Well, amidst the general chaos that has been my life this week, I have managed to put up the tree. Flatmate managed to move his arse off the sofa for just long enough to get it out of the loft.
We first moved into this house at the end of November three years ago, and decided to throw a Christmas party on the first weekend in December, figuring it would give us motivation to build furniture and stuff.
So, we acquired a tree, but decided to make our party a "Bring a Bauble" party. So, all of our friends brought us a random bauble each to put on the tree and by the end of the party it was full. I love the fact that it's the most ludicrously mismatched tree ever :)
