Wow, Tuesday already! And I am late in posting a weekend post YET AGAIN. Please forgive my bloggy sloppiness, lately, it doesn't feel as though there are enough hours in the day! I had this post all drafted up on Sunday evening so felt super organised but alas, I hadn't got my act together with regards to photos. Apologies! Here we are though, at least it isn't Thursday and we have long forgotten last weekend and are counting down to the next one....
Enough waffle let's get on with the post.
My weekend was extremely festive indeed which made me feel warm and fuzzy inside especially as the festive season has only just began and there is much more to look forward to! Eeeep!
Sunday was the big day; December 1st! Which meant only one thing in my eyes: CHRISTMAS TREE DAY! I had to buy a new one this year because the one we have is huge and so too big for our living room now. I bought a smaller one that I must admit was also much easier to assemble than the bigger one (we have kept the bigger one just in case it can used again some time in the future). I also bought a couple of new little decorations for the house. To make it the ultimate festive day I made us hot chocolate with marshmellows, bought some mince pies and put on Christmas songs for while we made the house more festive. Once it was all done we watched a Christmas film! It was the perfect start to December in my eyes.
I don't think December 1st is too early for decorations personally, simply because you have spent the money on them and only use them once a year so it's nice to get the most use out of them! The house looks so cosy and twinkly and can never resist holding out until just before December to put them up. I can understand why people prefer to leave it nearer to Christmas day though, I must admit once it gets near New Year I am ready to take them down.....but then that could have something to do with sulking that it is all over again for another year!
Has anyone else put their Christmas tree and decorations up yet?
