My Christmas Tree Trinkets

I’m really rather pleased with my M&S tree – it’s artificial! I’ve never had a fake tree before, but by God is it less hassle! I have no lacerations/burst eyeballs from the needles and I won’t have to spend about three weeks hoovering once Christmas is over! Mr AMR and I are usually so lazy when it comes to getting a tree – we start our hunt about two days before Christmas and end up with some spindly thing that looks as though it has been dead for about a decade. Not so this year! The tree looks lush and green, a prime specimen.

I have got a little carried away with my tree decorations, too – I have hung up about a trillion hand cream samples that I had and a few other little prize trinkets. It has become the ‘Tree of Beauty’! You may wonder why I’m doing all this now when it’s not even December, and I shall just say one word: Kitten. Yes, Ted the kitten arrives on Tuesday and from that day forth, no work shall be done. So I’m filming Christmas Gift Guides and Festive Makeup Guides and all sorts of things so that come Kittenday I can just concentrate on trying to preserve Mr AMR’s bespoke Natuzzi chair and the vintage sofa. (Tips?)
