A Christmas tree for one!

My flatmate has suddenly quit her job and decided to go to India for 6 weeks, so I’ll be the only one in the apartment in the run up to Christmas. Even so, I think it is quite neccessary that I have decorations and a tree.

There is a stall selling trees at the Christmas market across the road from my building, so I went by on the way home from uni and bought one, thinking I could easily carry it home by myself. It is a living one with roots, so also came with a large pot of soil… It weighed an absolute ton. I managed to carry it about 100 yards down the road in about 10 minutes, at which point my arms were shaking and I was covered in soil, so I gave up and got a taxi the rest of the way (which google maps tells me is an embarrassing 600 metres). Once I had got it set up in apartment (with a little help from the concierge!) and cleaned up all the soil from the floor, I realised my arms and face were covered in a painful red rash! Not sure if this was just from the scratchy needles, or whether I am actually allergic to pine trees.

But I have a tree! And it’s such a cute little fat one. Now I am in the process of making my decorations out of bits and pieces in my crafty bit box. Pictures to follow :-)

    You know, I think you might be right. It’s becoming more and more difficult for me to deny my genius. It’s even harder to keep my ego in check.

    Your tree sounds darling! I don’t have one but you’re making me think that I should! By the way, I’m very impressed by the fact that you concierge! Miss you! xx

    Yeah my apartment block is pretty fancy. I’m moving in March though so sadly you’ll never get to see my bachelorette pad!
