Last weekend seemed to be one of our most productive to date. After a lovely relaxing Christmas Yoga session on the Saturday morning I came home to my living room in tatters as James and his dad fit our brand new flooring. I sorted through the Christmas presents, made the must-have bacon sandwiches and copious amounts of tea for the boys and got majorly organised with Madolyn Thinks Blogmas. 

Sunday was an early start with a trip to B&Q, something I hated doing as a child, to pick up some white emulsion and grey paint for our living room walls. We then took a trip to a local Christmas tree farm and picked out or first real tree together. Every year my parents buy a big beautiful Christmas tree that looks and smells amazing. We decided to push the boat out this year and buy a real tree as it just didn't feel the same last year with our mini fake one.

After a quick trip to town to pick up a few more Christmas presents we got started with painting the living room. Between coats I decided to paint our TV unit with the same 'Bowler Hat' grey as the walls and it has ended up really tying the look together. After a long day we brought in the tree, put the living room back together and got decorating. 

I had such a lovely weekend and it was so lovely to be able to get the living room all sorted and ready for Christmas. Me and James are spending the day together in our little house with our cat Nelson so it is little traditions like getting a real tree that make it all the more special.

Have you decorated your tree yet?
