Ask me what I did today!
I bought a Christmas tree. Then I bought tiny white lights. Then I called my sister to say lo! and she brought her stash of old-fashioned (Victorian, I think) tinsel made from tin (uh, redundancy?). Told her not to come until 7 and when she pulled into the cul-de-sac, guess what she saw? Yes, that's right: Lights!
It feels good to be a bit silly, indulgent, even if it's a foreign sensation not entirely pleasant. Eagerly looking forward to what next comes my way.
