The tree is up, the kids are turning into little monsters in front of our eyes and the house is ‘a-glow’ with fairy lights…Christmas has finally found us!
We spent Sunday decorating our house and choosing a tree (this takes me some time as I search for the ‘perfect’ shape). Sounds like bliss? It wasn’t. After a lovely trip to see the reindeer at Cotley Farm, we chose our tree (which is perfectly formed!) and headed home blaring Christmas tunes at the top of our lungs.
Once home, the erecting of the tree went smoothly (well done hubby), as did the lights (mainly due to MY organised packing away last January). The kids quickly pulled out every decoration, hung a few and promptly stopped.
“Why aren’t you helping,” I asked. “It’s boring,” came the reply. Oh. And that was that. They’d lost interest. If it wasn’t for the sheer fact that I am a self confessed control freak when it comes to decorating the tree I’d have forced them to carry on.
So, as they were not so interested I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourite Christmas decorations.
