It's 1.33am on Sunday and I'm functioning on four hours' sleep from last night. Rain is pattering down outside and the air is thick with humidity, and my little weather tracker tells me it's still 22C outside. Probably a bit more than that inside. I should be exhausted but instead I feel wide awake; what's the bet that when I do go to bed I'll be out like a light in seconds. Firstly though there will be ice cream.

My sister's birthday today, and we went out for dinner to a fantastic Turkish restaurant with brilliant food and even a belly dancer. Belly dancing lessons have now been added to my bucket list, it's something I'd like to learn. And if a big belly is supposed to be sexy then I'll be fighting them off with sticks. *g*.

Today was the annual putting-up-of-the-tree. So far it's taken me two hours to put together, and I still have more purple balls to go on but I'm thinking enough is enough already.

I think my favourite bit is the fairy riding the purple unicorn.

Shall I send you a bit of our bright and chilly weather?

What a pretty tree! I spy owls. :)

I'm not a fan of the cold but right now I'd gladly take a day or two under 20C, if you could possibly manage that thanks. :-)

Yes, you spy owls... I never consciously set out to collect owls but over the years I've amassed a number of them in all different forms. It only seemed right that I should have some on my tree as well. I call it my pagan tree because there's not a single reference to Christmas on it at all.

I will do my very best. :)

I have collected owls over the years too. They're one of my special animals. :-)

There is something special about them.
