Alex has started putting up the deco's on the windows and the boxes of decorations have been retrieved from the barn.
All we've got to do now is wait for the wind to drop and for it to stop raining so that we can start collecting the "greenery". DH found a Charlie Brown Christmas tree yesterday. Alex decided it wasn't good enough and it has been consigned to the bonfire heap (sigh).

Recognise it? It's one of Anne's beautiful pot stands. It can't go on the woodburners as the heat is so intense it will scorch so we are using it as a table mat.
