Cosy Christmas

The Christmas tree is up! This year we used alder branches again as they are perfect for holding the baubles. We spent a whole day making and decorating the tree, listening to Christmas songs on TV.

It makes the living room even cosier than usual, and provides the best backdrop for eating home-made oaty biscuits!

Last month, before all the leaves fell we were able to enjoy them on sunny days.
