“Mum, tell me again why you’ve got two Christmas trees up… and twice as many crackers as there are family!'

“I told you - if you buy it all during the sales after Christmas, you save a fortune! I bought half of this lot on Boxing Day last year and put it away for safe keeping. Then when this Christmas came round, I’d clean forgotten about it all. Now I have double!'

How we laughed!

Later the following year, Mum was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I can still picture the two trees, the crackers swamping the tablecloth, but I no longer laugh.
