Our trees are up, and the festive glow is finally kicking in. I have let house hunting worries drift to the back of my mind until the New Year and all is happy and calm. Who could be grumpy when you’re surrounded by this lot….
We have two trees. A gorgeous and traditional real noble fir. The smell of Christmas hits you when you walk in the room and it looks just beautiful.
Then I have my Kitschmas corner. A white fake tree adorned with glitter skulls, flamingo lights and topped with a hula girl. The two combined sum me up pretty well – part traditional, part kitsch. One tree just isn’t enough for me!
We took the kids for the yearly visit to our local garden centre on Saturday, to view their fabulous displays of decorations. We have a tradition where we each choose one new tree decoration every year. This year went slightly wrong. We may have bought more than one each. I may have overspent slightly, but on the plus side I finally managed to ditch the last of the cheap multi-pack plastic baubles and have an eclectic and wonderful mix of far nicer ones – my theory is I will have these forever now, so it’s a bargain in the long run isn’t it…. 😉
