So as we’d hoped, this has been a busy yet successful weekend.
Tree purchased? Check!
Decs up? Check!
What do you think?
We got our (real) tree from a Wyevale Garden Centre which was great – free Hot Chocolate while we were picking it out and a complimentary bottle of mulled wine with the purchase!
It smells amazing (the tree not the wine, although maybe the wine – will let you know)
Every year Tom requests an Eagle for the top of the tree (to make it look more manly?!) but we’re yet to find one so have just settled on two Robins for now.
Not quite worthy of a mention in “A Beautiful Mess” (another of my fave blogs – I MUST remember to get round to adding this onto the Home section of my favourite blogs list that I posted here). Sadly I’m no interior design expert *sigh* but hey, it’s quirky Christmas fun!
Advent candles have become a bit of a tradition. We were a few days late in getting them this year but that just meant they cost us half the price!
Soaking up the new festive feel in the living room whilst cosying up to watch The Polar Express? Check! Did you know that this film is now ELEVEN years old!! We couldn’t believe we’d gone all that time without seeing it.
Congratulatory glass or 2 of Prosecco to celebrate all our hard work? Check!!
Ok, so it may have ended up being a bottle. Shhh.
Hope you had a great weekend!
