2. Despite my swollen hurting hand, fortunately it is the left one, I started our Christmas decoration. A groaning Mr. G. carried two suitcases from the basement to the living room and we realized that we are not getting younger ! Of course in one suitcase was all stuff for the Christmas tree and nothing else ! I should put labels on them !
3. From year to year our Christmas tree shrunk, but this one is the smallest we ever had !
Christmas tree, son with a pram for his guinea pig
When our son was a little boy we used to have one from ground to ceiling.
And this year we have a mini one ! The reason is, we are going to Amsterdam for Christmas, but I couldn't live without a Christmas tree and a little decoration.
4. It took me two days to get the decoration up, because of my hurting hand but finally I managed !
on the tables
on the furniture
on the plants.
and in the entrance my season basket
I didn't even put my nose outside, it was so humid and wet and I didn't want to catch a cold. Fortunately I still profit from the sunshine I got in Egypt !
5. To end the year, we had a Christmas/New Year party in my painting class
We celebrated with Champagne and cakes and had a lot of fun.
After that, I went for lunch with a friend in one of the Waterloo shopping galleries, where I got a new title : I became "the wife of Mr. G." My friend know lots of shop and restaurant owners in this gallery and it is also the place where Mr. G. uses to go each morning for a cup of coffee and meet friends. Apparently he is so well known by everybody, so that they were curious to meet his "better half" as I go very seldom in this gallery. We had Chinese lunch and when the restaurant owner heard that my "take away" was for Mr. G. he added another portion ! After a nice coffee we separated and I went home. I just made it before a strong wind and rain started !
