I bought my Christmas tree yesterday, from Miserden Nursery - an excellent place to buy a tree. They trimmed it for me, put it in the car, and gave lots of helpful advice. I had thought I would need to get it delivered, but it fitted in the car with no problems at all. I even managed to get it into the house and into the tree stand all by myself. Result!
I found the tree lights and decorations (after much searching in the attic) and spent a happy afternoon putting the various ornaments onto the tree. My tree decorations are a motley selection (or should I say an eclectic mix) of individual ornaments and baubles, some new, but most going back years if not decades. Two new ones this year - both presents from friends/family - a fluffy Christmas pudding and a felt reindeer wearing a red and white scarf. I don't decorate the whole house - this is about it - but it shows willing.
