The perils of decorating a Christmas treeDecember 17, 2014
I love Christmas ... but decorating the tree? Not so much! We all know the struggles with the untangling of the string of Christmas lights, and lametta being a nuisance aswell - I even found lametta strings back in my decolletage and even in my hair. And what about the cat to consider, who's eagerly lurking in a corner, waiting to making his move when you turn around, and smash some of your precious ornaments from the tree? Luckily my cat just wants to lie under the tree instead of playing in it - I am really that lucky with my cat - but I've heard stories from friends who don't have such a cat as mine.
Yet with all this in mind, I bravely fetched the boxes containing my precious antique ornaments and decorations and went to set up and embellish the Christmas tree. Really, that did not go without cussing like a sailor (so much for being a lady) and I think I have thrown the string of Christmas lights away a numerous times yelling in the air "I QUIT!", "NEXT TIME I TAKE A MINI TREE", "THIS IS THE LAST CHRISTMAS I EVER SET UP A TREE". Does this sound familiar? I thought so.
But in the end I finally managed to finish the tree, though I was robbed of my energy to ooh and aah a bit and admire it.
But let's see what became of it!
