It's not very big but we like it



I wasn't going to get one but I changed my mind when I saw Cro's. 

This morning's temperature was -5 Celsius. This, to my mind, is an ideal temperature for Christmas tree shopping! There was no hanging about and looking at this and that. It's an Austrian tree and I think it's a handy size to stick in a corner, and the branches are far enough apart and long enough for the delicate process of dangling the ornaments and tweaking the tinsel. 

Today my Christmas begins!  

My red nose snuffles out a bargain!

    1. Thank you John. I wish you much the same. Somebody going through a rough patch kindly sent me a Robert Burns poem for Christmas. I think because it helped. I put it on my PiR blog.
