Christmas tree wars

hi there

Christmas is here once again, so let's all have some fun. thus spoke Peter "Ped" Gill, one of the wisest statements he ever made in a lifetime of wise statements. the season to be jolly, you hardly need me to point out, is indeed upon us.

this means that, alas, the usual battle rages across the oceans with my family about who has the best Christmas tree, who put theirs up first and so on. we put ours up last weekend, but quite frankly anyone who wants the title of "first to put their tree up" instead of us is most welcome to it.

there's no sense of bah, humbug to that view. it's just that i can't go around being all confused and bewildered by Christmas displays going up in stores around October and then contest a "who put their tree up first" challenge, now, can i?

anyway, here is ours!




i had, it has to be said, little or nothing to do with the look of the tree. what you see before you, or if you will above, is the hard work and artistic vision of James and William, aided by their Mummy. the class Santa you can see is the work of James!

Richard, Erika, Lyla and Ruby-Lee have a most impressive tree up on display, featuring something that i dare not put on ours; something that i am surprised not to have been asked about yet!



ace work everyone! and yes, the mystery item on Richard's tree that is not on ours would be Christmas crackers. if i put them on now, James and William will just go bonkers wanting to pull them all straight away. they are, then, still in their sturdy and hidden away packaging in our house!

should friends or family around the world send me images of their tree i shall do my best to put it on display here!


be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
