Oh, Christmas Tree...

Today was our first proper day off, for absolutely ages, so we decided to take the opportunity to go and get our tree.  We like to go to Padget's as we can choose our own tree, from a whole field of sweetly scented pine, and have it cut, fresh, specially for us.

We do try to leave it as late as possible and to stick, strictly, to the 12 days rule, but I am not sure there would have been much left by Christmas Eve, so I am really glad we sneaked in slightly early this year. which one to choose?!

My glamorous assistant!

More gaps than trees!

"Now are you sure this is the one you want?"

It's always the traditional Norway Spruce for us.  I like a tree that looks and, more importantly, smells like a Christmas tree.  That lovely smell of pine, that greets me every morning when I walk into the sitting room for the first time, is all part of the Christmas experience.

Now I just have to decorate it!
