Christmas Tree, oh Christmas Tree, lit up like a star……….
It’s no secret that I love Christmas and most of all the Christmas Tree. It is my pride and joy, that is until my overly excited cat realises that the Christmas Tree is there and it up it like a rat up a drainpipe. The past two years have been a constant battle between me and the cat, I see the glimmer in his eye as he looks at the tree then it becomes a battle of who gets to the tree first. 9 times out of 10 I lose and have to drag him reluctanlty out of the tree. To him its a game of chase as he leaps between the branches scurrying further into the bushy tree. As you can image after spending hours decorating the tree I am not pleased as he knocks off my baubles and squishes the branches that I had once poofed out. My deterents so far have not worked and this year I have the added factor of one very curious baby. As much as this daunts me I am still looking forward to those few moments of pride as I switch on the lights and take in my masterpiece however short lived that might be.
