Damn. That tree we lugged home is far too good quality. It is more like an upright, rather dense conical hedge. Next year I will get one 2ft shorter and stand it on a table..

This is from a couple of weeks ago. As we're not going to visit family at Xmas, other half decided she wanted a real Xmas. So went off to get a tree. Cue me carrying a 9ft tree, 1 mile through London to save on a £15 delivery charge. Scrooge lives!

The tree was only 20kg, what made it really tiring was that the streets were so crowded, I had to carry it upright in a bear hug, all the way.

That's an access road round the back of Westfield, so was the only quiet bit of the route. Essentially I then walked through London's premier shopping centre carrying a giant tree, then had a stroll down Uxbridge Road.

Tree post fettling. I wanted tinsel on the tree, but apparently it's not aesthetically pleasing

We've no room for a tree, so just get 'bits'.

Hmmm.. rides bikes, bakes cake, has a healthy sense of the ridiculous and plenty of spirit of adventure, swears like a trooper, remarkably good at putting stuff in perspective, makes me laugh like a drain...

Y'know what fboab?  If I didn't quite like the one I've got and I wasn't the best part of 20 years too old, I'd be quite happy for you to be my mum :)

There's a lot of detail in the bauble's refection! Was that taken with your X10?

No, that was my D7000 with a nifty fifty stopped down to "very sharp indeedy".  Problem was, we had to snog for three seconds whilst we waited for the shutter to close again!

Here is ours.  Yes, I do ascribe to the "more is more" school of tree decoration.

Our tree is nothing special, but I thought this thread would be the most appropriate place to post this:
