Merry Christmas 2008

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.

Definately more festive now.

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.
