We have a very ‘grown up’ Christmas tree these days. DD decided we should go ‘colour-coordinated’ several years ago, so we bought gold and bronze ornaments, and ditched the old mis-matched ‘childish’ ornaments. I have to say it does look fabulous, especially with the lights all twinkling and reflecting in the shiny baubles!
But… this year DD didn’t want to dress the tree with me, so I had to do it all by myself! Probably for the first time in 20 odd years!!! All these years we had decorated the tree together and while our Disney CD ‘Mickey Mouse’s Christmas’ played loudly from the stereo. How I missed that this year!
And now it’s done… well, it looks beautiful, but in a shop window sort of way, not in the handmade red, white and green that I would prefer. Oh well – maybe if I make enough ornaments during the year, I can decorate it my way next Christmas!
