As some of you might have noticed, Xmas will soon be upon us. Mr Osbiston and I have not managed to resist the temptation to jump on the bandwagon and spent Sunday decorating our tree. This year we decided to splurge on a real tree, which was a first for me. In South Africa real Xmas trees are almost unheard of and it’s only when you smell that particular must of synthetic tree that you know the season has started.
We might also have gone slightly ornament mad. I can’t resist a big fat ornament and managed to smuggle all of these little dazzlers into the trolley. I am still disappointed that I dropped the clear glass, Styrofoam ball filled , Let it snow bauble and smashed it but I think our glowing berry lights kind of make up for it.
Bring on the mince pies!
