Christmas time


I love the simplicity of this tree, loads of tiny square mirrors and three birds. It has pride of place in the kitchen/family room. DH loves the baubles and flashing lights etc so that tree lives in the room he occupies most of the time along with the tv set :)
After 33 years of marriage, I have my in-laws coming for Christmas for the first time - how scary is that. The house has been scrubbed, bedrooms emptied of all my tut, the decorations are up, the mince pies made (home made mince and pastry), I have done the shopping and wrapped the presents and I am ready. I feel quite virtuous. Dh decided yesterday to re-paint one wall but only did half, so today I had to do the other half. Duh!
I hope everyone reading this will enjoy a happy holiday and the very best of health, wealth and happiness in the new year.
