Our very own Christmas tree!

Today had been such a busy day for Sam and I. We went to visit a very promising wedding venues at 10am. After our viewing we had a very yummy breakfast from Minkies Deli:

Filled with sustenance, we went out to get our very own Christmas tree which is my first ever real tree. I fell in love with a short stubby pompon shaped tree but Sam vetoed it on the grounds that he considered it to be more of a bush than a tree. Moving on, we managed to find a shape we were both happy with and after buying hundreds of lights and baubles we lugged it home. Sam did a brilliant job with the lights and after my practice with Robert and Ruth, I think I did a pretty good job of decorating the tree:

It is definitely time to mull some wine and watch Home Alone!
