Happy Christmas to all my blog readers and followers. I am a happy bunny as my DD is home for Christmas Day only! Yah! So, I have actually made the mince pies , even made chocolates, wrapped the pressies before midnight ( oh joy!), and finished the cards!. One of my favourite things about Christmas is the tree, and this year I thought I would be frugal and use twisted willow sticks... BIG mistake! They looked awful, no matter what I did with them! While I was having a rant ( the artistic mojo had flown off with Santa), a friend phoned up, and I happened to tell her my predicament, and she, in the spirit of Christmas ( which is what it is all about) said would I like a tree, as her husband who sells them had a couple left! Oh boy! my day was made, ooh yes please, and it is a beauty! The old decorations are up on it, the lights are twinkling, and by this evening I will be collapsed with a glass of tipple and a chocolate in my hand in front of a roaring fire!
