Tonight the timer finally took its last chance to turn on the Christmas lights at the right time to welcome me home. I always like to have the decorations up until Twelth Night as coming back to a twinkly grotto of a house makes those first few days of work that little bit less brutal, less real somehow. I'm all for anything that makes life easier in the cold and dark of January in England.
Still I like my traditions too and it's time to send the little tree back outside. Never fear though I have the two Christmas gifts I'm STILL knitting on to keep me company and Christmas 2010 alive a little longer!
