My sister Steph has come to stay for a few days again, to help us decorate and generally get into the Christmas spirit. She went out to the garden in the pouring rain and came back with armfuls of tree branches which she cleverly transformed into a Christmas wreath.
She used a couple of old wire coat hangers as an armature, some string to hold everything together and two of Eleanor's hair ribbons as embellishments.
Whilst I'm typing this, she's making a picture frame out of a scrap piece of MDF, some leftover woodstain from the shed and one of last year's Christmas cards. It's just like Blue Peter in my own kitchen.
