No twinkle from the Christmas Tree this year…

Well… with 4 cats under a year old I figured there would be NO point in putting up the Christmas tree, as it would only be on the floor ALL the time.  😀

It’s bad enough with two adult cats (Pie knocked the tree over atleast once a day last year), and I could picture the havoc with the other 4 on top.

So no tree this year.  But I love the light from the Christmas tree.  I wouldn’t mind having a Christmas tree up all year.  🙂

Nor am I putting out any other Christmas decorations, as they would just end up broken… but I have put up the garlands (with lights), and used a wall as a substitute Christmas tree.  High up, in the hope little paws won’t be able to jump up, and away from the curtains (as they are being used a playground).

So, although no tree is up, there’s still a little bit of that Christmas twinkle on show.  😀

 

Otherwise this has been a dreadful week… 2 hospital appointments (luckily not both of them mine), and it really takes so much out of me getting dressed in anything else but PJs, and venturing outside.  I’ll be paying for it for a few more days.

It’s absolutely freezing, which is clearly affecting the arthritis on top of everything else… so it’s all fun and games.  😀

Here’s one of the bigger monkeys walking on the ice on the pond (don’t worry, it’s not completely frozen, just away from the pump):

  1. yeah i can see why you did without – we had ours fall over many times in the 90’s – and then one year had it decorated halfway – and they are beautiful – but overrated sometimes – lol – have a nice day
