Tis the season...

Well, a super Christmas-themed weekend, got the decorations out of the loft (well, Flyingpops did that actually, I held the ladder), put the electric lights out all over the front of the house, in the pouring rain (even managed an extra set this year wrapped around the pillar on the porch), then zoomed to Priory Farm to their "Christmas Tree Land" -
'Priory
- with everyone else in Surrey (it seems, had to drive twice around the car park before we got a spot!) -
'Priory
- to choose our tree -
'Priory
- didn't get quite such a huge one this year though (trying to economise where possible) still managed to spend £30 though...
'Priory
Cleveryly (learned our lesson from last year) we picked one without a huge great trunk, so we only needed to saw a tiny sliver from the end to get it to fit in the base...not quite sure when we are actually going to get round to decorating *inside* the house, but the outside is certainly looking festive now... ;)
