Its Wednesday already now where has the rest of the week gone already. Just over a week now ladies till the big day. Have you all been good and will santa be visiting you? Well i have taken some more photos of our decorations to share with you.
The first photos is our tree in the conservatory. This year has been a bit stressful and we have not decorated up as much as we would normally do. We only have a tree and snowman in the conservatory this year, but i have big plans for next year!!
To begin with i was not sure about the black and white tree, but when we put it up last year (we had it in the hallway last year) i was thrilled with it. It is my favourite tree. All the decorations came from the Wyevale sale the year before for a real giveaway price, the angels were all 50p each even the large ones, what a bargain!!
This is the tree in the lounge, this is what it looks like in the daylight. I have to say it does really look better in the dark, this tree is nearly 10 years old, but it has a few years of life left in it (according to my dear hubby). I would love a new tree nexst year, but will have to start saving. Last year we decided against this one and brought a smaller tree, but David insisted on the big one this year, and he is the one who is always moaning about christmas. I think secretly he does love it, just likes to moan and make us feel miserable about it, bless him!
This is proof he likes christmas more than he cares to admit. I couldn't be bothered to do the hallway display, as you know i havn't had much enthusiasm for christmas this year, but no hubby insisted and set to work on it himself. I have to admit i was impressd with his efforts. We usually have much more snow, lights and a tree, but the kids are thrilled with it.
Then finally the fireplace in the lounge, again done by my dear hubby. I have to say maybe i should leave it all to him next year.
Some of you will know that christmas has been slightly overshadowed for me this year due to things that have been going on in my personal life. I usually adore christmas. This year its been one more thing to worry about.
I have been very behind with all the preparations this year, but i do think im nearly there now. I have to say i have had so many kind words from fellow bloggers and that has kept me going so thank you to each and every one of you who has helped to spur me on.
I will be rewarding you all with some blog candy up for grabs. I am putting it together today, and will post it hopefully later this evening. I had planned on getting it out to the winner before christmas, but i feel doubtful about this now. I may actually run it until Christmas Eve and then post it as soon as the post office opens again.
Well today i am hoping to finish my christmas shopping, will speak to you all again very soon.
Have a good day, hugs Linda x
