Get­ting into fes­tive spirit in new home

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - GREEN SPACES -

this time of year.

It does have to be said that I am a poor stu­dent and so I am look­ing at ev­ery­thing won­der­ing if it can play a part in the dec­o­ra­tion of our house. The holly that I didn’t mas­sacre will be twisted and turned into a wreath for the front door while 10 min­utes and a bit of gold spray will turn that pile of sil­ver birch sticks info a dec­o­ra­tion wor­thy of a royal palace.

I still have a box of lavender flow­ers that I re­moved from a plant a few weeks ago and I am sure we can find a use for the trim­mings off the conifer tree.

It does not re­ally mat­ter what it looks like; what mat­ters is that it’s fun.

Dec­o­rat­ing the house singing songs and eat­ing food is all part of it. I am sure there will be dis­cus­sions about where the dec­o­ra­tions should go and what color spray paint we should use, but after all that I am sure the place will look a pic­ture.

And what­ever hap­pens over the next four weeks I wish you all a very Merry Christ­mas.
