Back home I got the Christmas cards out and wrote the ones I need to take with me at weekend.
The Christmas gifts that aren't really Christmas gifts were wrapped for my brother's children.
And I bought some gifts that really are just gifts and don't need wrapping for my great niece and nephews, (gets confusing doesn't it).Then it was coat on and into the shed to sort out the decorations I wanted for the branch tree. These belonged to my Nanna and must be over 40 years old. No idea how I've ended up with them and I don't usually put them out but this year I'm going to find a place for them. Love the fact that the price per bauble is written on the box.
Looking at the photo I'm thinking maybe another 3 or 4 bunches of baubles just to fill in a couple of spaces. And although the star doesn't show up properly on the photo it does sparkle quite a lot in real life. The vintage baubles match in really well I think.
In between all this I've done my usual Monday chores, but I have to confess I've not been as thorough as usual, it's been more of a quick lick and a promise. Faffing around held more appeal than the feather duster today.
