off we went boldly in to the ‘forest’ to select our tree

once we’d chosen our tree we then got to work chopping it down

unfortunately the one we chose was half dead – but we only discovered once we’d dragged it home which was a big disappointment (20 pounds worth of disappointment to be exact).  i chopped the dead bits off and now it’s a christmas stick.  oh well – something to watch out for next year.

  1. At least by choosing a dead tree you can avoid the part where you kill it by bringing it into a centrally heated house and forgetting to water it 🙂
