, mince pies, etc, AND A TREE!
We put the deco's on the tree, had "Xmas dinner", and then sat down to watch "White Christmas" and rub our full tummies. Mrs I made a short but regal speech about her horrible anus and that was it. Christmas is officially finished.
...if you press it, they will come.
