I keep reading people are taking the tree down and are feeling better for it. Today I took our tree down. It was a new purchase this year, our previous one was in a sad way and every year saw more branches take another bashing - it was over 20 years old too. As the lounge was decorated last year the previous colours of the tree - gold and red did not go with the new colours of Brassica and Hound Yellow see here so I bought some silver baubles and planned to buy some purple ones too, so was rather thrilled to find some reduced to 50p for a box of 12 in Homebase on Boxing Day! Whilst too late for this year they are now packed away for next year. Looking at the photograph of the lounge (link above) I definitely want some purple curtains for the winter months as the current ones would be such an uplifting change when Spring arrived.
The Sales have been advertised everywhere and I am pleased to say I have bought a couple of Christmas presents for 2013 together with some Christmas Cards I saw which gave me an idea for the ones I am going to make in a couple of weeks. Watch this space.
2013 is certainly going to be a busy year here in Nesbittland. We have our annual tootle over to Isle of Man for the TT at the end of May/first week of June where we celebrate both Jon's birthday and our wedding anniversary. It is our Silver Wedding this year and we are planning a rather spectacular bash for close friends and family, so I will be in my element sorting this out. We thought long and hard about going on a special holiday of some sort and decided on touring the wine regions of France. This should be a hoot!
Bing continues to grow and develop into a fabulous little man. He has his second vaccination in just under 2 weeks, then after a week I will be taking him to puppy training classes. Both Elsie and Freida are helping him settle in. He has had a couple of warning nips from them both but they get along really well. He is absorbing information all the time, we are so pleased with him.
His ears are creeping up!
