@Froggee – a wonderfully told tragic tale with a fortunately happy ending. At the risk of repeating myself, Gerald Durrell, whose books I greatly enjoyed, is rather upstaged.

I was very fortunate this year in that the pink team not only gave me a pink ticket to go to Belgrade last weekend but also used that time to procure and wonderfully decorate a magnificent tree. Only problem has been some yoofs who have suggested that the thing on the top of the tree can’t be called a fairy…

I’m not sure whether the pink team takeover was due to a past fail where I apparently bought a wrongly proportioned tree. My (not accepted) excuse was that I was distracted by meeting our future King and aunt who were the only other people at the tree place who insisted on chatting although I had no idea who they were until the chap who carried my tree to the car told me.
