Christmastime mistletoe and wine

We put our Christmas tree up at the weekend. Its massive, my dad must have picked the fattest one in the shop. I just love the smell of them, gets me in a festive mood. There is just something special about a real Christmas tree isn't there? I wasn't really that fussed about the big day until we put the tree up and now I can see all the presents its getting me excited!
I have actually been really good so far, usually I have a feel of all my presents, Im not one for surprises! But Ive managed to stay away. There just seems to many for me too look through and I can't be bothered!
I can tell its Christmas too by my cold i've come down with. My sinus' always make a special appearance at this time of year and its always a week before deadline day which is terrfic. Im not too worried about handing my work, Ive actually been quite organised this year and have done most of it, just waiting for lecturers to hand back the drafts so I can correct whatever needs doing which hopefully wont be too much! Im trying to motivate myself to complete my reflective essay today while eating a pile of chocolate that my brownies brought me.

Haha you can see a bit of my reflection in that decoration!

This is the extent of Christmas decorations in my room. It used to be my Grandads and sings wiggling it bum when it has batteries in it! My room is not very festive looking! Although I have spotted a cloth Merry Christmas vintage style banner in Next that I fancy stringing from the shelves. I might treat myself, will only work out £7.50 with discount.

Once again thank you to all the new followers. I still cant believe that eight people are interested in what I do. Big hug to everyone!

  4. The tree is lovely, and so classily decorated: perfect!

  5. Nice tree! Decorations always make this time of year feel so special. I get sinus pain too - it's really annoying as I have to rush off to the loos when I have a nosebleed.
