Well we managed to finally get the tree up this afternoon. Even Jack managed to help as he came home from Uni a day earlier than he said (what a nice surprise that was!). John wasn't at home to help us, he went Karting to Rednall and came back with a bottle of Champagne, he finished 2nd overall and not one of us was there to cheer him along :(
Still got more decorations to put out and the lights outside (hopefully we can get this done before the snow comes which they have forcast for round here tomorrow!) then it's just the food to concentrate on and I haven't got a clue what to buy for Jacko yet!
