…and it is truly ridiculous. But, given that I wanted a tree, I didn’t have much choice. The garden centre had trees the size of China for £35, which I swiftly walked past, and tiny, appropriately coffee-table-sized trees for…£35. The cheapest in their entire range was £25, and is somewhere between the two. But it’s way too big for my flat. And it drops needles. And I’m apparently allergic, as carrying the thing up the stairs has brought my wrists out in tiny spots. And I’ve no idea how I’m going to decorate it.
Still, I like to have a Christmas tree. Hopefully this won’t be a disaster. Once it’s up and prettified I’ll post a picture to demonstrate my utter muppetry.
