3 chldren all grown up as well, but would give us hell if they arrive and no decoration - especially daughter. Mind you i don't go over the top (no streamers) and this year we will have balloons as baby likes looking at things,

As she gets older will probably get sillier again

'Mam' that's a word haven't heard in a while.!

But if you don't have the room a bag fits at the end of a path.

Very quiet on here is it the anticipatiion of x-factor? I've never seen it

Don't know how to do decorations. Using a different room and decorations just don't seem to fit!

Keep looking in boxes and then stumped. Was going to put a fibre lamp tree on big window in garden room, but it was Mothers and found actually it was broken. Should have known as she broke many things and never threw them away. So what to do????

Have hall, dining room and to finish big room. AArGH

This year when I collected seeds to dry I used supermarket mushroom bags. I tied the stallks and hung the flower heads into the bag. Then gathered up the top and suspended from some hooks. The length of them means there is plenty of room for the seeds to drop.

We were so fed up with visiting cats, birds (wood pigeon cooing by the fridge freezer) mice etc that in this house we decided not to have a flap. Thank goodness as there is a rogue cat that visits houses with flaps. eats food in kitchens and terrorrises cats. It does have a home. but our 2 feel safe as they know it won't come here.

Just spent a pleasant 25mins skyping with grand daughter - AAAAH! 

Just put wreath on door, now to do some internal decorations.

Yay  I got it right 

Christmas lights are going up on the green as I write. Last year us neigh bours put money in the kitty and bought 2 extra long strings of solar lights for the fir tree . Will post photo later. Some of the folk in road weren't living here then,perhaps they'll decorate another one. For the jubilee we all decorated a tree each - not practical to have bunting.

Mild was sunny but clouds are now building up. Very, very windy, had to go around the garden collecting pot insulation that had been blown off!!
