I love having our Christmas decorations up.  But I’m not a big fan of actually putting them up.  I am therefore extremely lucky that my dear Hub is prepared to do it.

We normally decorate nearer to Christmas itself.  For various reasons, and bearing in mind the timing of various visits this year, this past weekend was designated as decorating day.

I love being able to get out all out the various Christmas bits and bobs.  These mugs give me a ridiculous amount of pleasure, for example…


I love our little village scene, with the trains going round and the lights changing…


Seeing our tree in all its glory is just wonderful.  Here are some shots of just a few of my favourite tree decorations.  Hub reckons he put up over 100!

And here is a short video of Hub doing the honours.  This really is a celebration of all his talents – not only did he put in all that decorating effort, but the music is also played by him too – swoon! 🙂
