I am feeling a bit sentimental today, it must be Christmas, or the thought of cooking Christmas dinner for 17, or the sherry. What is the one object that means Christmas to you? For me, it's this huge willow pattern meat platter. It belonged to my grandfather, Grampie Greenham, and over its long life must have carried hundreds of festive roasts to the table in the west country and now here in London. I will be using it when my family arrives for dinner on Christmas day.
