So its time to drag the tree out while not inhaling the one year old dust as it falls on my head, unfurl its gnarly limbs, then try and form it into some kind of reasonable shape.
I usually try to get the kids to help me decorate the tree, you know the family thing, they seem to stand around looking amuzed while i end up looking like the stupid tree trying to untangle the massive knot that used to be lights, swearing my head off. and because i learnt that once you have spent the better of half the day getting on all the bits and pieces and the tree looks kinda good- never like the ones in the shop,and then you go to turn on the lights, and WHAT DO YOU MEAN THEY DONT WORK!!!
Hence the need to buy new ones every year. it saves a whole lotta stress.
