The Arrival of the Tree

O and C went out to get a Christmas tree today. O said during lunch, he thought they might have picked a bit to small a tree, but when it was delivered and he had to carry it up the stairs, I think he thought otherwise. The arrival of the tree was seriously the beginning of Christmas for me. I was jumping up and down with joy and then we played Wham's "Last Christmas", whilst decorating it. *It's nice to approach the 40s as you nowadays can rock to any old music with ease and no embarrasment what so ever* and packed up our Christmas boxes.
It was a close fit

I particularly liked the base of the tree as "getting the tree straight" with a Swedish Julgransfot *a cup with 3 screws, which you spend a couple of annoying hours adjusting to get the tree standing straight* is usually one of the pet hates of the Christmas. A time at the holidays where we always end up cross with each other. Me for B not listening when I am instructing him and he for me giving him to many instructions..

J overcame her fear of the vacum cleaner today..

The result, knowing myself, I will make my own adjustments when the children are not looking, like the santa and angel party C arranged on one of the branches..
I also sneaked outside to see how it looked and it was a very cold and crisp night outside. I felt a little bit smug when I noticed that our tree was bigger than fancy lady's downstairs.., but I am not going to feel guilty about that, because the last time I met her, I was really nice to her, I was just coming back from my hair dresser and I told her so. She looked at my hair, made a face and said: "Well, the wind probably blew it around a bit.." *oh, she's pure joy to be around...*
