December has been particulary stressful in these parts and I have really not felt like blogging. At times I really thought the to do list would never come to an end. However we are now here - its Christmas Eve - the sacks have been laid out, the Santa plate is laden with a glass of sherry, mince pie and carrot for Rudolf. Santa has been tracked via the app and its too late to worry now about what hasn't been done.
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, may it be filled with blessing and joy!
We have lived in our house for just over 18 years and to celebrate our first Christmas here we bought ourselves an artificial tree from B&Q. It was the year before we got married, so money was fairly tight but we decided to splash out - I think we paid nearly £100 - which back in 1994 seemed like a fortune. However I'm happy to report it was money well spent as it is still the same Christmas tree we bring out each year and it looks as good now as it did back then.
Christmas 2005 - waiting patiently to open their presents
Obviously over the years, decorations have changed and the children have grown up, but one thing that is constant in the back of many photos is "Our Christmas Tree".
Getting ready for Santa 2007
Last year we did have some debate about getting a new, taller tree which comes pre-lit but somehow I don't think we will be able to give up our old favourite.
