Hope the preparations are coming along well for everyone. Since we are not going to be at home for Christmas Day (I'm cooking at my parent's house this year) I decided to go for a small tree, in fact a very small tree - I don't think it's even 2ft tall. I haven't had much of a festive feeling this year so I decided that I'd just pull down the first couple of boxes from the attic and put up whatever was in them - fortunately the small tree and some baubles were in there.
That was going to be it, but then I felt a bit guilty so to compensate I put some lights and christmassy bits on the mantelpiece.
And that was going to be it, but I had another small tree that I'd taken to the V&H fair, so I decided to brighten up the kitchen window.
And that really was going to be it ... but on the way home from work this morning I saw these two sweet angels in the charity shop.
And that really is it now! I'm off to find some festive spirit - Mr. Bloom has shut himself away in the bedroom and there's a lot of rustling of paper going on in there. I wonder what that's all about? I think I'll go and tease him about it, hee hee!
Thank you to eveyone who has left comments on my last few posts, I will get back to you all at some point, but for now I'd like to wish everyone a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas, filled with everything that makes it special for you.
