Oh Christmas tree...

Ever since I was little my mam would always have the Christmas tree up in time for my birthday. It was always a double wammy for me, birthday presents and the decorated tree to symbolise that Christmas was nearly here.

Even though I don't live at home any more and I am slightly older now (a lot older). My mam still makes sure that she has the tree up for my birthday. Tomorrow night, the decorations will appear from the loft, the fairy lights will be lit and the living room will be turned into a magical winter wonder land. Along with the 'Happy Birthday' text message, my mam will also send me a photo of the Christmas tree. 

Until I receive the message on Wednesday morning, I have found a great selection of beautifully decorated trees. I still can't believe Christmas is nearly here!!

  9. Ahh that's so funny! My parents never really did anything for xmas leading me to believe that's where my fascination with it all comes from.
