Attempting some Christmas cheer
Little tree in the sitting room
I've not been feeling the joy so much this year, too much going on I think, nothing in particular but lots of little things in the background. Also the lack of little excitable children to add to the spirit. The only excitement shown from Harry was an eager scampering up the stairs to the attic to drag all the decorations down . After he helped Mike put the big tree up he scampered back up stairs to his x-box. Not that a 14 year old scampers - stomps might be the more appropriate word. I think Mike stomped back to the TV to watch Gold Rush, Extreme fishing or something to do with cars & left me to get on with it. Rob was in the pub. Pfft!
I do like my new nutcracker ornament though, can you see that he is an advent calendar.
A little attempt to bring some Christmas cheer to one of the worktops in the kitchen. I added a few things to highlight the lack of tiles & painting to Mike & also I displayed the sockets he is yet to put up!! The only remark I got from him was a suspicious 'When did the bowl & plate arrive'? - 'January' I snapped back. Then smiled sweetly & added ' Quite possibly the same time the sockets & tiles arrived too darling'
Pfft!! Enjoy your day my dears I'm back in the office Pfft! xx
