Getting Christmassy

We are happy to be getting a bit festive here, at last.  The tree has been up for a wee while but the rest of the house has not had much attention yet.  The holidays are here and somehow  I managed to coax all three children to come and make some decorations using cranberries, star shaped oranges, tufts from the offcuts of the christmas tree and some green wire thread.  There is a most unusual additional item on one of the decorations, teen boy’s idea of a joke.

This weekend we’ll be shopping, making the back room festive and relaxing with friends.  All of us here really need some slow time to recharge and get ready for Christmas.  It feels like I have been in a whirlwind this week.  F was in a play, his main part was Dopey the dwarf and he was brilliant.  What a laugh (it was meant to be funny), he got the rather serious audience smiling.  Now he’s absolutely shattered, it wouldn’t surprise me if he did not see the morning tomorrow.  That’s what holidays are for though, isn’t it.

Wishing you a happy and fun weekend, good to know we can have a bit of a breather before the big day.xx
