Did you think I'd forgotten all about day sixteen? I've been busy all day!
This morning I had an overwhelming urge to tidy up and clean. I did consider having a lie down until the feeling passed but no... Feeling brave I donned my Marigolds and have swept and mopped and dusted all day long. And when everything was bright and shiny I decided I would put up the tree and decorate it.
And when it was done I felt a little bit sad because I realised not a single other person in my family really cares less whether we have a Christmas tree or not... and in fact not even one of them has even noticed that I've done it yet. So I'm sitting here on my laptop where I can see it it and enjoy it. And I'm thinking I might not bother next year and I'll see if anyone actually notices. (They'd soon notice if I made them beans on toast for Christmas dinner!)
I don't care... I like my tree!
