Appearances Are Deceptive


















On the 1st day of December, the boxes came down from the loft and the tree appeared in the bay window, plus lights.


On the 3rd day of December a few decorations appeared on the tree...and power was connected to a second set of lights

On the 4th day of December, a few more decorations appeared on the tree.


On the 6th day of December, the holly lights were draped 'artistically' around the front garden.

From the outside it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

On the inside - oh dear!

The lounge is strewn with decoration boxes, partly unpacked. A selection of mini trees jostle for position on the window cill.

In the middle of the hall looms
a Very Large Box Containing Abandoned Knitting Projects - the fate of which remains undecided.
Am I ready to give them up?
Am I every going to complete them?
Would they bring joy to someone else?
Will I make a decision BEFORE Christmas,
or shall I just throw a decorative cover over them
and continue to pretend that they are not there...

The study - hmmm - needs a VERY GOOD TIDY.

The spare room - chaos.

The Kitchen - surprisingly tidy.

The conservatory - its too cold to open the door and find out...



What about me?
Am I ready for Christmas?
Well my shopping isn't complete....
Oh, that isn't what you meant.
You were asking if I was ready
to welcome my Saviour?
That is a very good question.
I will answer it when I have tidied the house,
planned the celebrations,
wrapped the presents,
bought the turkey....
