After the somewhat grey day in Altarnun, I thought a bit of colour might not go amiss.
Excuse the early Christmas tree - I only set it up to display these lovely baubles made by a friend.
They arrived (from the Isle of Man) beautifully packaged in gold and purple bags:
The artificial tree is now back in its box and hidden away in a bedroom cupboard, but it was lovely to have a bit of colour and pretty lights last night. Now I'm eager to bring in my real, living Christmas tree from the garden and get it trimmed with my new purchases - come on, Christmas!
