Tricia's tree

Over the years we've sent you lot a fair few Christmas presents - socks, tea towels and, nine years ago, Christmas tree saplings. This week we discovered that our Helen's mum Tricia's tree is still going strong – in fact, it is now eight feet tall, bedecked with baubles and has survived a few assassination attempts by Helen's dad, who thinks the garden would look tidier without it. 


Thanks for looking after it so well over the years, Tricia (and excellent jumper, by the way).
