Here is a photo of this year's Christmas tree. We always use decorations saved from year to year and never quite seem to throw out the old, tatty ones on the grounds that once all the tinsel and sparkle is up, no one will notice the elderly bits and pieces. This doesn't, of course, stop me buying a couple of new decorations each Christmas!
The robins have an especial place in my heart. We always used to have one on the tree when I was growing up - then when I had my first home my mother bought me a robin for my first Christmas tree. Since then, one or two more have been added, and when my mother sadly passed away, her robins found their way to my tree as a permanent reminder.Wishing you all a very happy Christmas!
