That is it – Christmas has been packed away!
The tree has been put in the garden ready to be taken to the garden waste section of the recycling centre at the weekend. These boxes will go in the garage tomorrow and we are done for another year.
But I couldn’t bear not to have a bit of sparkle:
Some flickering tea lights around the fireplace, and there are some candles lit the other side. The fireplace is hideous (but we are stuck with it for now) but a little bit of flickering sparkle helps.
Today we (Flo and I) popped in to town for an optician appointment and I bought lots of Christmas cards for Christmas 2016 in the Cancer Research UK shop – all half price. I am never normally this organised. I also bought a few of their new Christmas decorations which I will pack away for December.
Two days and two Christmas prep things in a row – am I really talking about Christmas 2016 in January! As soon as I start knitting again I promise I wont mention Christmas for MONTHS!
