Today was massive clean up day at home in readiness for ....wait for it.... Yayy the Chrissy decorations. James said he would help me get them down from the loft, ha ha . Half an hour later he couldnt believe we were still at it. I dont think hes seen that many decorations in his life, lmao. With that he made a quick exit to the gym and left me to it. A wise decision. These are just some of the boxes
Bare trees look horrible dont they..??
Yes they were originally lightbulbs..!!!
and more baubles.
I love dressing the tree, but I had really mixed feelings today. Every bauble holds so many memories, and the tears didnt seem to stop coming. Can,t decide if I,m looking forward to it or not. Its going to be so different this year. On the minus side theres no Mum and Dad, and the girlies , bless them, are going away. On the plus side, James is home and we have Maisie Christmas Eve..!!
Anyway heres how the house is looking now.
I love my hand painted baubles.
And I have a full set of these Gisella Graham dolly birds.
Maisie loves all these and spends hours talking to them, lol.
These stockings hold lots of memories and are draped across the window pole.
Guess what these are..
Yes they started life as wooden candlesticks.
And these are Ben,s favourite of the ornaments.
Wednesday is Christmas Craft Day, so if you are free come along and join us. Elaine the Baker is putting in an appearance so there will be loads of baking..Yayy...!!! And I will be singing along badly to carols all day, woop, woop. See you there.
