This year due to personal circumstances we are very behind with the festivities. I told you previously that Christmas usually starts for us on 1st December, well it didn’t. We are now postponing and fast tracking the festivities to try and catch up. Several of my usual traditions have slipped, we are yet to start reading the Christmas mystery, this year I bought a wreath and for the first time ever…. a cut tree! Our usual tree remains in our front garden adorned with our solar fairly lights and on Saturday we all took a trip to a local farm to choose our tree. I must say though… most spectacular tree EVER!!!! If you have also got yourself a cut tree there is hope for us yet, this does not have to ruin our green credentials. When the festivities are over recycle your tree, most local authorities will provide a recycling point for collection. Trees are chipped and turned into compost and mulch to be reused.
