Tree hopping

It is the week of tree decorating, and I’m finding that despite my cold, I can occasionally stand up long enough to put some ornaments on there! I’ve not done my main tree at home yet, but I did do my ‘upstairs tree’ this morning (it’s an old one I’ve had since 1994 that still scrubs up nicely with a bit of tinsel and some lights!), and I headed to Edinburgh today to decorate Mum and Dad’s tree for them. The seventy-year-old ornament collection is still gradually expanding, and I put 140 of them on the tree this year!

More trees to decorate over the next few days…

Not an OOTD: it’s the ornament collection, seventy years in the making, that makes Mum and Dad’s tree so special. I’m not bad at finding branches for them, though, if I do say so myself!
