Putting the tree up in church was a lot easier than putting the one up in the rectory - I have to build that one from scratch! At home our tree consists of long lengths of twisted willow, illuminated by lights and gold balls. I started doing this years ago when we live in Manor Place when a tree to fill the window space cost over £100. Cheapskate that I am. Putting it together is quite straight forward so long as the cats do not try to help. This year Archie would not leave the tree or the light alone. Numerous times saw me extracting him from the middle of the tree and stopping him frying himself by eating tree bulbs and then Gladys got involved. that as they say is a whole different story!
