Festivities can start now!

The trees are up and decorated, one in the porch and one in the sitting room. Neighbours have also made a show again this year, and the street is looking very festive. It was truly magical yesterday evening as darkness fell and the lights were switched on. The reflective snow certainly helped to give a feeling of festive cheer.

I seem to be better prepared for the festivities than ever before. Which is wonderful, especially as the weather does not entice me to go out to go shopping or even to go out for that matter. I am happy never to shop, it is not one of my favourite activities and never has been.

This is the scene in the garden this morning, but do not be deceived by the charm of this photo it is bitterly cold -7C and a fairly strong and bitter wind. Time to hibernate perhaps.
