Headed out into the frosty garden in search of the perfect tree! After a lenthy hunt to find the saw, stepladder and another saw because the first one wasn’t sharp enough, I was beginning to think a nice 30€ tree from the local leclerc would be much easier. I was convinced of this after battling my way through the undergrowth (of which there is a lot, mainly bramble) to get a good sawing position. Getting the stepladder firmly on four legs was a highly irritating task so I gave up in the end and settled for balancing on a couple of legs. Swaying away in the freezing cold, snagging myself on the handy brambles I though of that handy tree….. however, after cutting, lugging and potting, the decorating was huge fun and the end result most satisfying. Fun had by all!
