Festive nostalgia

Here are a few images of our beautifully perfect Christmas tree. I'm writing under it's warm glow feeling nostalgic for Christmases gone by but also looking forward to spending the big day with just the husband, Matilda and me. I spent this afternoon making Christmas Chutney for friends so the whole place was consumed by the Festive odeur of cloves and cinnamon. The husband is now warming up some Mulled wine, the mince pies are warming up in the oven whilst our Christmas candle has just been lit just to add to those reassuring scents. Perfection.
