Put up the tree last night, and also put out a few decorations and other festive chachkas… all of which pretty much has to be dismantled and put away at night. Otherwise the cats (basically Morcilla) will have their way with it all. But it’s nice when I’m here to enjoy it. I’m actually working pretty much flat out all of Christmas week, including the 25th, but it’s also fun to be out and about. What are your Christmas plans?
So I put up the little tree and a few decorations yesterday and, just as I suspected, Loki was all over everything in a flash. In previous years I’ve had the tree up on a stand near the bookcase, but since that’s now become Loki’s territory I tried the big table in the livingroom this time. I hope once Loki gets used to it being there he’ll leave it alone and, as I have to separate the cats when nobody is home anyhow, he can be locked out of the livingroom instead of locked in it.
I actually quite like the change of having it on the big table as this also means I could put out a set of the pretty white lights Susan left with me for the headboard. And I can also display the two beautiful pop-up Christmas books that Teuchter has given me. The one on the right arrived the other day and I decided to open it straight away after reading what it was on the Amazon receipt because I knew I’d want to look at it lots during the holiday season. It’s just as fab as the Twelve Days of Christmas one I got last year. Thanks again, Teuchter.
And so things are feeling quite Christmasy around casa az now…
