We have had some rian here, not loads of it, but for a longer time.
Friday morning I went for some shopping, I left the house with some rain, but that stopped when I was half way to the supermarket. I quickly got my things and when I left I walked in a shower of hail! It only lasted for a couple of minutes and then I never saw it back again.
For the rest of the weekend there isn;t too much to tell, only that on Friday Jan and I started with the Christmas decorating, and it always takes more time than you think!
But we did get it done, almost all, most time consuming was hanging back the light at the ceiling, but Jan did a great job, I helped him at times holding the light cords, so they didn;t mess up, and we even got it done without too much arguing LOL!
We will have to finish the decorating today, just a couple of little things are left to do and then I can make an overview of the whole room, hopefully.
It's always difficult to have a good photo, because the flashlight takes away a bit the real feeling, but without it is too dark. But you can get an idea of our living room in Christmas time.
First the tree, I have about the same decorations for a long time already, but somehow I manage to give it a slightly different look every year, just by changing the garlands in it.
Here the part of the sitting area, with the couches covered with Christmas fleece blankets.
We are just like two little kids, when we sit on the couch in the evening, and look around in the room, telling eachother how nice it looks LOL! The big parts stay about the same, but every year we try to change some a bit, Jan always has some funny, great ideas for the figurines and such, and we have such fun finding just the right place for them and have a good laugh about it, hahahaha!
It's hard work, and we are really pooped out now a bit, but the work is almost done and we can enjoy the fruits of it for about a month.
Time I post the freebie for you, than I will have some time left for a bit blog hopping and may be even some deigning, it is still quiet here, Jan is still asleep and I let him have a good sleep, he needs it, but later this morning, hop, to work again, after the last decorating I will have to do a good vacuum cleaning and then I hope to "flop down" on the couch and do nothing more today( well, only have to warm up dinner in the oven, I;ve made double portions yesterday, so that's easy for today).
Another Christmas kit, yes, and this time the one I used for my bloglayout, named Christmas Splendour". I think you will be happy with Arlene's add-on, she made an awesome quickpage, a frame, made of a paper and a beautiful cluster.
Have a wonderful day!
