The fun’s over

As if it wasn't bad enough that we all started work again yesterday – myself after 2 weeks off – today marks the official end of Christmas festivities. Yes indeed, the fun's over. It's the twelfth day of Christmas; homes and offices across London are discarding their Christmas trees on the streets in order to avoid the devil dancing on their doorstep…or just to stick with tradition perhaps.

It's a sad, sad sight. On corners and pavements all along my cycle route toppled firs lie, bereft; stripped of their festive cheer and abandoned to whither, untended and lonely. It seems such a waste. Although unprepared this year, I'm hatching plans to make use of some of this free driftwood this time next year so watch this space…
