The tree comes in three segments that fit into each other. Yes, I know, a real Christmas tree would be so much more authentic, filling the house with that lovely piney smell, but I got this plastic one half price on Boxing Day a couple of years ago, and, well, it's just so much more convenient. I'm definitely into less work and more convenience these days.
Next.... the lights. Thank goodness I took the time to wrap the wires round pieces of card last year before I put them away. I hate untangling strings of lights. As I said.... convenience.
Now to unpack the decorations. And the Christmas stockings. And look, there's even a box of Christmas crackers that I must have acquired on sale last year and forgotten about until now.
Next stop... I'm off to wrap some prezzies and bake some mince pies.
Update: I forgot to mention.... this is my 300th post! Many thanks to all you faithful bloggers who see fit to waste a couple of minutes of your precious time reading my assorted ramblings.
