Day 348 – Christmas Is Coming…

… and we now have all the Christmas decorations in place. We actually have 3 Christmas trees in the house – our usual large one in the kitchen, this smaller one in our sitting room, and a very small and special one in the hallway. Lots of twinkly light and baubles everywhere – wouldn’t be Christmas without them would it?

Day 304 – Halloween, Finally…

When we were younger, Halloween didn’t amount to much at all. Although its origins are in Irish folklore, it’s only the relatively recent influences from the USA that have made it what it is today. It’s big business now, with costumes (seemingly for adults as well as kids) and all manner of mostly plastic ‘stuff’ for decoration. This is my daughter’s house today!

Day 294 – Trick Or Treat…?

OK, it’s another 10 days until Halloween, but with two grandchildren to amuse, we decided to decorate the house ready for the 31st… I guess we will carve pumpkins a little nearer the time (stay tuned!) but for now we are using the plastic variety…
