Well today was the day.
The day to put the Christmas decorations up.
The big box of decorations came down from its place high up in the cupboard and the tree was unpacked and decorated.
Presents wrapped and under the tree.
Now for the rest - a few favourite decorations that go up every year, handmade gifts from friends that are carefully packed away every year.
These lovely beaded bells were handmade by my 86 year old mother last year.
The dining table decorated.
Did you notice the centre piece?
I've just finished polishing the silver - not my favourite job!
It is a cricket trophy won by Tony's grandfather
Doesn't it come up well?
It shows off my handmade decorations made with beads and sequins 25 years ago and still taking pride of place!
And finally an Aussie Christmas card!
