On this tree like most people, we have special decorations which prompt memories
This is from when the children were little and we would sometimes take the train to London, go to the theatre to see the magical ballet of the Nutcracker. Excited children all dressed up in their best clothes, completely hyper with the anticipation of the whole festive season! The wonderful ballet, the colours and the music! Aren't memories so special.
This is a reminder of when two out of three darlings were learning the trumpet, noisy happy times!
Each child had a robin nesting in our tree, and they still magically appear each year ..... and in these boxes are two very special ornaments just for me from a dear friend who endured Motor Neurone Disease,
They are called "Li Bien" ornaments which means that they are painted from the inside through the small opening with a special brush and they are glass and exquisite, they are so pearly that my photos do not do them justice - they are very special to me!
and of course there are the additions which you may recognise from the last few weeks
Oooh this is making me feel all jolly!
Feeling all festive now - I'm off for a mince pie
Speak soon xx
