Our driftwood Christmas Tree has morphed into a birthday tree.


Most of my adult life, I’ve taken Christmas decorations down on New Year’s Day. A real Christmas tree has started to drop, to look a bit sad. Christmas is over, lets reclaim the lounge, start afresh for a new year and make space for birthday cards.

This year, although I packed away other Christmas decorations, I am not yet ready to say goodbye to our tree.

So I’ve taken off the stars, the bells, the red and green decorations, and added more shells, paper umbrella’s and a few birthday cards.
