Here is our little Christmas tree. We caved at the last minute and bought one just a few days before Christmas. Most people here seem to have real trees, but they're cut off at the trunk and embedded in concrete or wood. I didn't really like the idea of that so we got a very small living one, which I think we'll eventually plant in the garden. It was about 40cm tall when we bought it but it's already closer to a metre. Our Christmas spirit did not extend to tree decorations.
Some Christmas cards from home...

(Bron, you can see your present on the chair to The Boyfriend's left - sorry, I couldn't resist opening it early!)
This was my Christmas present from The Boyfriend - a print by an English artist called Becky Blair. We managed to overpay for it by almost 100% when we were seduced by a quirky little store in Whitstable. I later found you can get it direct from the artist for far less. Ah well. At least we're supporting small business.
