So the festive season seems to be in full swing here in LA. Not an advent calendar in sight though - so glad I brought a Cadbury's one with me! We have been to buy our Christmas tree and in true American style, strapped it to the roof of the car! Was quite surreal driving along Sunset Boulevard.
After perusing the Christmas tree lot for a longer than necessary amount of time (lots of 'squeeing' in between), and being told 'That's not going to fit in the car...' numerous times by Gaz, we made our decision. This is actually my first real Christmas tree, all previous trees have been artificial. It's a Noble fir, 6-7 ft tall which looks and smells amazing, and thanks to some very lovely Martha Stewart decorations - he turned out very smart indeed! American readers - check out her range at Home Depot. Beautiful selections for such a reasonable price. Only gripe was that the ornaments didn't come with hooks or thread to hang them...grrr.
