Work has seen us concentrating on rehearsals for our Christmas concerts as well as making props and creating scenery whilst juggling all the usual day-to-day happenings.
Friday night was our Christmas Party...an evening out at a local pub for food, drink and dancing and a good night was had by all.
Then we get to the fun stuff...decorating our main Christmas tree. On Saturday we put the tree up in our living room; it's a real live tree and normally involves a lot of effort and some frustration as we struggle to get it straight and in the best position. But this year we have a new tree stand, a German engineered tree stand no less. It was so simple; the tree went in, we held it in place and hey presto one tree in exactly the right position in under 3 minutes!

These were some of the first that were bought, and they were bought for me by Simon during work visits to the US in the early 1990's.

The start to the week saw our first Christmas concert performance at pre-school...which went surprisingly well! We even had some of our children stand up and do solo performances which for 3 & 4 year olds was amazing and beautiful to see.
So what will the rest of this week bring...
