The Christmas tree is very prickly and a bit lop-sided. That is because it is a pruning from the garden. However, the decorations are suitably festooned and they hide the bare bits reasonably well. Every year I am amazed that some of the baubles date back nearly forty years. Bit by bit we have added other mementoes from various countries. I do so admire the colour co-ordinated, designer trees seen in magazines and copied by friends, but there is something comforting about our eclectic mix of old and new.
I wonder if Martin knows his furry spider is usually a feature?
