Christmas decorations up

On Saturday I decided to put my decorations up. I usually put them up on the 1st of December but since I was away I could not do it. So inspite of feeling tired and still a bit jet lagged I put everything up, now I can relax a bit. For the past 2 years I have been putting two trees up. The large one is an artificial tree and the small one is a real one. I love the fragrance of the real tree. It is not strong but I can still get it when I go close to it.

We have decided that once the big tree has served us enough we will just get a small real one like this.
It is potted so I hope it will survive until next Christmas

Over the years I have collected many Christmas tree decorations. I just love them and love the inspiration they give me. When I was working I would take a walk on Oxford street and visit the Christmas decoration section in all the shops. My favourite shop for decorations used to be Selfridges. They used to bring out some amazing decorations. Even though they were a bit pricey I would buy a few every year because I knew I wouldn't find anything like them anywhere else. Sadly those days have gone and the shop has stopped stocking large amounts of decoration. I can understand why though because every garden centre and little shops bring out some nice ones now, and undercutting the big stores with their prices and selection.
Many of my decorations are doll related and you know why but I do have one favourite from amongst them which is this one. Isn't it so very cute? So which is your favourite decoration from your collection?

My neighbours

Some of my neighbours in India.
This is Mr KF . His favourite colour is blue. His favourite food is fish.

I often see him sitting in this tree contemplating or talking to the crow or just watching the world go by.

Sometimes he sits on a fence waiting I don't know for what perhaps a fish? It really puzzles me because a fish won't go by because there is no river or pond there. Maybe a friend throws him a tit bit so he waits patiently

This is Mr G. He is rather a shy person. I am not sure if he is Mr G the Junior or Mr G the senior. He hides quickly when I am about but when he has had a big lunch or dinner he seems to waddle which is rather funny.

After a few days he became rather bold and let me come fairly close to him

He lives in this beautifully shaded forest

He is a big game hunter and very often I have caught him hunting during dusk.

I do have some other neighbours too but they are not interesting but rather more of a nuisance so I spend my time chasing them away.😄
