OOOOOOOOO I just love this time of year and I swear that I am more excited than the kids. I have always been this way, I remember lying awake for hours on Christmas Eve wondering if HE had been. My mum is also the same and when we were a bit older and had been out with friends celebrating and perhaps drinking a wee bit too much she would be the first one up at around 6am dragging us from our beds.

Last night we put up our Christmas tree and listened to our favourite Christmas CD. Now I can be a bit obsessive about my Christmas tree and if the truth be known I would like to run the decoration hanging something like a military operation. Julian did state last night that perhaps my perfect job would be Christmas tree coordinator. Sounds great wonder what the pay is like!!!

Anyway last night I held back from saying things like "no not there, put it here", and " you are not seriously going to put that silver ball next to that purple one" etc. etc.... I just let the kids and hubby put the decorations wherever they liked, secretly thinking that I would do it all again when they were in bed. Do you know what though they did a great job and apart from having to move the 20 that Talia had put on the same bottom branch, I didn't have to change a thing.

Of course Julian couldn't resist winding me up and I kept finding odd things in the tree like this.......

Yes thats correct it is a COURGETTE.... honestly men hey!!

Poor Talia came running in to our room this morning excited about all the presents that were going to be under the tree, she was a bit dissapointed to say the least. It's funny I remember Kalem doing the exact same thing a couple of years back. Oh well only 17 more sleeps to go. Hope you are all having a fabulous festive time too... X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
