When I was about 5 my sister bought me a tiny cactus (about 4cm tall). It sat on my windowsill through childhood until it became so tall it wouldn't actually fit where the window was any more. When I moved into my new house (17 years later) it got a nice big pot in the conservatory. Last winter a combination of overwatering and the frost got it and it died - I couldn't believe how gutted I felt because of a plant :( I'm not convinced it had feelings, but I do kindof miss it - especially now its not there to attack me as I walk past.

Just this Monday we were Christmas Tree shopping and came up with the comment that theses trees must have especially thick skins.

We rejected trees for:
- Being too tall
- Being too short
(although Matt did seem to have difficulty comprehending the height of the lounge, since we had to chop at least 6 inches off the top to make it stand up and not hit the ceiling)
- Being too bushy
- Being too spindly
- Having dead bits at the top
etc etc etc

Imagine coping with that sort of rejection, and then the elation of being picked up by a family, taken home and given all the water you could want (incidentally, ours is getting through at least 2 kettle fulls of water a day)

You'll have an ace time listening to Bill Bryson! Alisdair and I heard him speak in Turner Sims a year ago, and he ruled.
