Christmas Tree Shopping
Today we bought a Christmas tree, a real one, a Nordmann Fir. It’s a six footer and the first real one we’ve had in years. At the moment it’s residing in the greenhouse awaiting the arrival of my daughter, Sarah, from Australia. It’s going to be her job to decorate it, just like she did with her sister when they were younger.
The fir tree place was very cutesie; I half expected some elves to come running out to serve us.
This afternoon Paul has been upstairs in the attic room trying to locate the Christmas decorations amongst all the empty boxes. I only kept a few so we shall have to go shopping to find something to perch at the top of the tree.
I only hope Rick doesn’t treat it as his indoor bathroom when he sees it.

As long as he misses the baubles!Delete
It will be a happy and special holiday for you this year.ReplyDelete
I'm very excited about it this year.Delete
Don't buy extra decorations when you can make your own from waste cardboard, silver paper, glitter and glue sticks. All it takes is a little imagination. Pine cones sprayed gold and snowflakes cut from computer paper would also be nice. For illumination use little birthday candles set in colourful balls of plasticine.ReplyDelete
Someone has been watching Kirstie!!Delete
Or Blue Peter!Delete
Blue Peter? Isn't he a Californian pornstar?Delete
Yes, dogs do have a tendency towards doing that. I know from experience.ReplyDelete
Oh dear, I shall have to keep a close eye on him.Delete
Mine haven't done that, although they've always had a good sniff to see if others had!ReplyDelete
Our last dog was a girl with more refined toilet habits.Delete
I love the smell of pine, but sadly, I'm extremely allergic to it. Enjoy the tree decorating!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see it indoors.Delete
