Tree

Yey, Father Christmas came in the night and decorated the house...

But I wanted it PINK!!! What a pity somebody who shall remain nameless (Mark), has obviously chucked away the box containing the tiny little birds of paradise and rolls of scrumptious ribbon I was saving for the tree, along with all the fairy lights we owned (oh yes!)...

What a pity he won't be getting any dinner this evening...

However I have done my best with the year before last's decorations and made a late night trolley dash to Tesco, with my hair drowning in deep conditioner, to buy lights that don't do anything horrible like flash or fade (How not relaxing are they: Am I the only person in the world to feel twitchy when tree lights flash?) and voila we have a tree that Finley is certain was made by Santa's Elves.

Unfortunately it has been slightly re-arranged by his chubby little hands and I was over-ruled on banishing certain dec's like the strange white polar bear at the top, and Mark argued a very good case for putting the crackers on the tree (they remind him of his childhood), but the lovely little 1960's fairy story baubles are there, as are my little collection of vintage dec's and some ribbon salvalged from my ribbon box and though decorating the tree turned into a family affair I wasn't expecting (I am a control freak.), it is pretty and huge and twinkly and nothing like I wanted it to be, but it made me smile when I came down the stairs this morning because Mark had put the lights on and lit the candles before he went to work so Finn and I came down to a festive Wonderland and that is I suppose, the spirit of Christmas...

P.S: all my Christmas photo's will be in an album here...
