Well, actually it's mid-aftrnoon for me. Anyway, I'm in charge of the Phaze Blog todaay and I'm going to be helping you all get into the Festive Spirit as Christmas is coming and will be upon us before we even realise it.
Have you put up your Christmas decorations yet? Do you have particular traditions for your Christmas decorating? My sister's birthday is on the 5th of December so Christmas decorations have always goneup the weekend after that in my family and I keep that tradition in my own home. I love to make deorations with my daughter too. We made a whole nativity scene from toilet rolls, old net curtain and a shoe box last year!
Jenny, from my Christmas Snuggler "Proving Santa Exists" loves decorating for Christmas and invites the office new boy to help her with her tree.
Just then, Jonathan tries the lights once more and the trailing vine lights up. Reds, greens, blues, and pink grapes shine with gaudy Christmas symbolism. I squeal in delight and clap my hands. "Just in time, too! I've just finished the decorations."
"The lights are easily trailed through the forest of baubles, Santa's, fairies, and hanging toys. "Right, just the tinsel now. You start at the top, and I'll go from the bottom, and we'll meet in the middle."
Tinsel trails through my fingertips as I twirl around the tree, stooping low, then bending at the waist, then almost standing straight with just my shoulders stooped. As I raise my head to see how Jonathan is doing, I crack against something hard.
"Oh, I am sorry." I reach out automatically and rub my hand against Jonathan's bumped chin, cupping his cheek in the palm of my hand, like a parent comforting an injured baby. However, the slight prickle of his end-of-the-day stubble reminds me in a powerful way that this is a grown man I'm handling so intimately"
I'll be sharing more excerpts and also giving away a unique Christmas prize later in the ay so please come back later!
