The twigs have emerged!

We (when I say we I obviously mean Graeme) checked the twigs for spiders and declared them to be beastie free so I brought them in tonight and got them all decorated.

How festive!

We also made Candy Cane Cookies (recipe here) and I couldn't resist making messages with the candy canes like the heart picture in the recipe.

But do you know how hard it is to make a G with candy canes?!

And I am very happy indeed as I am now having a 4 day weekend!

Those twigs look great. It must feel so different having Christmas over there.

Thanks Diane! It is definetly very strange having Christmas in the middle of summer - I don't think I will ever get used to it to be honest. It's good to be able to get out in the sunshine whilst having time off work but it makes winter here very long as there is nothing to enjoy in the middle of it!

Yay for Christmas twigs!! We are still 100% Christmas decoration free in our home.

Thanks for the lovely Christmas card btw!!!!!! It's one of only 3 we have; the other 2 are from our postie and Michael's granddad.
