Christmas has come and gone

Christmas has come and gone — and I am only now getting around to posting about it!

I showed some photos of the daggy Christmas tree from my childhood. Nothing daggy about the Christmas decorations this year!

My sister’s colour theme for this year was orange and lemon. These are the amazing, quirky decorations she came up with!

Naturally, the Christmas tree was a lemmon, with golden hearts dangling from its branches. (Photo copyright: Anne Lawson 2013)

I was surrounded by love, laughter and good food. I hope that everyone’s Christmas was as delightful as mine.

    Xmas decorations heavy on cute rubber duckies and chilis sounds like a far more interesting table than the traditional one! Xmas has come and gone hasn’t it…. I guess I’d better get back to some sort of normal life soon!
