christmas tree oh christmas tree

It's going to be a funny old Christmas. I'm not sure if we are all going to be together so it's a bit hard to plan, but whatever happens it will be a quiet one that's for sure. Haven't done any shopping yet, but I did manage yesterday to go and acquire a small pine tree and stick some glittery nonsense up on it. Here it is in all its finery.
I have been very spoiled by the Auckland printer that I use for my magazine work. He has sent me the most amazing bunch of flowers - so big I could barely fit it in the largest vase. What a lift it gave me. I almost wanted to be a florist when I was a teenager - my nana was a florist and I thought it would be cool to follow in her footsteps, but somewhere I gave up on the idea.

Beautiful flowers, you are a lucky girl. Hope you get that shopping done, soon. Best of luck, and Merry Christmas.

Rose, your enthusiasm made me smile big time --> "glittery nonsense" :-)
It's a lovely looking tree and the flowers are gorgeous too.

Hope you had a wonderful and relaxing time at Christmas. Wishing you all the best for 2006! :-D
