Finished Christmas Tree

Our tradition is to fetch the Christmas tree from Delamere Forest. First stop was the tree sales at the forest train station - such a beautiful nostalgic place. An impatient Little Bird meant I had to be much better this year at picking our tree. There was none of the usual, he looks a bit spindly, he's a bit lopsided, his top's bent or can you spin 'him' around for the gazillionth time. This year I had to be quick with minimal fuss. Hence, we ended up at the main sales site a bit further up the road where all the trees are in rows according to height and type so we literally ran in - 6 ft Nordman Fir thank you very much and then ran out again £40 lighter in the pocket.

Thankfully the decoration stage at home was a bit more relaxed with Little Bird enjoying nosing through all the bits and bobs in the Christmas box. Colourful lights are a very big hit as we have a colour fascination phase at the moment. I thought I might struggle with toddler proofing the tree but after picking the non breakables to go at the bottom and an initial Little Bird moving around of sparkly drums and stars, he is now mostly ignoring the tree! *Sigh*

Your christmastree stop is very lovely! In our place we get the tree from a local farmer. After choosing your tree you have to take it by yourself outof the bottom. Hard working before you can put the tree into the livingroom.
