The tree is up YAY! I bloody love Christmas trees, I love the lights and all the baubles. My mums pretty keen on putting the tree up just 12 days before Christmas but over the years we've worn her down and it's getting earlier and earlier each year. I spent yesterday afternoon putting up and decorating our tree, we went for a red and gold theme with lots of lights. Mixed in with the red and gold baubles we mixed in lots of personal baubles like the dove my sister and I got from St Pauls Cathedral when we visited London a few years ago, the silver star my nana gave me as a little girl that has gone on every year since and personalised stockings with the whole families name on them - I won't bore you by telling you about all the personal ones. We finished the tree by putting some candy canes on it, I wonder how long they'll last! I'm so happy with our tree it makes the house feel more Christmassy but the person who might just love it more than me is the cats, especially Soxs who you'll find nestled underneath it.
