Yesterday the christmas tree was squeezed through the patio doors into the lounge. 
I was making sausage rolls in the kitchen at the time and when Michael called for me and I walked in the lounge I had a - Oh deary me, what a big tree! moment.

 Last night I got Michael to put the fairy on the top and drape the lights round it as I couldn't reach the top. Today I have spent the afternoon putting the baubles and other decorations on and I do think it looks very pretty. (The bucket at the bottom needs some attention but I'm leaving that for another day.)

I do like the fact that it still has a couple of pine cones on it, that's what sold it to me in the first place. If it hadn't been for them I wouldn't have got one quite as big but then knowing my past record, I probably would have.

I bought this santa decoration the other day when I was in the tourist information centre in town. I had to buy it for Michael as I thought it very appropiate as we have a boat just like that in our garage.

At long last I am beginning to feel a little more christmassy and I'm now off to listen to christmas music while I wrap some presents.


  1. Aaaw how lovely! Your tree looks gorgeous. I can see why you bought the little santa in a boat - he is very sweet :) Yup, it is definitely starting to look a lot like christmas!

  2. very pretty, its a good shape and I love the fact that it has cones on it. I was surprised to see there were a number of them on some of the trees we looked at. My daughter is going to help decorate tomorrow

  3. A lovely tree, the boat is very cute, and Yes! it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

  4. Wow. That is one seriously gorgeous tree! Yes it's big, but it looks amazing and is really well proportioned. You've decorated it so nicely too. x

  5. What a delightful tree, You have decorated it beautifully, you should be chuffed. The children will be so happy. Have a lovely day

  6. You're a lot further on than me if you have your tree up! It looks fabulous x
