Christmas in the Sparkes household starts in early December, with the decorations put up on the first weekend. This year has been different, I got one of my trees up when the floor was finished on the 14th, a week before we travelled up north for Christmas and it didn’t seem worth doing the rest!
When it comes to decorating my tree I pick a colour scheme, but then anything goes, including faux flowers. I’ve even got a bunch of glass grapes on there and don’t like to see much tree when it’s finished! I’m thrilled with the silver peacock feathers I got from Liberty this year.
Christmas up north was the usual riot of colour and family fun. There were six children this year on Christmas morning. I was completely spoiled, Mr S bought me some wonderful presents, including this array of books to help with an online venture I have planned with a good friend for the new year (more on that soon!)
Happy New Year everyone! x
