day 22: list


I have been working my way through my list - a bed ready in time for my cousin who is staying, food ticked off, gifts for most of the family. The tree is up, that is the home-made pyramid which is passing for a tree again this year. I decided we would just have the lights and old baubles, the colours of Quality Street.  Just one problem. Where it has been down in the cellar leaning against the wall, it has warped slightly.  Looking across the room at it now there is a hint of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  It appears that the so-called tree has a list of its own and it's driving me nuts.

By the time everyone's eaten a couple of those liqueur chocolates that always seem to appear under the tree from an elderly cousin , you'll hardly notice the list !
Good luck with whatever's left on yours , though ...
Merry Christmas !!

We usually adopt the scruffiest tree for the Chrstmas period and many a year have been greeted by a tilt as we entered the living room.

Our tree has a pronounced tilt and actually toppled over yesterday. Gillian (our fairy) landed in the dog's basket.
