1 Dec : Tree #1


Walking to the bus stop tonight after a very good dinner I had a champagne-fuelled brainstorm for my December blogposts. (I can't pretend that I thought about it months ago and prepared everything well in advance. My Christmas preparations do tend to be somewhat creative - idleness being the mother of invention.) Anyway - I decided that I would have a Festival of Trees - which you must admit it vaguely gardening related without requiring anyone to get their feet muddy. My first tree - as I happened to be in Trafalgar Square at the time - would be the Norwegian Christmas tree. Unfortunately, at that exact moment the bus came and MrM started shouting in a most ungentlemanly way. So here is Tree #1 from the top of the bus. It's a miracle it is in focus. Actually, it is a miracle the tree is in the photo at all.

  2. So miracles do happen! (And I can't believe MrM would shout in any way, much less ungentlemanly.)
    Looking forward to Tree #2!

  3. Congratulations - it's on the 139 you officially joined the famous writers and artists for whom peak creativity coincided with beverage consumption.

  4. Anything champagne-fuelled has to be a winner.

    1. MrM says that it is more economical to buy a bottle and he is the accountant in the family.

  5. Sounds like a fine plan. Champagne has been involved in some of my best ideas (most notably 'Let's have another baby!').

  6. What an excellent idea! I don't think I would be able to climb the stairs of the bus, let alone attempt photography after Champagne. Well done!

    1. I was quite wobbly on the stairs but made MrM go down first so that he could cushion me if I stumbled.
