This evening we put our Christmas tree up, mainly in anticipation of our forthcoming Mulled Wine & Mince Pie 'do' on the 18th (anyone who's been to one in the past knows this is not to be missed). We weren't going to bother with the tree as we'll be in Blighty for Christmas, but Joel was having none of that and with hosting a festive party we thought we should acquiesce to the good old pagan tradition of a tree (Martin Luther has more than the Reformation to answer for). Joel was asking about putting it up all day so I told him that we would do it after Eli had gone to bed. So in true Joel fashion, he asked Mummy to put Eli to bed at 4.30 so we could do the tree! Classic.
