Well, I've dressed the tree, the mantlepiece and the hall side window and that's it, the sum total of my Christmas decorations. I'll take photos when all the lights are on and show them in due course.
I still don't really feel in the Christmas mood, but I dare say that will come. Once I'd finished the tree (which is very minimalist! - my choice), I stood back to have a look and could almost hear Aunt Sylvia saying "Blimey, that's not very Christmassy, get some tinsel on it, and bigger baubles!" - which made me chuckle (I've never been fond of tinsel). Still, I like the tree, and that's all that matters.....husband isn't bothered one way or the other. I'm pretty sure I will have a bigger tree next year, though.
This morning I made several dozen little cheesy biscuits - each one is just a mouthful, so it's not as OTT as it sounds. I had 2 or 3 (or 4....or 5) for testing purposes 😉, husband had a couple, then as soon as they were cold I froze them all. Safest thing to do, they're very moreish, and anyway they're to take to best friend's house on Christmas day, along with some little chocolatey treats I'll be making nearer the time.
I made another Christmas card, only 2 more to do and then I've finished them all - just got to write in them all now 😂
Cherie, it's a very good idea to treat the poinsettia as if it were a bunch of flowers and throw it away when it gets past it - after all, it only cost £3, less than the cost of a bunch of carnations! I shan't feel so guilty now, if it drops all its leaves and keels over in a couple of weeks. I may or may not buy another one!
