With green exhortations deafening my ears, I went to buy a potted Christmas tree this morning. The only one left at the garden centre was the size of a very small twig stuck expensively in a cheap plastic pot.
So - to remind me of the Mediterranean and sunshine, I bought an olive tree! It can grow and grow and grow - 10 feet tall + over the years!
The madwoman descends from her attic ..
Oh and this one, because it's come true for me:
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful.
And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
