THERE’S so much to love about Christmas…
But in my opinion, the best bit of all. The thing I most love (besides the booze and presents that is) is the Christmas tree.
And to be more specific, putting up and decorating our Christmas tree.
Since being a wee nipper, nothing makes me feel more festive than battling with some branches, dangling some lights and getting tangled in some tinsel.
Sure it’s tricky, sure it can take ages but when it’s finished and I step back, I just know that Christmas has arrived.
Last year in our house, I was chuffed to bits when I realised that Elsie had begun to appreciate the Christmas tree magic too and so, this year, and another year older, I am very, very excited about decorating our tree with my little helper.
And to make it even more exciting?
I’ve got a new one. (Tree that is, not daughter. I could never replace my cherub.)
