Oh my goodness me, can you believe it’s December, already? Where has a year gone? It only seems like yesterday that we were donning our gay apparel last year, yet here we are again!
At the start of the New Year we resolved that we would to be living in Evesham by Christmas, we did it, with six months to spare. This also gave Darrell plenty of time to plan his nouveau de rigueur festive décor, which considering that we donated almost all of our festive frippery to our local (as was) charity shop back in Wolverhampton, the boy dun gud!
His Christmas tree has to be his greatest triumph. There was much debate, most quite heated, when it came to said tree, should we go for a classical feel, with a traditional style tree or should we try something completely different. In the end, Darrell won after producing a detailed series of mood boards and a very persuasive argument, after which, how could we say no?
He bought a bare twig tree with incorporated lights, which he then adorned with strings of real glass drops from old chandeliers that he found on eBay or in the local charity shops, and then added a few small turqoiuse, cerise and purple baubles to add a soupcon of colour.
In the kitchen area he has also fashioned another advant garde display using foraged branches he had already earmarked on one of our walks into town.
Our festive shelves also look pretty good too, Nigel and I are both impressed, but Darrell, ever the perfectionist, says he isn’t quite finished yet ……
