Is treefie a ‘thing’? If not, it should be!

I decorated the tree in a style described as ‘toddler on a sugar high’!


This month, I’m again attempting to blog every day to turn this corner of the internet into a sort of advent calendar. Posts will be tagged ChristmasCountdown2015 or you can look at the calendar in the sidebar ⇒

Christmas Countdown | 10 | Our Christmas tradition

When T and I got married, we invented a Christmas tradition, in which we buy a new, special decoration for our tree every year.

Our 2011 Rudolph and our 2013 gingerbread man were bought in arty pop-up shops in Bristol; 2012’s robin came from the Bath Christmas Market.

2014’s chronometer came from the National Maritime Museum, when we had a mini trip to London just before Christmas.

I’ll share a photo of 2015’s decoration tomorrow – as long as I can find it in the house moving chaos!

December Twenty-First – a purple tree

We finally put up our tree today. It’s a purple one, but strangely it’s you don’t really notice it’s purple once the decorations are on.

Christmas treeMost of our decorations have a story behind them. Some are from a tradition we made up – every Christmas since we’ve been married we’ve bought a new decoration for our tree. Some are from my Mum, who made the white stuffed star in the middle. Some have been brought from overseas by T’s family – eggs from Russia and, new this year, camels from Oman.
