No trees left in Castle Douglas
We went to get a Christmas tree today in Castle Douglas, oh what a thing, we could find none, the green grocer, the garden centre and the builders merchants (from whom last year we bought their last tree) what were we to do? Paul would have been happy not to bother but the traditionalist that I am I couldn’t have Christmas without a tree. So we went for a wander, found a little patch of woodland and “borrowed” a branch. We will give it back afterwards if required.
It fits just grand into the neck of a Doug
jar which we sat on Matt’s
plate which I have just received
via Lizzie’s mum after I bought it from his exhibition at Number 8 in Pershore
all those months ago.
Thanks Matt and Lizzie’s mum.
Thought you might like to see some of the decorations, lots of mine and one of Sherry’s, one of my friend Bev’s – porcelain holly leaf with a green celadon
, one of Rebecca Callis
– porcelain bird, Amanda’s glass snowflake on the top, a bright pink glittery Hazel bird – very you Hazel, some wooden German cutouts and a little Swedish
wooden horse from a crazy but ever so lovely Swedish
Scout leader that I know.
I can start to relax and feel Christmassy now, we’re off to a concert tomorrow called “Forgotten Carols” sung by the Galloway Feral Choir, they put on a fabulous show every year of ancient festive songs, it’s beautiful. Put the marzipan on the cake today, maybe should have done that a couple of weeks ago but it’s there now.
