Some weeks ago we commented to our neighbours that we needed to take a trip to Santa’s House (our local Christmas shop) to get a Christmas tree and their jaws dropped to the deck with a kerplunk. Why would you need to BUY a Christmas tree, they asked, eyeballs rolling to heaven. Our area is positively riddled with them you see. And because they aren’t an indigenous / protected species, they’re completely choppable.
As you can see, it was just a little too tall to fit into the house so he ended up having to lop off the top 2 feet and christened it Finn’s mini-tree. And it sat jauntily on our dining table for awhile until I threw it away, putting it out of its scraggly misery.
Merry Christmas everyone, we are having such a special time in Australia and I hope you’re having as much fun as we are.
