S has been away for work for the last few days so I have amused myself in the most appropriate way I could think of for this time of year - I put up and decorated our Christmas tree.
It was good timing as we don't quite see eye to eye on the topic of Christmas decorations. He thinks that as we will be away at Christmas there is no need for a tree but I don't see why that means I should get to enjoy several weeks of gazing at a beautiful tree - plus all the other ornaments around the house. He also thinks that a good Christmas tree looks like a tinsel monster threw up all over it, while I don't usually have any tinsel on the tree. However he does love it once it is all up, so I feel I used my time wisely.
Along with the heavily laden tree we have decorations all over our lounge room. Christmas comes just once a year but I'm going to enjoy the prettiness for as long as I can!
I hope you enjoy these snippets of our Christmas tree - it is guaranteed to put a huge smile on my face every time I walk through the door.
