And in the morning, the gales have blown themselves out and we awake to blue skies and calm. Out in the streets there are plastic bags wedged into railings and branches of trees.
We haven't quite reached the twelfth day of Christmas, but Govan's Christmas Tree has been taken down, by the wind itself! Tipped up and over and, ha ha, has smashed flat the ugly metal grille surrounding it.
For the second year running, the powers that be have seen fit to erect this railing around our festive tree. What for? No need. So, there you go, take that.
