Festive spirits


Said I’d be delighted to lend a hand. But had my boundaries. No dressing up as an elf, green not my colour. And definitely no fairies. Being snowbound in Silver City had its positives, the delay meaning I’d be in a hostel in Austin, Texas, for Christmas.

The hostel was laying on a Christmas dinner and I’d offered to help. Infinitely better than the alternatives. Instant mash and dog food – my own euphemism for anything in a tin – in the tent. Or microwave meal-for-one in a cheap motel.
