The painting has been finished in the living room and although it still needs lots of homely touches, especially a mirror above the fire place, we are in… for the second time!
We also have a lovely Christmas tree in our bay window, which we purchased from The Christmas Forest. They had been recommended to us for their quality and I also really liked the charitable aspect to them – for the past eight years they have worked with Tree Aid; planting a tree in the Sahel region of Africa for every Christmas tree they sell. The planting of these trees helps families feed and support themselves, not only through the food the trees produce but also by the sale of tree products, such as nuts, fruit and shea butter. This will most likely be my last post of the year, so merry Christmas and a happy new year.
