For the first time I decided to have a real Christmas tree in the shop this year.....
I've really enjoyed decorating it. I seem to have a bit of a bird theme going on, with white china birds which clip onto the tops of branches, and several varieties of glass birds hanging alongside the usual assortment of glass angels. I love the way the lights sparkle off the glass, especially when it gets dark outside. Banishing the cold and wet and dismal winter days, just for a while.

I have been experiencing major problems with my broadband lately, not being able to send/receive emails, update the blog etc, and I can't load up anything new onto my web shop page, extremely frustrating!!!! (I'm using someone else's internet signal to write this......) Why oh why does my broadband fluctuate so much - one week working perfectly well, the next so slow I just give up trying? Apologies for the rant......The worst thing was I couldn't watch 'Strictly' on iPlayer! Am very much hoping things will be back to normal in time for the Grand Final on Saturday; I'm rooting for Caroline to win, how about you?
