I put my skates on girls ,and glided through the mountain of work that was required to prepare for Christmas , going to bed at two in the morning paint spattered and getting up at 5 o,clock in the morning to put the Christmas trees up did the trick! I want to thank you for all the lovely supportive comments on my last whiny post, I did,nt feel so alone!!! So finally the big day is tomorrow, and I finally feel Chistmassy, the house is decorated ,the food and drink is bought , presents wrapped , cards sent and I have finally finished work so I am ready to cosy in and eat drink and be merry!

I snuggled up in the sitting room yesterday with all my boys and watched Narnia , sipped some red wine ate some choccy and felt that the Christmas spirit had arrived with us...
This is a close up of one of the 10 Christmas tree spotted about the house ,don't faint girls, some are only one foot tall ! My window sill..

Little donkey found a home under the tree along with the other animals..

my little maileg elf..

the angels guarding the fireplace..

I love my stalk of sprouts and D put them in the kitchen window ,the hens look like there eating them!! Do you like my lanterns?

Finally girls my barn room is finishes hurray hurray hurray! All dressed and ready for Christmas at last..

My mantle piece with our little french stove which keeps us warm and snug.. while looking quite stylish..
