Mon Beau Sapin – Blog Advent (15)

Grabbing a few quick minutes to blog this evening before some very lovely former colleagues turn up for food, drink, and hopefully some special memories (ahem!).  Since I’ve been tidying ahead of their arrival, I thought I’d show you this year’s Christmas tree.  Here he is – isn’t he grand?

The Christmas Tree

I’m very pleased with how he’s turned out – and that he fit! Is it just me or do they always look much smaller when you’re choosing them than when you get them home?  Every so often I consider choosing a smaller one, but then where would I put all my beautiful decorations?

The title of the post, incidentally, refers to the French language version of ‘Oh Christmas Tree’, to the same tune – I grew up with the francophone version, and have always preferred the lyrics.  They seem less contrived, somehow!

Only ‘ten sleeps’ ’till Christmas now.  Hasn’t it all come around fast? The advent candle is more than half way burnt down!  Hope all your Christmas plans are coming along nicely!

Advent - day 15

I’m trying to write a post a day during Advent, so, please come along with me while I try to Blog Advent – the Country Skills Way – and forgive me if I don’t quite manage it!
