kicks off next week, with an Installation in St Mary's Churchyard. Members of Hitchin Stitchin' have been preparing for this. Some of us have even chosen our trees.
It was while touring through the churchyard, avoiding the marquees, that I became aware I was being watched.
I began to feel like an extra (one who wouldn't last long) in Hitchcock's The Birds.
It was lunchtime, of course, and there were people eating, but I couldn't help feel that these plump ducks needed no extra padding.
People use St Mary's churchyard for a picnic lunch on fine days, and this was a fine day.
I've selected a tree. I hope no one else want the little spindly one just inside the main gates.
