Holly Tree day...We cut it, arranged it and my niece Tegan came by to help decorate. We are officially festive!
It was great having Tegan here as I could tell her all the nostalgia stuff without her rolling her eyes and having heard it all before...though I think maybe she did lose interest after the third or fourth decade of tales!
...how my folks used to decorate the Holly on Christmas Night as an extra gift from Santa
...how my brother 'heard' Santa as the bell decorations were being put on the tree.
..how I still have very threadbare tinsel which is almost 65 years old..and how Col says it looks like it!
..ahhh how I love Nostalgia and also making new nostalgia for my children's future xx
Oh and amazingly we have scooped two hampers the past 2 hours .. one via Sainsbury's and none from our train trip last weekend.. how cool is that!
