To my chagrin, Anna was delighted. I don't think she ever liked it, but it has done something like 20 years sterling service.
I am sorry that there are no extant photos (or at least none I can find) of it in use - though of course the whole point was that in use, you only saw a circle of holly with candles emerging.
However, I suspect Anna has long been hoping for its demise, as she had an immediate solution up her sleeve.
(I wonder if Anna squashed it deliberately! Unworthy thought...)
So, as the headline suggests, I am feeling crushed....
