Probably because I'm actually seeing some of my spread-all-over-the-world family this year. My not so little Canadian based brother is coming to stay, (he's nothing like me.. tall,dark and sporty as opposed to short, fat and blonde) but with the same stupid sense of humor, we laugh soooo much when we're together
The oldies are trundling over from France and hopefully I'll even see my sister from Thailand too.Yay!
We are having 2 Christmasses, a family one and a gifty one..mainly because pay day falls 4 days later than the big day and someone forgot to save any money up because of urgent plumbing repair jobs and a getting carried away with a certain room being decorated...er-hum.
Oh well, it will be fun having two festive days.We'll be like the Queen and celebrate things twice.
We even have two trees this year, the big fake one we bought in the sale last year and a little frosty larch one. I found some blue baubles in the loft from about 15 years ago and decided to go a bit patriotic and a bit kitsch in the dining room....
behold the Kitschmas Twee;
|you can't see the bottom as I ran out of red spotty ribbon!|
|I sooo love these 1950's paper balls|
|some decorations get sneaked on the tree every year|
|and are looking a bit |
|you can't beat a blue flocked reindeer|
|don't tell the chickens!!!|
...and it was all a bit frosty looking last week here too...loverley
|Butter wouldn't melt hey?|
|it wasn't me...|
Hopefully I'll pop back a bit more often next year but just for now ...
Happy Christmas to you...have fun! xx
