It’s been quiet
First Snowdrops and Croci are appearing in the garden! And that’s all to report back on in the garden; my time has been taken elsewhere, from sorting the loft to reverting back to childhood thanks to a keen Pokemon addiction I seem to have acquired (I’ve never even really watched the cartoons when I was younger, but for some reason I bought the game on the 3DS…. Anyway.)
So yes, this year I didn’t get a real tree.
Mainly because we have my brother’s artificial Christmas tree, which just happened to be sat in the spare room whilst the loft was reinsulated. I decided I should put it to use, as well as his decorations. Here the local council has a tree service where they will collect old real Christmas trees. Only it takes them a month after Christmas and I felt a dead tree in the back/front garden was not a good idea when I’m trying to sell (assuming anyone comes to view, that is).
So yes, we are the proud owners (not really) of a white and black christmas tree!
Unfortunately my brother didn’t have many baubles, so I had to use the tinsel/feathers otherwise it would’ve been almost bare. I’d rather not use them, because it’s apparently impossible to use tinsel on a tree and be stylish.
Of course, it also gave me the opportunity to use my Nightmare Before Christmas ornaments and baubles without them being completely out of place.
Can you spot the glass angel next to Jack Skellington?? Nice juxtaposition I thought…
Another year, and the same snowglobes. I hunted for more this year, honest. But they’re just not as cute/nice. This collection isn’t getting very far, because last year’s globes were disappointing too.
I’m not all about the silly/cute. Honest.
I can occasionally be sensible:
We’ll not mention I received a chicken hat from secret Santa at work, nor that I wore it when going to the local shops.
People complimented me on it though.
