Seren's Nativity, the baby Doofus had a cut and the doctor lady spread it open so she can clean it. Meanwhile the shepherd rockets around with her bottle boosters but now they've all stopped to look at the view.

We haven’t bothered this year. Partly because our living room looks like this, and partly because we don’t feel particularly Christmassy because fuck 2020

What are you doing to your living room? Some twinkly lights go a long way to helping with the festive cheer. I hope you have a nice Christmas period and if not nice, then I hope it’s at least bearable :luv:

So far we’ve stripped all the wallpaper (mind numbing) and it’s been fully replastered (expensive).

Now we’re painting it (slowly). New sofa and TV arrive in Feb, which should just about give us enough time…

I felt the same way to be honest. But Joan's put some Christmas music on and got three up and we've just chucked a load of stuff into the extension. At least it is starting to feel a bit homely for a few days for the first time since September.

We are trying to work out when to buy ours this year. Helen’s work pattern means it may be a bit too early so it dies off, or too late to be worth bothering with and a pants choice left.

Could have to sneak away from work for an hour or so.

We're not putting a tree up this year because I'm worried about the dog, so if anyone has any ideas for making houses look festive without trees, I'm all ears. Or eyes, if I'm reading the suggestions, I guess.

We did something similar when Darwin was a year old and we also had five people staying with us in our little flat for Christmas. We used some sparkly washy tape to create a tree on the wall, which gave us a lot more space than an actual tree, and nothing for grabby baby fingers.

I bought Ma a wrought iron tree that sits flat against the wall and has places to hang baubles, because she was short on space. That was from the National Trust.

Advent socks! Yule note (well done -Ed) that they are not above a functional fireplace as we did that last year and everything in them melted .

Heh, Chloe put a kinder Bueno bar in her back pocket at the weekend, then put the heated car seat on high. That did not end well. :D

That looks lovely though Mali, very cheery and festive. :)

I've seen very similar things, made out of wood (or even sticks and branches) and I think they look really cool. I like the modern look of the straight wood one - I saw one that the staff in a DIY shop made over the weekend and it was neat.

Failing that, tInsel and lights up high (around the picture rail if you have one, over door frames, around light fittings) is also a quick and easy one too, I've certainly just chucked stuff up high and been pretty happy with the result - and no sproglings or animals can get to them. Ours love some bits of tinsel pinned above their bedroom doors.

We let the kids decorate the tree and so it's a bit haphazard but they had a great time and it's charmingly wonky.

Plus, fuck it, good enough and I didn't have to do much.

Bit more shite to go on there yet. Also "tree skirts" were the new thing at our garden centre this year so we had to get one. The idea is that they make it an almost impossible unbelievable faff to get the tree secured into the base.

That’s gorgeous, Mark! My friend got one of those tree skirts a couple of years ago. I did consider one but we like to put our gifts around the tree (keeps them out the way, that way) and I thought it’d be too bulky. I love your deer!

The wool reindeer front and centre on the tree is ace. And your skateboard shelves are brill.
