Deferred gratification, moi? Not usually, I admit, but it's nice to do things differently for one special bit of the year.
I don't normally, but this year I decided to put up my Christmas tree. It was made for me by my dad when I was a tiny baby, out of white wool and wire and cleverness and love, and I'll never part with it. Except that of course it's really a Yule tree, since conifers don't have much to do with the Christian mythoi, after all. Anyway, I put it up and decorated it yesterday before Jus got home as a surprise — and then he said that he'd been going to do the same thing as a surprise for me! Awwwww :)
We'll be heading off familieswards sometime in the afternoon, so I don't know whether I'll update again before we get back. I'll definitely be back in Coventry before the 29th, since Jus has to work then. *boo, hiss*
Anyway, here follows a silly toy via ankaret.
