It is a quiet Christmas here – two of the kids have had Ipods so they are busy and the third has his nose in the computer as usual (he is saving up to buy the bits for a super duper one so he had money and a computer magazine with a relevant article in it instead!!).
Our tree is a real one this year – it was growing in the garden blocking the path and DH suggested he cut it down last summer. I had the idea then of using it as a Christmas tree instead – it isn’t the usual sort but it smells gorgeous.
DS1 cut it down for us and decorated it as well. Here it is all lit up – alas, no more; for some reason the lights have fused and despite trying everything to get them back working, they stubbornly remain dim.
I have been getting on with the Etsy plan – I have spent hours in the forums and help pages getting to grips with it and have set up an account. And taken LOTS of photos … so all I need to do now is actually list some things! Watch this space….
