So, I’ve wrapped my presents in ridiculously expensive wrapping paper, please note that they are all tied up with shiny ribbon. This is mainly because nothing, no nothing will stick to this stuff. They even supply sticky dots, clearly realising that sellotape won’t work. The sticky dots don’t work either. I’m running out of shiny ribbon, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. This is expensive stuff to waste and I couldn’t bear my husband saying ‘I told you so’.
The kids (euphanism – mostly adults now) have decorated the living room today so here’s a sneak peak – and the boy snatched the mantlepiece decorations and told his father that he would be decorating the mantel this year. Brave! But what a lovely job he made of it.
