Oh, Christmas Tree
I finally put up my Christmas tree. And by ‘finally’, I mean for the first time in nearly 12 years of marriage, lol.
Not too sure why I never did it before. It sure does make me happy to look at it.
My mother-in-law gave me the money as a Christmas gift to buy it. I got it on promotion at Pick ‘n Pay for R119 (not bad, hey?) It stands 90cm tall, perfect for our living-room. And has a pretty realistic fir-tree- look going.
It was so much fun to assemble. It comes all squashed up in the box. You have to put the different parts together, and then bend every branch in the way you think a fir tree should look. By the time I was finished I felt like I had practically gone to chop down the tree myself and dragged it in the house 🙂
With the rest of the money, I bought decorations for the tree. A pack of golden baubles, a tinselly type of thing with leaves and holly sprigs on it, and of course the angel for the top.
I spent about an hour decorating it, listening to Christmas music. It was so lovely, I will never have a Christmas without a tree again!
I’ll probably buy some more decorations for it over time, but I think this is a pretty good start.
Thanks, Mom! 🙂
