The boys were happily decorating their gingerbread house in this photograph as I snapped away hurriedly. Out of camera view, the side walls were tilting in. The occupants, Mr Gingerbread and Snow Lady, were evacuated as the collapse of their beloved kit-home seemed imminent.

“Yes, that’s true. At least we have each other … and, we got the Christmas tree out in time,” Snow Lady replied, leaning her head gently on Mr Gingerbread’s shoulder.
