This charming depiction of an expectant Astragal tucked up in bed on Christmas Eve was sent in by Sheila Mullon for the aj/SimCity Christmas card competition. Long-standing readers will recall that the portrait adorned the Astragal page until the early 1990s. Needless to sayMs Mullon's entry was shortlisted immediately.
