It is getting close to being the season of pulling out the decorations ready for Christmas. Mum bought these little string of lights last week, and loves how they sparkle on the mantelpiece. She doesn't need any more, as we have plenty of other little bits and pieces from years gone by. Mum likes her decorations on the simple side, and her and her friends chuckle each year as they search for the ugliest decorations they can find. This year they found a garish monkey on a unicycle, but nothing beats the neon blowfish from ten years ago. The girls wonder who bought them, and if they still hang them up on their tree. Mum doesn't have much storage or room for a big tree, so she usually just have a miniature tree and lots of sparkly lights.
