    Ah bless! It's nice to know he can still manage it.

    I thought that by moving out I would escape Christmas decorations - they're too messy and tacky, and I have no kids (other than my partner) to entertain with it.
    I came home from work to find the mother-in-law had put up the tree for me and plans to take it down too. Win-win.

    Well, MrDt has promised we can get it up this weekend so that he can display his shiny, purple baubles. It'll be positioned near the window. The neighbours get a thrill, too.

    Not as bad as the Christmas when they were pink with blue dots! They fell off, at one point!

    Poor chap.


    This is what a healthy bauble looks like.

    I expect he's quite happy to display his baubles at this time of year.

    I have just bought a £1 tree from B&Q. What a bargain! Thank you so much for the tip. Money has been really tight this year and I really couldn't countenance the £50 we spent last year. Love the TES!

    There is no such thing as a Christmas tree.
    Unless anyone can define it?
